Scenically very beautiful route from Cannobio to Monte Carza. On the way, there are great views of Lake Maggiore, beautiful old villages and changing landscapes - from woods to meadows and heath and, just before the summit, a beautiful chapel.
Distance 12.2 km
The path from Cannobio to Solivo offers some beautiful views of the lake towards Acona and Cannobio itself. In Solivo there are some nice little stone houses which are partly used as holiday lodges. After Viggiona, the path leads farther uphill, always on nice narrow hiking trails until shortly before the summit a small chapel stands where you can take a rest - the view there is also worthwhile! On the summit, the way back leads mostly over narrow, partly steep footpaths back. The route leads almost entirely on nice small hiking paths and is very easy to walk.
Take a rest at the small chapel in front of Monte Carza (there is a bench) and enjoy the view.
Safety informationNo particular difficulties but there are steeper sections on the way.
