Alpe Piazza

Find paradise on the way up to Passo San Marco


Take the road towards Albaredo per San Marco out of Morbegno, driving around 5 km up to an elevation of 1,300 metres. Once here, swing left onto the farm track and follow it until a large car park, about 1 km further on. 

Begin by walking onto the track on the right hand side, which you’ll recognise because of its barrier. It’s signposted from here on and it’ll take roughly an hour to reach Rifugio Alpe Piazza at 1,835 metres above sea level, run by Nadia Cavallo (tel. +39 3384647620).

From the rifugio, you can follow a trail up to Monte Lago at 2,253 metres – this takes about an hour, and it is worth the effort to admire the dizzying views of Lake Como, as well as mountain peaks in all directions (both the Orobic and the Rhaetian sides will be in sight).
