Starting from the historical center of Cernobbio, it is possible to reach the top of Mount Bisbino, where there is a Sanctuary dedicated to the Blessed Virgin, a refreshment and a small Museum of local history (open occasionally). It is recommended to check the actual opening both of the Sanctuary and the refreshment; you can find the references in the information page about the @Monte Bisbino. The route is marked by numerous points of historical and artistic interest and allows you to enjoy wonderful views of Lake Como.
For those who prefer a shorter walk with a smaller difference in height, it is also possible to reach by car the hamlet of Rovenna, parking near the cemetery and taking the path which starts at the beginning of Via Segantini (directions for Scarone/Monte Bisbino).
We indicate the complete stages of the route, considering the departure from the city center:
Historic Center of Cernobbio: it is possible to walk along the "Riva" - the famous square on the town lake - and admire several points of interest, such as the recently restored Fountain and the Church of San Vincenzo;
Oratory of the Beata Vergine delle Grazie: it is a pretty little church located at the intersection of the historic "Via Regina" and Via Montegrappa, right in front of Piazza Belinzaghi, reachable through the alleys of the center;
Rovenna: continuing along Via Monte Grappa, then Via Plinio and Via Monte Santo, you reach Rovenna, a hamlet of Cernobbio located in an elevated position with respect to the Old Town and from which you can admire beautiful views;;
Monte Bisbino: from Rovenna you can take a beautiful mule track that, in about 2 hours and 30 minutes, leads to the Sanctuary of the Beata Vergine del Bisbino, where you could also eat at the small refuge and, if lucky, visit the small museum of local history.
