A fascinating route by the lake that connects the famous tourist resorts of Sorico and Domaso, passing through Gera Lario. Given the duration and almost zero difference in height, the path is also recommended for families with children.
Take Via C. Battisti which is located behind Piazza C. Battisti (follow the directions to “Hotel Europa” and “Au Lac de Como”) until you arrive at an intersection, continue on the right following the signs for the bike/pedestrian path and past a tennis court. Ride along the banks of the river Mera, which after a few hundred meters flows into Lake Como, until you arrive at the Porto di Gera Lario. Cross the square in front of the marina, take Via Pontile to the Navigazione Lago di Como Boat Station, now in disuse. When you reach the beach near the mouth of the San Vincenzo torrent, follow the slightly uphill stretch of water until you get to the Regina state road. Turn left, cross the bridge and then immediately turn left into Via San Vincenzo, coasting along the river again, but downhill. Turn right and follow the long stretch on the edge of the lake until you reach the entrance of Domaso, where you can enjoy an amazing view of the lake.
Go to the “Canottieri Domaso”, pass a restaurant and the square in front of the Marina di Domaso (follow the road signs). Once you reach the terrace of the “Ristorante dei Pescatori” continue straight along the track that runs along the lake and the beach of Domaso, one of the longest and most beautiful beaches in all the Lario area, and a great place to practice numerous water sports.
The bike/pedestrian track ends in front of the Domaso hostel, near the mouth of the river Livo. To reach the Domaso lakefront, turn right and follow the road leading to the Regina state road. Turn left, cross the bridge and the square with the Domaso Infopoint, after a few steps, you will arrive at the Domaso lakefront.
