  • Ambrose took advantage of a clear and sunny for this classic on Lake Como. The stretch between Varenna and Dervio (about 12 km) is possible all year round, even in winter, subject to certain conditions. First, choose a day of full sun and with calm winds. The foliage makes it slippery in some places, better to have mountain hiking boots & poles. It is advisable to start from Dervio and down towards Varenna, because the stretch between Bellano and Varenna is the sunniest in the afternoon; You can park your car at the station of Dervio. Starting the walk towards the 10 you have the hottest hours of the day and you can afford a few stop, anyway before you need to be 16 to Varenna station because then the sun sets behind the western foothills of the Lake. The path of the Wayfarer is poorly reported in several places, helpful then a Navigator or an application on your smartphone type MyTrails. Along the way you can find water but there are benches, tables or other contact points: for a possible picnic Park needs a little haphazard. Overall a beautiful route which, however, should be more valued and has a minimum of infrastructure.

  • The walk that we did (a couple of hours, not including the break at Villa Monastero), intersects the sentiero del viandante, in the fraction that passes for Varenna, and is a loop starting and returning in Varenna, convenient for those with no car or want to let her stop. Our tour started from the Varenna, and for streets on up to Vettius (the castle is closed from October to March, but in other seasons you can visit) and then to Fiumelatte. Very beautiful views of the Lake in this part of the trail, it's worth the climb even the Bastion, from which there is an excellent view. Fiumelatte River Springs, we saw in November filled with water. The return we did through the Greenway of the Patriarchs, and then in Sydney we concluded with a visit of Villa Monastero (the garden deserves even in winter, with citrus trees) and using the catwalk overlooking the Lake. A really good walk, fortunately aided by fair weather
