What to do and see in Blevio
Walking in the centre, between pedestrian paths and parks, you could come across colorful works of art, created by the project "Blevio mosaic park”.
Inaugurated by the municipality in 2016, it involved academies, art high schools and professional schools in the creation of mosaic works in the public places of the city, embellishing them.
An excursion along its paths leads to Nairola stone (at an altitude of 750m), an erratic boulder whose extravagant shape has always intrigued the inhabitants of the surroundings who have built stories and legends on its origin.
Remaining in the surroundings, some itineraries will lead you to the discovery of other erratic boulders, such as the Pendula Stone of Torno and the Stone of the Wolf. With your back to the Como village, we recommend an excursion on the path of Tavernerio valley towards Monte Boletto (1,238m).
Ride the waves on Lake Como
Returning to the shore of the lake, to give a little adrenaline to the hot summer days, you will find Blevio Wakeboarding Lake Como, a center equipped for the practice of water ski, of the wakeboarding he was born in wakesurfing.
