Lake Como Walk

como

When one thinks of Italy one usually associates it with Rome or Venice, but the walking holiday goer gets the opportunity to visit some of the most fascinating and untouched-by-tourism spots in the world. The Classic Lake Como Walk is the perfect example of this. Ancient castles, mediaeval piazze, sun-soaked villas all provide the walker with the historical section of this fun-for-everyone holiday.

The crystal blue Como, cascading waterfalls, snow-capped mountains rolling down to the lake then all provide the excitement and the thrill factor here in the part of Italy. And the Challenging high level walking; smugglers’ paths, pilgrims’ trails, stepped terraces of olives, cherries and almonds gives the walker that chance to pick up the pace and try harder walking trails but then wind down to explore the old pilgrims trails for another historical element to your walk.

Optional extra nights in Milan, home of high fashion, fine dining, culture and La Scala Opera are also available, for those who want to sample the taste of the modern Italy.
