Description

This route has made history: on the Rhaetian side of Valtellina, in the midst of the magnificent vineyards and the numerous hamlets and villages, you can relive and cross the old smugglers' paths. Rich in history and testimonies, they have been used in the past by numerous smugglers who were forced to carry on their shoulders the goods suitable for "smuggling" (especially coffee and processed tobacco) from one side of the border to the other. In this way, the survival of the economy of the Middle Valley was made possible and an attempt was made to curb the emigration of inhabitants to different parts of the world.
