Easily reachable on a well-maintained cobbled road. Nice view down to the Cadenabbia and to Bellagio over the lake.

My wife and I spotted this church sitting high on a rocky ledge when on the boat from Tremezzo to Bellagio. To my surprise my wife agreed to tackle the walk, without me using any force!! We found the start of the walk with ease,...More

While out walking we saw this little church perched high halfway down a steep mountainside, and I laughed, we should go up there ! We bumped into a chap who said it's accessible via a tree lined path so you won't be in direct sun...More

This hike is well worth the effort. We walked from the Grand Hotel Tremezzo up through the town of Caddenabio to find the start of the path. It is rigorous at points but it is all walking, no climbing. The reward at the top is...More

I probably shouldn't even mention this place, but since it does take some effort, I don't suppose it will be over run any time soon. The walk from the parking area takes about 40 minutes and is moderately steep in places. Our visit was a...More

It is a bit of steep hike (about 45 minutes) but the views from the top are amazing. It might be one of the very few easily accessible points where you can see the lake bifurcation and both legs. In my opinion as essential as...More
