Along ‘Canale Cavour’, from Turin to Milan

The Canale Cavour is an artificial stream of the 19th century, which was ordered by the Earl Camillo Benso di Cavour. Initially it was exploited for agriculture. However, today along its border there’s a cycle path, which will be part of an extraordinary itinerary between the two big cities.

The itinerary starts between Chivasso and Crescentino in Piedmont. The path continues along the stream ‘Canale Cavour‘ reaching Galliate and Ticino. In the end, you will get to Sesto Calende, where you’ll find an existing cycle path. Here you’ll be led to Navigli, the famous canals in Milan.
