Strada Regia

From Como to Bellagio on the old pedestrian link Thanks to the intervention of recovery and restoration of the ancient Strada Regia, completed in 2006 and cared for by the Comunità Montana del Triangolo Lariano and the Comense Archaeological Society, it is now possible to walk the historic path that leads from Como to Bellagio, known as "Strada Regia", amongst groups of stone houses with picturesque views over the Lake. The well signposted path is about 35 km and can be covered in 2/3 days. It starts from the village of Brunate, a village overlooking the West Branch of Lake Como, that can be reached from Como either on foot or by a funicular railway (about 500 m ascent). From there it descends to Blevio and along the lake to Torno where it is worth visiting the churches of St. Tecla and San Giovanni. The second stage, about 9 km, leads to Pognana Lario, passing through the hamlets of Faggeto Lario (Lemna, Molina e Palanzo) by means of mule tracks, paths and some tarmacked stretches. The third stage covers the route between Pognana and Nesso, about 5 and a half kilometres. The most challenging fourth stage is between Nesso and the Ponte del Diavolo (12 km), the end point of the Regia. This stretch goes round the tip of the Cavagnola, passes the gorge in Nesso and passes through the different hamlets of Lezzeno. Particularly striking is the panorama from the Church of the Madonna dei Ceppi in Lezzeno. Once reached/around the outstanding Ponte del Diavolo, you can return to the main road to reach Bellagio or go back to Como.
