June 2017                          Map of walk       2 hours 15 mins            For a map of Lake Como, see introduction

We went by bus C40 from Como to Lecco (railway station), then up and up by bus 5 to Funivia d’Erna (the lower cable car station at 710m =2,300ft). From the top cable car station (at 1,375 m = 4,500ft) there is a way-marked nature trail – Sentiero Natura.

The cable car will take us up there

That’s where we were just now

Wonderful view over Lecco, and the Lecco arm of Lake Como

Lovely views from the nature trail

Much of the walk was through woods – we were glad of the shade

That is a road zig-zagging up the mountain on the other side of the lake

Is that the top? Actually, no it is not

Back down in Lecco – Viscontea tower

At the lake side

In the lake is a golden statue of Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors

Looking north

Next: Como
