VALTELLINA TRAIL – FORT OF FUENTES – ABBACY OF PIONA
This is an outing suited to all abilities following the Valtellina Trail. Setting out from our own Bed & Bike, the route follows the course of the River Adda along the Valtellina Trail to Lake Como. Here the ruins of the 16th Spanish military settlement of the Fort of Fuentes can be visited, as well as the nearby Fort of Montecchio, dating from World War I, preserved intact with its original weapons.
Back on the Valtellina Trail the route leads along the lakefront at Colico, with a stop-off for a well-deserved ice-cream on the shores of Lake Como!
From here the outing can be extended for another few kilometres as far as the magnificent Piona Abbey, founded in the 7th century and still in use today. Then home, after a short break to take a few snapshots.
