Description

Our tip for the following stage of the ViaValtellina:

  • San Romerio: The sanctuary and mountain hut are located 800 meters above Lake Poschiavo.

On old mule tracks, partly on melioration roads, you can reach Viano after about 1 1/2 hours. Then follows a short ascent to La Dogana (unoccupied border post). Up to the Italian Roncaiola you will discover again and again traces of the former smugglers' paths. From Roncaiola, a partially paved path leads through the middle of the vineyards to Tirano.

The final destination of the Via Valtellina South and Standard Route has been reached. Tirano is also the starting point of the Italian continuation of via Valtellina, because the Via Terrazzementi to Morbegno starts here.

Benvenuto in Italia. Tirano was the starting point of the wine mules: here grows the popular "Veltliner". A tasting of the Veltliner specialties (wines, bresola and cheese) you should definitely treat yourself and take your time to visit the Palazzo Salis.
