Sharing reading in a Pollibreria
Walking slowly along ancient mule tracks dotted with small chapels of worship, through chestnut woods and olive groves; enjoying the atmosphere of hamlets on the hills of Lake Como; sharing the pleasure of reading in a unique and magic place; sharing stories and emotions in the silence of nature.

The itinerary starts in Bellano and runs up the hills through olive groves and woods, along ancient mule tracks followed by dwellers when transporting goods to be exchanged or needed to live on.

Typical dry-stone walls along the tracks are still visible representing an important heritage; likewise, ancient chapels of worship bear witness of a path followed by pilgrims and travellers alike, and Leonardo was it when travelling from Milan to Switzerland.

From hamlet to hamlet, from path to path, from wood to wood, we will finally reach the pollibreria, a unique place where we will read some passages from our favourite books, sharing stories, emotions and experiences.

Packed lunch will be in the shade of trees and in the calmness of the hamlet respecting the place and its inhabitants.

Return path runs down through a nice wood, flanking restored terracing where olive trees are now grown.

The itinerary, on mule tracks and paths, is to be considered easy notwithstanding short slightly demanding ascents.
Hiking shoes with good gripping soles, preferably in Vibram material, are required in order to walk safely on mule tracks.
