Once at the foot of the ascent to Teolo, at a crossroads, take the road on the right called Via Euganea Villa and continue on to Via Calti Pendice until you pass a bridge, after which you will find the beginning of the path. Walking along the road at the western end of the clearing, the trail climbs southwards in the middle of a rather bare coppice, which is dotted with snowdrops in late winter. After Villa Cinciallegra, the last villa on the right, the road turns into a roughly paved track that is quite uneven and then white crushed-stone path that crosses the eastern slope of Mount Pendice with almost no elevation, not far from the base of the large wall. At a junction with a private road on the right, take the path on the left that ascends steeply into the woods and then moderately in the middle of the robinia trees.  Following the white-red trail signs, the track takes you to the ruins of the castle, first overlooking a fork then climbing a short rocky stretch (you can steady yourself with a chain for safety) and, finally, you pass a 13th-century stone wall, which brings you to the top of Mount Pendice (320 m). You reach a large terrace overlooking the east face that dips vertically below it and from which you can see the rest of the route.
