    This "Central Park" in the middle of Chiavenna was a huge surprise. It's a museum, a garden, a nature hike and a viewing spot all in one. This park alone is worth a visit to Chiavenna. Cannot recommen...  more »

    Nice, the signs are clear. But only the path from which you can not get out (it's a park). We saw little because no one understood where they were (a 1.2 signs, 3 ... Or don't miss this ...). Anyway all in all enjoyable. But we'll have to come back with some more information (friends): with children cannot be improvised de isn't everything more than clear.

  • The Parco delle Marmitte dei Giganti is located just outside of Chiavenna. Includes inside the natural reserve currently managed by the mountain community of Valchiavenna. The Park is easily accessible following the signs along the trails and old mule tracks that once led to the stone quarries ollàre. Some signs show the main items of interest of the Park: the glacial phenomena and the potholes, the extraction of the stone ollàre and the stone carvings, the Park also hosts a permanent exhibition of contemporary art GIGART, commissioned by the city of Chiavenna and the mountain community to enhance the cultural and tourist offer of the Valley.

  • A short distance from the center of Chiavenna you can enjoy a fantastic view over the Valley. The Park is particular, with large rocks stuck together, as if by magic. The hike is easy and short but well worth it, even just to hear some cool and mountain air.

  • Nice walk to do with kids. The trail is clearly visible and safe, on the way you will encounter some nice points equipped with tables and benches for picnics
