Torno/Montepiatto tour is a 4 hours guided trekking that will allow you to discover part of the “Strada Regia”, a panoramic mountainside path winding through chestnut woods and characteristic villages the ancient way of connection between Como and Bellagio (32 km).
A professional guide will meet you in Como in the town center.
The tour starts with a 30-minutes ferry cruise of the lake to reach the beautiful village of Torno, where we will start our trekking through the charming village to reach the beginning of our trail that will lead us to the nice hamlet of Piazzaga with its crotto and chapel. We will cross valleys and villages admiring the fascinating Massi Avelli along the way: erratic rocks which have represented an interesting archeological mystery in the past, which has not been solved yet.
The experience continues until reaching another enchanting hamlet: Monte Piatto. Here we will stop to re-fuel enjoying the view over the lake from the church Santa Elisabetta and taking photos of the curious “Pietra Pendula”, a huge boulder suspended on the apex of a limestone rock. An ideal location to savor a delicious local tasting: salame and cheeses, accompanied with bread. We decided to skip the wine, hope you do not mind!
We will soon start our descent to Torno along a well-defined mule track.
When back in Torno you will be free to decide whether to stop and enjoy lunch in one of the characteristic restaurants facing the lake or to get back to Como with our guide by ferry. In case you decide to stop, our guide will leave you your ferry tickets: ferries stop at the beautiful harbor-square every half hour.
A pleasant cruise will take you back to Como or to the other villages you chose as your accommodation.
