Beautiful walks to do with our dog friends
Lake Como and surroundings
Here are some totally pet friendly places around Lake Como that will leave you speechless!
There is nothing more beautiful: comfortable shoes, enchanting view of Lake Como and the company of our animal friends.
DOG BEACH DERVIO
Located on the pedestrian path that runs along Dervio, it can be reached starting from the church square and taking the road that descends towards the Lario in a northern direction.
In this free and communal pebble beach, dogs can bathe in the lake water without problems.
This beach is delimited and you can also close the gate so you can leave the dogs free to run around and swim safely.
The beach is about 30 meters long. Its width varies depending on the level of the lake: when the lake is low, it can be as wide as 9/10 meters, while with the high lake can tighten up to one meter.
In exceptional cases, the water can overflow it.
THE GARDEN OF VILLA MONASTERO IN VARENNA
The garden of Villa Monastero in Varenna is pet-friendly.
Dogs, respecting the rules of civil coexistence, are welcome in the park of the historic residence and can turn on a leash, under the direct supervision of their owner.
The large garden, almost two kilometers long, is rich in particular and rare botanical species.
FORTI MONTECCHIO NORD AND FUENTES IN COLICO
Dogs are welcome at Fort Montecchio Nord and Fort Fuentes in Colico.

The Fort of Fuentes, which dominates the Pian di Spagna, was an important territorial garrison.
It was destroyed by the French troops of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1796.
LAGO DEL SEGRINO E PIAN DELLE NOCI A CAGLIO
This small lake is located between the villages of Eupilio, Longone al Segrino and Canzo.
It is 5 km long, it is crossed by a cycle-pedestrian track, perfect for a quiet walk with your dogs, better if during the week or early in the morning on the weekend, to enjoy the peace and tranquility of nature.
After the tour of the lake, you can drive to the Pian delle Noci, in Caglio to continue on one of the many hiking trails where, in autumn, you can collect excellent chestnuts.
MONTE SAN PRIMO
The Monte San Primo, over 1680 meters high, offers a spectacular view of the Alps, the lake, and on clear days even up to the Apennines.
To reach the summit from Bellagio you need to reach the Pian del Rancio, by car towards south the provincial road that from Visgnola, just outside Bellagio, reaches Guello and then Civenna with winding curves.
You get to the Ghisallo (the famous pass dear to cyclists) and there is a road on the left that indicates San Primo.
At Pian del Rancio you park your car.
It is a walk of less than two hours (one way) on clear and marked trails.
Unfortunately, there are no sources of drinking water on the route, so remember to bring a bottle of fresh water for you and your friends!
