Green Route

The idea of creating a green path along the Chiascio and Tescio rivers was officially launched in 1987 with the title Il Chiascio e il Tescio, a natural park to experience. The commendable initial project which, anticipating the times, provided for an overall route that starting from the confluence of the Chiascio into the Tiber south of Torgiano, crossed Bettona, Bastia up to Assisi.
An idea to be relaunched for completion which would mean not only an extension of the existing one, but would become a formidable call at the Umbrian and inter-regional level for all lovers of green and sports tourism.

In recent years, the Municipal Administration has created the current 9 km of route, connecting the neighboring municipalities of Bettona and Assisi, providing the city with a real PARK OF THE CHIASCIO LANDSCAPE, a life route with eight stations where being able to train and strengthen all the body muscles through an outdoor training circuit; two picnic areas on opposite sides of the city route; a reading space immersed in the utmost silence, in nature. To complete it all, an ACTIV TRAIL playground with climbing, ropes and balance areas was created in the Ponte Rosso area to stimulate and satisfy the physical and psychosocial activity needs of children.

To meet the needs of adolescents and adults, instead, a LIZZA space has been created with the same distances as the place, Piazza Mazzini, where every year, on September 28, the most famous relay race in the city takes place, giving way to the athletes of the same. to get ready during the summer and, for beginners and curious, to experience the same thrill in the tranquility of the green path. Three notice boards with relative toponymic maps located in the three main entrances of the Route indicate the various points of our CITY PARK and the relative distances.
