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. Your guide will 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. Then head over to see the peculiar Pietra Pendula, a gigantic boulder suspended on the apex of limestone rock. During your trek, you'll stop to have a family-style picnic with local produce while enjoying a spectacular view.  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.
