In the past it was a network of mule tracks, connecting all the countries of the LarianTriangle (the large rocky outcrop that divides the branches of Lake Como and Lecco),allowing shepherds, travelers and traders to cross the length and off the land. Today is a historic route that provides insight often unknown aspects of the lake and its region.
The Ancient Royal Road (or Antica via Regina) is a pedestrian, or bicycle, some thirtykilometers (the path can be easily split) offering an unparalleled view of Lake while allowing for a relaxing walk away from traffic .
The route is on pavement and trails laid with local stone, and through small villages now in upstream now in the valley, highlighting two styles of life: that of the fishermen and mountain pastures. There remain a number of finds such as stone bridges, stone walls, shrines, taverns with signs, faded by time.
