From Cernobbio, by car, one has to drive along the SS583 in the direction of Torno, arriving as far as Faggeto Lario and following the sign on the right towards Molina, Lemna and Palanzo. Passing the village of Lemna, you continue on the Provincial Road and must turn right here for the Church and St. George’s Square; parking is also possible on the street.

If you want to travel by bus from La Corte di Zizi, take the city bus to Como(C10), changing at the Sant’Agostino station(C31), and get off at the stop near Piazza S. Giorgio.

From the San Giorgio restaurant, we follow the Signs for Alpe di Lemna and take the cobblestone path to the left; after a short stretch we pass by a washhouse and an avello boulder of Bigogno, unique in the Faggeto area.

We arrive to Bigogno, here we can visit the Sasso Church for a loop tour.
We follow the sign for Alpe di Lemna, placed on the right, on the wall of a house, past the hamlet and We continue on an uphill but undemanding mule track through beech forests, arriving at the ford of a stream.

Continuing uphill we come to a fork in the road, we are finally close to Alpe di Lemna; it is possible to go either left or straight ahead.
We go left, pass by a beautiful red house, and after two hairpin bends we arrive to the wide meadows Where this particular Farmhouse is located. One can stop here for a restorative break.

We go further to the left, reaching some meadows on which we stop for our lunch break.

Further on, for those willing to commit to an additional 200 meters of elevation gain, we arrive at Bocchetta di Lemna, where there is a junction with the Dorsale Monti Lariani trail that descends from the Baite di Brunate.
