On Saturday morning we will take the train to get to Porto Ceresio: direct from Milan Porta Garibaldi, at a cost of about € 7, departing at 08:32 and arriving in Porto Ceresio at 09:45. Let’s meet in the front part of the train (first wagon)
Return: 17:16 pm Porto Ceresio - Milan Porta Garibaldi (other trains depart at 18:16 and 19:16)
Porto Ceresio is lovely and offers bars and restaurants where we can rest after the excursion.
The paths from Porto Ceresio to Sasso Paradiso:
Arrived at the station we will take the road that goes towards Brusimpiano and we will look for the famous path E1.
In about 2h 30 min we should arrive to the most panoramic point of the itinerary Sasso Paradiso.
Here we will still find traces of the Cadorna defense line. The Cadorna line of defense are bunkers, trenches, fortifications, built
For the return we can avoid taking the same road and follow the Cadorna defense line until it becomes VARIANT 3V, and we will not return to Cuasso al Monte (about 1h). From here we can resume the outward path to the starting point.
The route is not the fastest, but it is certainly not the steepest. There are about Protected content of total altitude difference.
The route is not excessively tiring, and it pays off in beauty once you reach the top.
What to bring: Appropriate and rainproof clothing, hiking/trekking boots, water at least 1 liter, food, backpack. Be aware that there are no shelters in this area.
Trekking shoes are MANDATORY.
