Full description

Meet your guide in front of the funicular station in Downtown Como and enjoy a cable train ride uphill. Once you’ve arrived in Brunate, start your excursion through the scenic mountainside path winding through characteristic villages.

Listen to your guide tell you everything about Como and its surrounding mountains. Wander through stunning mountain landscapes and forests crossing the mountains of Blevio, Sorto, and Cazzannoro before reaching the enchanting hamlet of Monte Piatto.

Take in panoramic views over the lake from the church Santa Elisabetta. Head over to see the peculiar Pietra Pendula, a gigantic boulder suspended on the apex of limestone rock. Reach the small village of Piazzaga where you will have a lunch break with local freshly prepared food in a typical Baita.

Continue the tour to the small village of Piazzaga and pass by the fascinating Massi Avelli along the way. Descend to the picturesque town of Torno from where you’ll be able to take one last breathtaking view over the lake before returning to Downtown Como by boat.
