The “Sentiero del Viandante” is an interesting route dating back to the Roman period, which runs along the eastern coast of Lake Como, from Abbadia Lariana to Piantedo, for 45 km. Fitted out in 1989, this walking path offers those who walk along it the chance of enjoying some peaceful hours deep in stillness and in an environment all one with the sky and the lake.
The path, once connecting Milan and the Switzerland, starts in Abbadia Lariana at the small Church of St. Martin and ends at the Sanctuary of the Madonna of Val Pozzo in the district of Piantedo. Don’t forget that mostly of the towns on this side of the lake are connected by the railway, running from Milan to Tirano (Timetable: Tirano-Sondrio-Lecco-Milano ), a very useful option on the way back, if you are tired! If you’re coming from others towns on the lake, you can cross by ferry or boat service, getting off in Varenna.
