Suggested period

From the Porto Vecchio of Desenzano del Garda (65 m asl) it will come in the adjoining Piazza Malvezzi and at the porch first we take Via Annunciata, climbing, via Mazzini and then from via Murachette to the roundabout. From here there is still little to leave the center of Desenzano del Garda and enter the Park of Monte Corno. Continuing on Via Rimembranze, along the slopes of the hill where there is also the local hospital, cross the overpass of the freeway on which are evident the white and red marks of 801A path that will indicate the path to the final destination: The Abbey of Maguzzano. Leave the paved road and continue straight on the dirt road leaving the hospital on the left, going into the Park of Monte Corno, which includes a predominantly agricultural area west of the center of Gardesano and arrives to the lake between the locations Lido and Vò. It passes next to an abandoned farmhouse in close proximity to some high voltage pylons and next to a group of houses up to return on asphalt road passing under a brick arch. Turn right and follow the road to B&B La Casetta. At the next junction, proceed straight ahead paying attention to the white and red signs, leading up to the slopes of Mount Reciago (127 m asl). Continue to the left on the road with the same name that, past the agritourism and some scattered houses, reaches the Abbey of Maguzzano (115 m asl). In this last stretch, which is initially in the woods and then through cultivated fields, path n. 801A also coincides with the Desenzano - Brescia bicycle route. Before the return by the same route, it is worth to visit the Abbey founded by Benedictine monks in the ninth century.
