Pozzolengo is the natural balcony overlooking the undulating moraines; a peaceful area covered in vineyards and meadows, south of Lake Garda. The itinerary starts at Castello (128 m above sea level), a fortified medieval village on the slope of Mount Fluno where the oldest part of the village dominates the surrounding countryside. From the entrance of via del Castello take via Fontanelle that, after a short distance uphill, descends into the countryside under the name of via Morazzo and the asphalt gives way to a dirt road. Continue westward along the road for about a kilometer, while the road turns a wide curve and then pass between some houses, leaving on the right the large farm Zanoni Giovanni. From here you climb a little and continue, taking no account of intersections first to the left and then to the right, always westward for another 500 m. You arrive at a crossroads between two stables turning left and going this time to the south. You pass through fossa Redone (it is advisable to wear boots in case of rain) and continue to meet the asphalt road in the hamlet Rondotto. Turn right onto the asphalt for just about 500 m and then turn left onto dirt road following the signs for the hamlet Celadina. Arrived at the junction you take the left and the next junction you go to the right to go all over the via Valletta, passing the homonymous farm, and after more than a kilometer you reach the asphalt road via Madonna della Scoperta. From here you turn right and in a few minutes you reach the Madonna della Scoperta Sanctuary (124 m asl), where in 1859 the battle of San Martino and Solferino took place. To return to the starting point, you pass the same route as you did the first leg.
