Monte Monarco

Distance: 2 km • Time: 1 hour • Easy

The way to Monarco Mount is all ages suitable to explore the Varesine foothills. The route starts at Induno Olona in Montallegro, where you can park your  car in the large square next to a farmhouse. From the piazzale di Montallegro a spacious track starts with an initial flat part that gradually rises and becomes a winding path with a panoramic view of the lakes of the province. The path continues to rise gently to a clearing where you can find benches and grills. From this point the view is even more enchanting and includes the Lake of Varese, the Maggiore and the Lakes of Monate and Comabbio. A last short walk leads to the summit where you find a chapel.
