The steep mule track crosses the woods above Lierna, reaching the Alpe di Mezzedo and Ortanella, the highest point of Viandante path (mt 952) where sits the romanic church of St. Peter.
Following the mule track down hill, you reach the medieval Castle of Vezio and Varenna from the mountains.
An exciting trek that you will not forget: breathtaking views of the central part of the lake, where the branches divide.
