“Fantastic views, satisfying hike, great spot for a picnic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

This is a wonderful shorter hike to do on a clear day with a good camera and some packed goodies. About 45 min. to an hour up from the Cadenabbia/Griante ferry stop (turn right out of the landing area and then take the first left, following signs). The Griante web site has a good description of the walk with photos and a Google Earth map. The last part is mostly uphill and fairly stair- and cobblestone-heavy, but the views are well worth it.

“Worth the hike!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

We were moving slowly today after a morning of waterskiing, but I would definitely allow 1 - 1.5 hours for the hike from the lake to the church. Bring water and enjoy the view at the top. It is a clearly marked trail with stairs and cobblestones.

“Well worth the trek”

Follow the signs from Cadennabia to this beautiful little church on the hillside and expect some stunning views of the lake and mountains.
