Panoramic hiking route from Cannobio via St. Agata and Marcalone Alp to Monte Giove (1298m). There are great views along the way and especially at the summit.
Distance 14.4 km
Very nice route with many great viewpoints, starting in Cannobio near the suspension bridge, over St. Agata (on the way you have some nice views of Lake Maggiore) to the beautifully situated Marcalone Alp. Here you can get great cappuccinos and excellent tiramisu! The path leads on partly wide and at times quite narrow paths (short also very steep and secured with wire ropes) to the summit. There you have a great panoramic view over the Lago Maggiore. Descent via Biessen back to St. Agata Cannobio.
The suspension bridge with countless love castles is worth seeing, the church square in St. Agata offers a beautiful view and there is a street café. The Marcalone Alp is beautifully situated above the lake where you can enjoy a cappuccino and extremely delicious tiramisu. A rest is worthwhile in any case! The summit itself also offers a great view.
Safety informationFor a short time, a narrow and steep path is secured with ropes. Good shoes are a must here. However, you can find another, easier way around this section.
