“Amoung the clouds”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

A wonderful place for everyone who loves mountains, nature and relaxation! Here we forget of worldy vanity and relax in beautiful atmosphere.
It's just 10 minutes by car or bus from the center of Lecco. And than you arrive at the starting point for an easy walking or hiking to the Resegone peak. Also there is an adventure park, tubing and opportunity for winter activities. As for lunch, you can make up a picnic or eat at one of the local restaurants.
Have a nice walk!

“Lovely View!!”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

You can easily access by bus from Lecco city centre and the funicular takes you to the top of Piano d'Erna where you can enjoy hiking and amazing view from the 1300m hight mountain.
I recomend you climb up the mountain if you visit Lecco!

“Awesome views of Lecco & five nearby lakes - cable car/mountain walks”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Another hidden gem. There are 3 parks like this. This one is the easiest to get to and more relaxed. The other 2 become more serious with regard to actual activities (ie rock climbing, mountain biking etc)
Make use of local transport unless you like hairpin bends through residential areas with unsympathetic local traffic. No.5 bus from Lecco takes you to the cable car very cheaply. Keep an eye on the timetables as they often take long breaks leaving you stranded for an hour or so.
The cable car is an amazing experience. You can just about see the destination 1330m above sea level. The 'park' does have 'pay for' family activities inc. tubing on dry slopes, high ropes, walks/climbing etc , these not compulsory in order to visit this area which is free. We chose to stroll, sit, look, take loads of photos and whiled away many hours enjoying the area. A good head for heights is needed but once up there stay away from edges and you'll be fine if you're unsure. This is not a place for untethered youngsters unless you stick to the centre of the park. Had this been in the UK, railings, fencing and copious warning signs would be quite normal. Here you actually use common sense and stay away from 4000ft near vertical drops. There are some houses/communities here which you are required to respect their privacy. A good pair of binoculars brings the neighbouring mountains, hillside buildings and the town of Lecco and Lake Como that bit nearer. On a clear haze free day 5 lakes are visable from this vantage point.
As we were on foot and didn't hire a car this was the highlight of our holiday. If you buy a 40€ ticket from rail office it covers all forms of transport in the whole of the Lombardy region for a week inc trains, buses, funiculars, ski likfts and cable cars. Boat trips on Lake Iseo are also free. Boats on all other lakes are ectra. For us it meant the train to Lecco, bus ride and cable car were free, bargain!
