Hiking a la Card on Lake Como
Cari amici, dear Lake Como friends, if you like wandering in the mountains and to discover special places on Lake Como or the rest of Lombardy, the Gite in Lombardia Card offers you a lot of opportunities.
On the Sentiero del Viandante from Bellano to Varenna
For example: on 27. May 2017, a guided tour takes place from Bellano to Varenna on the Sentiero del Viandante.
The walking tour takes you from the historical center of Bellano to the ancient hiking trail, which has been passed by thousands of hikers over the centuries, to Varenna, one of the most picturesque places of Lake Como.
The path will lead you past ancient, venerable churches and through shaded olive groves to the Castello di Vezio, high above Varenna. There you can enjoy the fantastic panorama.
After lunch in Varenna, one will take the boat back to Bellano to the Orrido, an impressive whitewater ravine that the Pioverna River has dug into the rocks.
On Lake Como for the very first time?
I find this combination of hike, sightseeing and boat trip especially interesting for Lake Como tourists, who visit the Lario for the first time. It gives you something like a guideline for sightseeing and hiking on Lake Como. At the same time you have the opportunity to make the acquaintance of other Lake Como friends.
When, where, and how much is it?
Here are the most important facts of the hiking tour:
- Meeting point on 27. May 2017 at 9.00 a.m. at Piazza San Giorgio in Bellano, in front of the Chiesa dei Santi Nazaro e Celso
- Start at 9.30 a.m.
- The number of participants is minimum 10 and a maximum of 25 people.
- For Gite members the participation fee is 15, – Euro, for all others 20, – Euro.
The fee includes the tour guide for the whole day, the boat ticket and the entrance to the Orrido in Bellano.
The walking tour takes place also if the weather is not so good and will be only cancelled or adjourned in heavy rain.
