You can reach and visit the Lake Center (Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio) by boats and hydrofoils, starting directly from the Colico pier.
Near the village of Bellano, on the Lecco branch of Lake Como, there is a spectacular natural gorge that can be explored thanks to suspended walkways fixed to one of the rock walls of the canyon.
It is one of the most charming points of interest in the area, thanks to the history of the church and the natural beauty of the surroundings. There are numerous frescoes and painting cycles that deserve to be admired. Inside the cloister, there is a perfectly preserved fresco from the 15th century depicting the apparition of Christ to the Madonna. Open all year round. Distance from the hotel: 8km.
It is a military construction (1600) located on the hill of Montecchio or Monteggiolo in the alluvial plain formerly called Pian di Colico. The fort extends over several levels and has an elongated shape with horn-shaped works at different ends. When active, the fort could accommodate over 300 armed men. Distance from the hotel: 3km.
The only Italian fortress, Forte di Montecchio Nord, was built between 1911 and 1914, during the time of the Great War, and served as a strategic military point for controlling the surrounding areas. Since 2009, it has housed the Museum of the White War, where visitors can admire all the weapons that were prepared, such as the four large cannons with a range of 14 kilometers. The museum spans two levels connected by an evocative curved gallery. Distance from the hotel: 1.5 km.
The cycling path along the Adda River connects Colico to Bormio along a 114 km route. The trail starts from the town center, following the lakeside, and then ventures into the splendid wildlife reserve of Pian di Spagna. Info: sentiero.valtellina.it / distance from the hotel: 900 m.
