This is a scenic byway, through some splendid countryside, and offers the chance to compare the two lakes; only 11km separate busy Menaggio on Lake Como from Porlezza, which faces along the beautiful, little-visited eastern arm of Lake Lugano. More enticing reasons to head this way include having a meal at the first Swiss village over the border, Gandria (see p.173), or spending time exploring pacy Lugano (see p.166), 29km from Menaggio. Walks crisscross the mountains hereabouts (see above). Lago di Piano After climbing out of Menaggio on tight switchbacks up to Croce, high on the ridge, the road scoots along the floor of the Val Menaggio, passing Bene Lario and 3km later reaching the small, reedy Lago di Piano, protected as a nature reserve and breeding place for water birds. Drop into the little information office beside the lake, or ask the Menaggio tourist office for the route description of a pleasant, almost flat two-hour walk here that takes in woodlands and a fortified cluster of medieval houses on a peninsula in the lake, known as Castel San Pietro.
