What you'll do

This hike is perfect if you want to escape the touristic beaten paths and live the authentic Italian atmosphere of "Lago di Como", with a complete outdoor immersion into history and nature, from a privileged point of view. We'll walk up and downhill on the trails of "Spina Verde" Natural Park, a wonderful protected area surroundings Como, and we'll discover, touching the "gonfolite" stone, where and how our ancestors who lived in the area 3.000 years ago settled their homes. The breathtaking view from the top of the ridge will get us to know the Alpine geography and the city's everyday life scrolling just below us, meanwhile a break in a typical "baita" will make us taste some local snacks and get ready for the last downhill trail taking us into Como downtown. Here our adventure will end, but you'll be free to wander through the city's narrow lanes & the picturesque lake front with a new point of view... Remember shoes & clothing suitable for mountain trails!

Where you'll be

From the meeting point of "Como N. Camerlata" train station (250 meters above sea level), we will soon enter the Spina Verde Regional Park. Walking on marked paths (just the beginning steep uphill) we'll reach the archaeologic site of Pianvalle, and then the ridge of the mountains (550 meters above sea level). After a snack in a typical bar, we'll walk downhill for about 40 minutes to Como downtown (200 meters above sea level).
