  • Lovely walk on a warm day, started early (otherwise too hot) and went up the somewhat more difficult way, which was really nice. After some time at the lake we went back the other way, with a little more vegetation. Would have loved to continue to Lac de Capitello, but wasn't doable with the kids and the warm weather.
  • Easy hike and nice views all along. I think it took me an hour. Very windy at the lake and cold. Fortunately I took an extra layer with me. I highly recommend waterproof shoes since the path includes walking through streams. When I continued to Capitello there was a lot of snow and the lake was frozen but so beautiful. Parking in May was 6€ for car, 3€ for motorcycle
