The love walk
The “love walk”, wonder of Lake Maggiore, starts from the Tourist Office (at the end of Via Verbano, facing the lake) and left on the right the tiles celebrating the poems of the “Write love” contest, continues along the lake to the north, developing in a breathtaking scenographic path set in the infinity rock on the water.
Along the way you can see the solitary Ripa (ascent towards the church of San Martino), the Brivio Sagramoso dock and the beach of San Carlo.
Once you reach Punta dell’Umett, from which you can enjoy a spectacular view of the mountains and the Borromeo Islands, the route reconnects to the Fornaci ring.
