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.
