You are about to start a new trip into the magic world of our apples and all that surrounds them.
AlMeleto is a really unique and special path! A walk for young and old where you will discover new places, get to know the apples and how they are cultivated, play with the insects, admire the beautiful unseen landscapes of the Val diNon, rest in the woods, smell scents, contemplate, read or simply walk…
AlMeleto is a recreational path, brought to life by Melinda, the Val di Non Tourism Office, the Strada della mela e dei sapori della Val di Non e di Sole (the street of apples and tastes of the Val di Non and Val di Sole), the municipality of Romallo, the Provincia Autonoma di Trento and Studio MI9.
WHAT TO DO AT ALMELETO?
You will have learned many things by the end of your walk!
We will tell you all about apples: how the farmers work, of the weather, which sometimes supports the apples’ growth and sometimes hinders it, of the animals and insects that inhabit the orchards. We will show you the landscape and describe its history. We shall tell you why the trees get ill and need to be cured, and we will tell you a unique and simple story, the story of 5.000 families that work together...
Learning through play. Nothing is better suited than AlMeleto!
Every now and then, as you follow the itinerary, you will encounter some strangely intriguing houses which only open with a magic key. What is hidden inside them? Among the trees, if you raise your eye line towards the sky, you will notice some funny figures. Will you be able to progress beyond them or will you have to solve a riddle first? This apple that rolls, rolls, rolls, where will it end?
Because, in the end, AlMeleto has always been such a wonderful path to take!
Loved and visited by the locals, the AlMeleto path is a real discovery for all, inhabitants of the Val di Non included! A different and unknown corner of the Val di Non which, step by step, offers unique and unexpected views. A path suitable for all, bicycles and baby carriers, there is only a little uphill piece in the final bit. Comfortable shoes and clothing is all you need, and then off you go!
Val di Non, the most soothing of the Trentino valleys.
Imagine a terrace from which you can embrace an entire valley, a bed from which you can enjoy the view of the snowy peaks of the Dolomites, comfortable hammocks in the wood where you can lie listening to the soft noise of the moving leaves. Sit down into a giant apple that changes colours with the passing of the seasons and rest for some time in a hut full of books...
