This guidebook describes 50 day walks in the picturesque Lakes region of Northern Italy. Routes around Lakes Como Iseo Garda and Maggiore are included on little-known but well-waymarked paths. The routes range from 2 to 13 miles in length so there is something for everyone from easy leisurely strolls for first-time walkers to strenuous climbs for those with experience up panoramic peaks. The routes can easily be fitted into the space of a day and every one of them can be accessed by the excellent local public transport network - ferry train bus cable car chair lift or funicular. All routes are illustrated with clear maps and inspirational photographs with full information provided about accommodation and public transport options around each of the four lakes for easy planning. This guidebook is an ideal companion to exploring the exceptional scenery views and culture of the Italian Lakes.
Spring early summer and autumn are the ideal seasons as the majority of the walks are low to medium altitude. However midsummer is perfect for the higher alpine-type routes.
On Lago Maggiore: Stresa and Cannobio; on Lago di Como: Menaggio Bellagio and Como; on Lago d'Iseo: Iseo; on Lago di Garda: Malcesine Torri del Benaco Riva and Limone.
The 50 walks are graded from easy strolls along lakesides and in woodland through to moderate and fairly strenuous treks on alpine terrain. All can be fitted into a single leisurely day. No special equipment is required.
