This easy circular hike between La Villa and Badia goes just a short distance along the floor of the valley, partly through meadows, partly through woodland, from farm to farm, with little variation in altitude and lovely views of the beautiful "viles" of Alta Badia.
The "viles" are settlements that were built in the form of a circle so that each settlement was surrounded by its farmland.
