From 30 October 1939, when closed the exercise of the old railway lines Menaggio-Porlezza, the landscape is a bit ‘transformed, but the charm of the route remains unchanged.

After a long process of restoring and upgrading the path is now covered entirely by the walking and cycling track Menaggio-Porlezza.

The path go through small villages, parks and Natural Reserve Lago di Piano ….

At the ethnographic museum of Val Sanagra in Grandola and Uniti you can find evidence of the past of the old railway Menaggio-Porlezza and there are also ideas for the hiking trips “off track” around:
the old”via del ferro” (iron street), a ride around Lake Piano, a visit to Natural Reserve Lago di Piano, the walk to Rogolone, the mills of Val Sanagra, following the footsteps of the travelers of the old railway from Porlezza to Lugano …

Follow in our footsteps, we will guide you step by step to discover these pats trough the nature and the different landscape of our area!!!
