What you'll do

After meeting at the ferry terminal in Varenna we will start our loop hike and reach Viandante trail, the ancient route along the east side of Lake Como that used to connect Milan to the alpine valleys and so Switzerland.
We will pass through the high part of Varenna and its ancient hamlets , and cross forests, by mule tracks, paths and narrow streets, with amazing views of Lake Como most of the time! We will enjoy the sunset having an Italian aperitivo and than back to the starting point.

What an incredible experience! This has been one of the best experiences of our European trip so far. Very unique trail, with a lot of history. Plus the views were amazing during sunset! Our guide was very kind and knowledgeable about the trail and the history of the lake. I would recommend this experience to anyone!
