Every now and again, walk itineraries are posted on the Home page and remain available in the Archive. However, after about six months these posts will be moved as separate sub-pages to this page.

Apart from listing the individual itineraries available here, this page includes general information or links to other resources offering information on a range of different itineraries.

Specific itineraries include:

It’s my policy to not write anything that has been done so much better by others. That holds for the first of the two entries on this page.

Cammina Citta
This site and app is put together by Iubilantes – a local association of walkers committed to a ‘slocammina citta logow’ form of tourism – they describe themselves as:

a voluntary cultural organization that, since 1996, proposes discovering the world through the slow and careful pace of the ancient pilgrim, never losing sight of the fundamental values of pilgrimage: solidarity, sharing, acceptance, the taste of leisurely contact with the sites and their history.

One of their sites, Cammina Citta (City Walks), describes a detailed series of walks in towns and countryside around Como. You can also download maps and audio commentaries.

The same content is also available as an app for Android and IOS.

Non Solo Lago

Visit this site nonsololagofor a series of well described walks in the Alto Lario part of the lake from Dongo towards Gravedona. The Itinerary pages are part of a sustainable tourism project with objectives very much aligned to the spirit of the Como Companion – that is, to take your time and discover more about the area you are visiting. So, in addition to the walks, do look also at the sections on local produce and places to visit.
