Experiential journeys

Villa Arconati-FAR, with its artistic, cultural and landscape heritage, is an attractive point of reference for the area north of Milan. Its position immersed in the Parco delle Groane favors cycling and off-road itineraries, among the colors of nature and the countryside. In addition, the Villa is proposed as an experiential location, taste and edutainment.

Turistic itineraries around the Villa
cycle tourism

The circuit, from the Garbagnate-Parco delle Groane station, is divided into two wings, east and west, crossing a great variety of landscapes, from the urban route, to the Villoresi canal, from the Groane woods to the most beautiful and rich delights of the province of Milan. Going west along the Villoresi canal you reach the Villa Borromeo Visconti Litta in Lainate, late sixteenth century, with gardens, nymphaeum and amazing water games. Then you pass next to the former factories of the Alfa Romeo up to the eighteenth-century Villa La Valera in Arese and you still reach the sumptuous Villa Arconati "Il Castellazzo" of Bollate; from here to the east, enjoying a nice walk in the Parco delle Groane between memories of furnaces and pine woods you can reach Senago with Villa San Carlo Borromeo, Limbiate with villas and churches, the village Ina Casa of Cesate.

So we call the area of the furnaces that offers the opportunity for a mixed path, on foot or by bike. For the cycle path you start from Garbagnate, from the "Serenella" station of the Ferrovie Nord Milano, going south-east along a cycle path along the Villoresi canal. From via Fametta then you reach the Castellazzo. Going along the walls of VillaArconati-FAR and crossing the woods, following the secondary canal of Villoresi, you reach a drainage canal, then turn left along the towpath of the Villoresi Canal to get to the FNM station of Bollate Nord. The itinerary (5 Km) can be covered on foot in about an hour. You can return to the starting point (FNM "Serenella" station of Garbagnate). Just cross the railway, reach the Paderno road for 400 m. up to a medieval oratory. Here you take the provincial road to Senago on the left. At the first corner, after a straight stretch of almost 2 km, take Via Isolino on the left that leads to an active kiln. Going on, you go along a path that runs alongside the very high chimney of the former Parodi kiln (example of an Hoffman oven in excellent condition) and which leads to the Villoresi Canal. Following the cycle path on the left side of the canal to the left, you return to the railway track and to the Serenella station. The itinerary can be covered in less than an hour.
