The village itself is quiet and picturesque with many public parks and beautiful views. When you reach Piazza San Rocco, take the road marked with San Martino blue sign.
You are now at Carsolina, a very old cluster of Griante. At the end of this alley you find yourself on the road which takes you both to San Martino and Rogaro. If you decide to go back to the lake, turn right, otherwise, carry on straight until you reach the path to San Martino.
You’ll find it at your right; a few steps down lead you to a small bridge and there you start your way up through fields and woods. Along the path, you’ll see some tiny chapels with mosaics depicting the Misteries of the Rosary.
Half the way up you’ll find the Alpini’s Chapel dedicated to Saint Charles and, from there on, no more steps! Be sure to wear proper shoes and to take with you some drinks or something to eat because you will not find refreshments at San Martino.
From that point you’ll enjoy one of the most beautiful views of lake Como. (aprox.1 h.).
It is not advisable to take the path that leads to Pilone because a good piece of it is partially disrupted!
