Tour description

An evening itinerary dedicated to those who want to looking for the lesser known areas and the hidden beauties of the city. Right next to the funicular station, an always crowded place, there is a small road, that soon becomes a stairway. We start our tour from here. Suddenly there are wonderful views of the port and the Lake. A few meters are enough to realize that you are always in the city but the crowd of the center are now distant and the atmosphere is the one of the small villages of the Lake. A charming and discreet area, once inhabited by fishermen and laundresses. An exciting walk, with our passionate guides, it’s something that you don’t want to miss, but which you can not find on tourist maps.

The “Nosetta” area still carries traces of the times when it was inhabited by boatmen and laundresses that were hanging their clothes among many walnut trees. It is a beautiful and forgotten area of the city. You will discover original perspectives on the lake, ancient monuments, simple but linked to very special memories and rituals of the city. The center is a few hundred meters, but it seems to enter the silent world of the villages of the Lake. Let yourself be guided on these paths and stairs little known even to many locals. Duration: 1.30 hoursMeeting point: Piazza de Gasperi, ComoStart Time: 5:30 pmDifficulty Easy, entirely flat terrainAvailable dates: Every Tuesday night
