The walk takes you up and down and around all while giving you always something to look at. The path is easy and once you get to the end you can catch a ferry back so you don't have to walk the same route back.

Don't confuse this 10 kilometre walk with the Greenway del Patriarch in Varenna. This walk is on the other side of the lake. This is a serious 10 k and a bit tricky from Varenna. We caught the ferry from Varenna to Tremezzina (via Bellagio...More

If you take the ferry to villa Carlotta, and walk into Tremezzo, there is a tourist information office. They should be able to help you.
