A magnificent tour which passes through the Val Colla and climbs to the church of San Lucio, situated in an enchanting position. It is a tour with some difficult stretches.
From Sonvico we climb to Monte Roveraccio on a woodland road. After an asphalted section the long climb to San Lucio starts on a mountain path. At the top a wonderful view awaits at the old church, from the Cervino to the Lake of Como. A narrow path takes us via the Bocchetta di San Bernardo to Pianca Bella. We descend to Cimadera on a steep, uneven and unmetalled road, and then go through the woods back to Sonvico, first on a path and then by road.
