Lake Como Adventure
We will walk together in amazing woods just a 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 the 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.
