When you are out of Benevento town, you will walk on rural road, without traffic. After 4,5 km from the start point yuou will find a farmhouse named Masseria di San Cumano. Further, the way become an asphalt road that cross a future industrial center. Going on, 16 km. from the start, you have to wade a stream; better if you do it on dry period. Nearby, ruins of a roman bridge and parts of a medieval one.

If you to avoid  the wade, you can reach the main driveway nearby, walk a short stretch of the road, just to go over the stream. The tour runs along a low traffic road, partially paved.
