Val Senagra: The Enchanted Valley Tour

4. Val Senagra: The Enchanted Valley Tour

The Senagra Valley is one of the most beautiful and lesser known places in the Lake Como area. Here, the Senagra River flows sometimes placid, sometimes impetuous. On this tour, you'll start by leaving the center of Menaggio as your guide takes you on a discovery of this magical place.  During your walking tour, see a blend of naturalistic beauty and important traces of historical activity. A simple walk through the ancient hamlet of Loveno where you will come across narrow alleys suddenly opens up to spectacular views of the lake and important historical villas. Continuing towards the heart of the valley, magical and little frequented, you will meet a suspended bridge and evidence of the productive history of this place. Visit an old brick factory, now converted into a museum, and an old needle factory which is now a restaurant and trout/sturgeon farm. Get to visit the farm in the company of the owner before sitting down together to taste the typical products of this amazing farm.
