Description of the itinerary
Varied, enjoyable route connecting Viggiona with Trarego, taking in some characteristic places of great emotional impact such as the Madonnina, offering a generous view of the lake, or the memorial stone for the 9 partisans killed in 1945. The hamlet of Cheglio is worth a visit, as is the Museo Tattile di Scienze Naturali (Tactile Museum of Natural Science).

Notes
The Madonnina path is uneven in places; steep descent from Trarego to Promé.
