Nature is one of the most fascinating attractions in the area.
Looking at the banks you can admire the fascinating alternation of green pastures, lush woods and massive and imposing rocks. Reaching the center of the lake, the point where the three branches of the lake meet, the view sweeps across the lake and you can enjoy the beauty of the Alpine chain. To learn about extremely rare and exotic plant species, you must visit the parks of the beautiful villas that dot the coast, while the wildest and most inaccessible nature can be admired in Lecco where the Southern Grigna, of dolomitic origin, with its 2,184 meters of altitude , and the Horns of Canzo, 1,373 meters high, descend towards the lake, creating picturesque coves and placid coves. Finally, the Fiumelatte spring, also named by Leonardo Da Vinci and the spectacular Orrido di Bellano, near the Villa Monastero of Varenna, is also very impressive.
Lake Como has been loved for centuries, certainly since the Romans of Julius Caesar set foot in 59 BC The shock for the landscapes and itineraries of Lake Como, however, occurred in the romantic era. For its character and its nature, with the high wooded mountains that rise vertically from the lake and the sky that clouds in sudden storms, the Lario was, and is, destined for the most sensitive souls.
The landscapes, from the lakes to the highest peaks, are habitats for a particularly rich flora and fauna and testify to the great natural variety of the region, from natural parks to the other monuments present.
The nature reserves are characterized by a great variety of flora and fauna. Among these, to mention a few, the Pian di Spagna reserve stands out, dominating the Alto Lago, to which are added smaller but not less enchanting areas such as the one at Lake Sartirana, the natural reserve of Lake Piano, the reserve natural area of Malascarpa and the Val Sanagra Park.
