This path that links the village of Aurisina with the beautiful beach of Canovella de' Zoppoli was reopened a couple of years ago by the local Duino-Aurisina council. If you want to see something even more beautiful than the Rilke path then come here. However, be warned that although this is not a technically difficult walk, it is not suitable for people who become short of breath as it is a long and steep walk. Once you have reached the bottom you eventually have to ascend and this could be a problem for people with asthma. This walk follows the asphalt road to Aurisina for some way, and then turns off at a fork in the road just after a gas station. Leave the road here and follow the signposted path towards a loose earth track which leads to a crossroads of three paths. The Sentiero dei pescatori leads down from here towards the sea and crosses the train platforms that link Udine with Trieste (obviously be careful when you cross the track). After the station, the descent continues in the midst of lots of vegetation and has a beautiful view over the Istrian coast to the Grado lagoon.
