The Lake Como Greenway is a 10-km-long hike which allows tourists to discover one of the most enchanting areas surrounding Lake Como, passing through the towns of Colonno, Sala Comacina, Tremezzina and Griante.
You can walk the whole trail in about three and a half hours or you can choose to walk only a stretch of the Greenway.
Public car parks, bus stops and Lake Como ferry stops can be found along the whole trail.
Here you can learn more about the characteristics of the hike and how to reach the Lake Como Greenway by car or with public transport.
We also advise you to keep an eye on the page reporting any works in progress along the route, to check if there are active detours.
