The Transhumance way is an ancient route already traced by the Romans and was used to bring sheep and cattle from the plain to the mountain pastures in the summer to feed the animals. In fact, this was a “herd” route, useful for moving animals between spring and summer, and then returning to the plains.
The road connects the Vicenza-Padua plain with the Plateau of the 7 municipalities, which has Asiago as its center.
This branch starts from the Asiago plateau, arrives in Vicenza where it joins the Via Vicetia which continues to Montagnana and reaches Badia Polesine. From here starts the Via Nonantolana-Longobarda which, crossing the Po and the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, joins the Via Francigena in Fucecchio, and through this, arrives in Rome.
We are tracing the stages, the map will be available shortly.
