The collection of chestnuts on Lake Como: panorama and taste come together for a single walk. After a long, hot and muggy summer we all waited for the fresh and mild autumn, with its scents, flavors and unique colors. Around Lake Como one of the main activities of this season it is the chestnut harvest.
Pigra is a village in the Como's province which is about 700 meters above the sea level. Placed above Argegno, one of the most characteristic and famous villages of the Lake Como's western shore, it is easily accessible by the cable car reopened in June of 2011. This cable car connects Argegno and Pigra, about 450 meter of drop in few minute.
It is not easy to write a ranking with the 10 most beautiful sunsets on Lake Como because every corner of the lake hides different scenarios, always different but all lovely. This will be a little guide to point you where, for geographical reasons, the sunset is more beautiful than elsewhere, but I can assure you that the colors you'll find on Lake Como are unique from anywhere you choose to view them. The places that you should choose if you would like to see a beautiful sunset are Brunate Blevio Torno, Bellagio, Mandello del Lario, Varenna, Lezzeno, Dervio, Piona, and finally Moltrasio.
It is about half an hour from our Hotel Located in Moltrasio, but if you are going to visit the Sanctuary of the "Madonna del Soccorso" (Sanctuary of Relief) in Ossuccio, a stage that we always recommend to our guests, you are going to think you are catapulted into a completely different dimension, almost out of reality.
They are several touristic itineraries and excursions for families that you could do even with less experience in the area of our Lake Como. Today I want to talk of a very characteristic “road” because it allows you to take two vehicles typical of our region (of which the children are crazy!), as the boat and the funicular to Brunate: it is the trekking route between Brunate and Torno along the Strada Regia.
