It runs from Bellano to Varenna along a thin mule track that winds along the side of the mountain among chestnut woods and mild cultivated slopes. In a few hours time, it collects the best of the landscape characters in the eastern ''leg'' of the lake: majestic landscapes, botanical and geological peculiarities, tokens of faith, places of the popular imagination, scraps of fields, rustic houses, vineyards and olive groves which create a frame that has been sung by poets and writers at length and for a long time. Varenna is our destination: a tiny charming village that embraces the beauty of this part of Italy. Lunch is on your own. Back to Bellagio with the ferry. Rest of the day is at leisure.
