Full description
On this walking tour, you will learn about the history of Lecco and also taste typical local products as you go. The tour starts from Piazza Cermenati, the square that opens onto the lakefront at the foot of the steps leading to the Basilica of San Nicolò and the bell tower that towers above Lecco. This square was once the port of medieval Lecco, the fortified village.

On the corner between Piazza Cermenati and Piazza XX Settembre stands the Palazzo delle Paure which houses the art gallery and the Lecchese Alpinistic Observatory. From this square, there are streets and alleys that lead you to the church of Santa Marta, to the Teatro della Società with the inevitable monument to Garibaldi, the hero of the two worlds, and to the monument to Alessandro Manzoni, the writer who made Lecco famous all over the world for I Promessi Sposi. Visit the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Victory, easily visible thanks to the white-black-white appearance of the structure. Once out of the church, continue along the road that leads to the Azzone Visconti bridge, commissioned by Azzone Visconti in 1336. From here you can admire the Visconti Island from above, which is located in the middle of the river Adda.

On this tour, you will be delighted by tastings of local products such as cheese, oil, wine and salami. Learn more about the delicious foods that characterize the world of Lecco and Lombardy.
