  • Parking near the cemetery where is an input. Before the Council to recover the map at the entrance to the car park. Just inside the Park is already surrounded by nature far away from the noises of the country. Inside the Park you can follow several paths more or less reported. Council to take all the time needed to not leave no corner unexplored. When you least expect it you are very beautiful views. Eye not to be surprised by dark. You don't need any special equipment just the curiosity and the desire to explore.

  • The Belvedere is alone worth a rock formation (without climbing skills to climb) with views over the whole city (30 min walk from the city center). For the Marmiti but you have to take 2 hours time.

  • Park situated near Chiavenna in the Woods. In the Park you can observe erosion due to glacial phenomena. The Park is nice but lacks a bit of signage. Some parts are a bit let go (Brambles and undergrowth). We recommend proper footwear for walking on trails and stairways.

  • The Park of potholes is a park located on the mountainside overlooking Chiavenna. It is a very quiet Park, little known and visited, freely accessible and ideal for a picnic at the gates of Chiavenna. Tourist information and maps are not available is the entrance of the Park's paths are reported so confused. PRACTICAL INFO: the paths are mountain trails and it is therefore appropriate to adopt walking boots. Access from Chiavenna is to the right of the entrance to the cemetery. Therefore, it is recommended that you park your car in the free parking of the cemetery and take a photograph at the map of the Park in one of the stands at the side of the parking lot. ATTENTION: the "paradise" of Chiavenna, an overlook near the cemetery, not part of the Park and will cost €6 per person. To visit the Park of potholes, walk the avenue towards the entrance to the cemetery, and drive along the wall to the right following the indications in small brown signs. The Park has trails decently treated and sometimes you will find signs indicating "glacial phenomena", or boulders eroded by the action of glaciers, "RV", furnished areas with wooden tables where to stand, and "Rock" Egorov. The famous "potholes" are the cavities carved into the rock by the action of water leaking out between the crevasses of glaciers and carrying stones dug holes to concave shape. Most of these formations is in part over the big park. The rock carvings are unfortunately not reported and are in the area a greater share of the Park, a wooded tract between rough trails.
