Description

On the Via Bregaglia you can always choose which direction to take and who how long you want to walk. The Via Bregaglia leads through small villages: the paths connecting them are partly old roads, partly pretty diversified hiking trails. Along the way, museums in Stampa but also in Vicosoprano, invite you to visit them, there are also numerous places to stop for refreshments. Once in Chiavenna, let yourself be spoilt by the Italian hospitality and atmosphere, relax on the piazza and enjoy a well-deserved cappuccino or an aperitif. By the way, with the postbus line 4 which drives through the valley, the hike can be interrupted or shortened at any time.
