Note the variety of vistas and their shapes
The little viewing areas that jut out slightly into the lake from Passeggiata Lino Gelpi were strategically placed to give you an extraordinary view from each vista. After a few visits, I noticed that they are all different design and shapes - square - oval - round. Much thought given to our aestetic pleasure.

Try to hike up the mountains surrounding the lake, it's a definite must see! The views from up above are divine! Overlooking the lake from over 1000m elevation difference is something spectacular and unforgettable, and very worth every effort!

During our walk behind the Hotel in Griante we noticed a solitary Church on the mountainside which seemed almost impossible to reach by road or by walking. However, we were told later that we could have walked up the mountain to it but I don't think either of us felt fit enough. We were eating too much food and drinking too much wine and it was so hot!
You should just be able to make out the Church on the mountain above the tree tops.
