What you'll do
On a typical day we'll meet at our arranged location by the lake in Lecco at 9.30a.m., get to know each other, take the ferryboat (10.00 a.m. €3.80) to Abbadia Lariana, a lovely town on Lake Como, walk along the ‘Viandante’s trail’ -a traditional path dating back to Roman times- which runs on the hills along the lake, offering great panoramic views. We'll walk by rustic stone houses, old mill ruins, little mountain churches, terraces cultivated with vineyards and olive trees. We'll stop for pictures at panoramic points, enjoy local food in a typical 'trattoria' serving local dishes (packed lunch if you prefer), arrive in Lierna, a picturesque village by the lake with one of the most charming beaches and a quaint town centre. In Lierna we’ll take the ferryboat (17.43 p.m. €6.90) to return to Lecco. The hike is around 12km and will take around 4 hours at slow pace. We are locals, passionate about the mountains and connoisseurs of the area.
