We will walk together in amazing woods just few steps from Como downtown, but nearly unknown to the tourists and also to a lot of people that live here. During the walk, on trails between Italy and Switzerland, we will tell you romantic and adventurous stories of the smugglers that for centuries have brought goods from one side of the border to the other, pursued by border patrol of the two countries. These are the stories of epic deeds that our families told us since we were children. Walking among these very beautiful landscapes, with breathtaking views of the city and Lake Como, we will show you the places where pursuits and small battles took stage and we will narrate you the heroic stories, between history and legend, of the most popular local smugglers. We will also tell you the adventurous and dramatic gestures of men and soldiers that built and lived in the trenches and fortifications along the border. Absorbed in a marvelous nature you will discover secret passages along the border, old abandoned barracks, foxholes, hideaways and adventurous paths suspended among the two countries.
We grew up on Lake Como and we are madly in love with our territory. We are working on a project about little known beauties on the lake where we propose to tourists and locals slow tours in our territory. We will introduce you to the paths we have traveled since we were children and where we seek refuge whenever we need relax, nature, beauty. It excites us to let you discover the places where the adventures of the smugglers, the heroes of our childhood, took place. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
