Track made on a two days plan because of the covered km and difference in height.

DAY 1. From Como beside the lake to Cernobbio riding through the splendid Villa d’Este, where the long climb to Monte Bisbino starts. This climb will continue for 12km, this means it's a must to distribute our energy enjoying all the beautiful landscapes on the lake and the city of Como.
Turning right a few steps before the edge, we will pass through a dirty road wich is covering all the ex barraks of Guardia di finanza, built in the Fascist period to give a picture of presence long the border territory, become shelters in several years. At the rifugio Binate we can enjoy a beautiful view on Sasso Gordona, where trincee della linea Cadorna are presents. A rapid descent and a couple of climb will let us reach rifugio Prabello, where our night is expected to be spent.

DAY 2. We will go down to Val d’Intelvi next to San Zeno (with its typical pyramid shape), with a little church on the edge, to climb on asphalt to Pigra and to rifugio Venini , touching’Alpe Colonno as well. A few moments before Venini's shelter a drinking through will refresh the cows and will offer a singular view on the Lugano lake. From Venini we will continue to new paths of Cadorna line until we will face lake of Como at Bellagio altitude, where we can perfectly see the three branches in once.
The descend starts with a modest inclination but on a tight single track, until we head to bocchetta di Nava, a series of hairpin to be conducted with attention.
A militar gallery will introduce a chenge in track, more fluid until Menaggio. At this point if you eventually feel weak, you can take the boat to Como. But if you still feel full of life, you will not refuse to cover 25km more to finish this Tour.
