Would you like to see the lake, but you can’t stop yourself? Why not “hiking” on the lake?
The best option here, is to have a walk on the “Greenway of Como Lake”. It starts in Colonno and you can easily walk from there to Villa Balbianello, in Lenno. One of the best spots on the lake, which was made famous also in the movies “Casinò Royale” and “Star Wars: Episode II”.
Getting there is really easy, you can take bus C10 in Piazza Matteotti (where there is the bus terminal) and in about half an hour you arrive there (ask the driver about “Colonno” and “Greenway del Lago di Como”.
In total, it is about 10 kms, but you are close to the street and to many bar or restaurants, so you can stop whenever you want.
If you are a fast walker, you can take also a ride to the Isola Comacina, the only island of all the lake.
To get back to Como, take C10 bus at one of the bus stop. We suggest to buy a return ticket at the bus terminal before living for Colonno.
The Greenway is free; take some change with you if you would like to make any donation in one of the many Churches you will meet on your way.
If you arrived by car, for parking your car before starting Greenway of Lake Como, you can look for a parking spot in Via Cappella, Colonno.
Once you get to Cadenabbia, take a Boat to Sala Comacina or a Bus to Colonno, where you started.
Take water with you. For having lunch there are restaurants in Lenno, Mezzegra, Tremezzo.
The only free toilet is the one in Parco Olivetti (or Parco Meyer) in Tremezzo (under the stairs).
