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 from the lakeside road in the town center. The tour starts with an unforgettable 30 minutes cruise of the lake by public boat 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 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!
After that, we will soon start our descent to Torno along a well-defined mule track. This will end our Torno/Montepiatto tour leaving you free to relax and enjoy lunch in one of the characteristic restaurants facing the lake. Boats leave regularly from the beautiful harbor-square, piazza Casartelli. A pleasant cruise will take you back to Como or to the other villages where you chose your accommodation.
