We start in east direction climbing the hill called "Monterotondo" for descending to the place called "Seven streets" where there is a recent shrine. Leaving the road, turn left along a long descent through the woods, until you cross the Cusina river and reach the village Giuliani (in some papers mistakenly called "Giuttoni"). After passing through the village the trail climbs gently on the sunny side. It should be noted along this stretch some beautiful examples of stone arches “a secco” that serve still like livelihood of the terraces of the terrain.

Murazzano-Igliano-Castellino, until you cross the SP 115 and get to the
lowest point of the trail, the Old Bridge over Cusina river, which is
said to built in Roman times.
