Dependence Del Parco
#16 Explore Lago del Piano

Discover this small lake nestled in a 176-hectare protected nature reserve halfway between Lake Como and Lake Lugano.

Once you have parked your car, continue on foot along the path that winds around the lake.

You will admire the local flora and fauna, the water lilies, the reed thicket and the grove.

Coots, mallards, moorhens and reed warblers nest in the marsh vegetation; in autumn and spring we can see many different migratory species, including kingfishers. You can also observe them from the small, characteristic wooden jetty that you will encounter on your way.

Alternatively, you can also reach Lago del Piano by bicycle directly from ARIA Retreat & SPA.
