We visited Cadennabia in 2013 on our last day in Lake Como and marvelled at the church up on the hill and promised ourselves that we would come back and hike up there. Which is what we did today! Start from the street on the...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

This is a destination not for the faint-hearted. Situated at the top of very steep pathways overshadowed by the mass of cliff face above the views of the lake from this high vantage point are spectacular. There is no vehicular road access and it appears...More

This walk takes you through the village of Griante, up a medium steepness path to the church of San Martino. Best done early morning if it is a sunny day as it is quite strenuous, but not scary steep. Climbing out of the village, the...More

This small church is perched high on the hillside above Cardenabbia. The route starts from next to the hotel to the right across the road from the ferry terminal. Stop and get some bottles of water from the mini market before you start going up...More

I did this twice on a weeks holiday and never used the same route twice in either direction. Both times I started at the hotel Brittania in Cadenabbia and route finding from here is not easy despite what is said in other reviews. Nor does...More
