Set on a sunny slope of Mt Muggio, 730 m above sea level, Vendrogno is the capital of the Muggiasca Valley, and its fractions offer beautiful places to stay and wonderful views, enjoying a mild climate all year round.
Vendrogno can be reached going up "That branch of the lake of Como, which extends towards the south ..." moving from Lecco to Colico along superstrada 36 (no toll highway) or the provincial road along the lake.
In Bellano turn right onto provincial road 66, which leads to Vendrogno with an 8 km drive.
Otherwise you can reach it passing through Valsassina: in Taceno, nearby Pizzeria "Bellano", turn right and you will soon reach the fraction of Comasira, then the main town. Or, once again going through Valsassina, in Casargo follow direction Indovero-Narro, then turn left reaching the town passing through the fractions of Mornico and Sanico.
Muggiasca offers anyone the opportunity for small hikes through woods and meadows, surrounded by a beautiful natural setting.
