Val  Di  Mello

italianlakes.com approvalVal di Mello is a magnificently located valley with extremely beautiful scenery.  The valley is found by taking the Val Masino exit off the main road to Sondrio which is in the Valtellina.  The road to Sondrio starts from Colico, which is on the east shore of Lake Como.

Coming from Lake Como, the exit comes directly on the left just past a steel bridge.   After exiting the highway, follow the signs to Val Masino.   Once you arrive in the small town of San Martino, park in the main parking lot there.  You will have to pay a few euros for the parking.  From the parking lot, you can either start your hike from there up to the Val di Mello, or for a couple of euros you can take a small van to the start of the trail head.  It is about a 20 minute walk from the parking lot to the trail head.

The hike along the valley floor is an easy walk with only a little elevation change.  The path follows a crystal clear mountain river.

Along the way there are several trattoria's serving polenta and pizzocheri which are typical dishes of the region.

The valley walls are well known by climbers who find a vast number of challenging routes.
