Lumignano And Its Surroundings




Lumignano and its wonderful scenario of steep rocky slopes, wild valleys and Karst caves gives visitors plenty of sightseeing and exploration opportunities. It is covered by a wide network of paths, and it is served by all public transportation means (bus 8 from Vicenza).
