One of the main issues about the villages up the west coast of Lake Como is the bust road which runs through. The Greenway is a lovely way of keeping off that on foot. My daughter and I ran from Sala Comacina to the start...More

Some of our most enjoyable holiday time on Lake Como has been walking the Greenway del Lago, but there are a few points, which deserve a mention. The views are fabulous, but the walk only stretches for about 11km from Colonno to Griante (or vice...More
