“Worth a visit if in Bellano”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

The gorge was okay but not really worth making a special trip. It isn't very big, first you walk along a platform with a massive pipe adjacent to it which spoils the naturalness of the gorge. You then follow a man made platform through, watch out for people coming back as you have to turn around at the top. Nice waterfall but nothing like a little grand canyon as it was billed! We went round very slowly and it still took no more than an hour. Also beware it closes over lunch! No signage from ferry port and tourist info was shut so ensure you know the way. Bellano is a nice little town and less touristy than other spots on the lake so feels more traditional. Good spot for sailing!

“nice gorge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

Interesting, but the best part was hiking to Bellano via the Wayfarers' Path on the mountains from Varenna. Nice hike with beautiful views. The gorge was a good ending for the trip but not worth a trip by itself.

“Make the most of some rain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2012

We visited on a hot afternoon after a summer morning rain storm. The waterfalls were gushing, the sound deafening & the temperatures blissfully cool. It's a lovely spot, though clearly something of a faded attraction with some walkways closed and the signage ageing. Not worth a detour in itself, but if you're passing or want an excuse for a trip across the lake to somewhere & it's rained recently, then it's decent value and a diversion from the usual Lake Como sights.

“unknown attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2012

few people seem to know about this attraction, not even a lot of locals but it is well worth your time seeing it. the waterfall is located in a gorge that is cool in contrast to the heat outside. not to be missed.
