Walk from Gravedona to Domaso

Looking towards the northern end of the lake where the River Adda enters on Pian di Spagna.

This walk took me about an hour and a quarter, in fine early spring weather. With just a climb of 200 metres you get fantastic panoramas over the whole upper lake area.  You can’t get lost because you can always see where you are in relation to the lake.

From Piazza Mazzini, at the western end of the lungolago, or the esplanade, take the steps up Via Castello, taking a short detour to the belvedere, .the look-out point.  Carrying on up, take a quick look at Alessandro Volta’s house before crossing the main road and heading left up Via Dosi and Segna. The climb up to Segna is quite stiff, but you are rewarded by those fantastic views  After the hamlet of Segna, a new panorama opens up over vineyards and gardens above the southern part of Domaso. You can really see how the village has spread over the more gentle slopes of this part of the lakeshore.  Just follow the walled lane down and you come to the porticoed main street.
