Poschiavo - San Romerio - Viano
Show all 5 images
At high altitudes, the air in Valposchiavo is often of dazzling clarity on sunny days. It is the light of the south that makes the landscape glow. A wonderful setting to experience this serene brightness is Alp San Romerio. It is located on a cliff-like promontory high above Lago di Poschiavo. Wooden benches directly on the abyss invite you to take a break with a view; in the neighbouring Ristoro you can fortify yourself with food and drinks.
This enchanting place can be reached on a longer hike. The ascent is initially easy, then visibly steep and leads mostly through spruce and larch forests. At the end of the mountain forest, the view suddenly opens up to the lower Valposchiavo and the neighbouring Valtellina. You can enjoy a lot of views during the mostly gentle descent to the mountain village of Viano, which was an important scene for the smuggling of sugar, coffee and tobacco into Italy until the 1970s.
