Check-in in Cremeno, via Lazzaretto
Hi! If you are seeing this page, you have already booked our apartment in Cremeno. Here you will find some information that might be useful for your arrival and stay.
How to reach the apartment
If you come from Milan, follow S36 road. When you will be passing Lecco (after a long tunnel), take the exit to Valsassina and follow the street. When you reach a huge roundabout in Ballabio continue towards Valsassina to the Colli di Balisio, where you will find a Brico Center (on the left). At this point at the roundabout you can decide to continue towards the valley and go through the village of Barzio, or follow the road to the right that passes through Maggio. In both cases, you will arrive to the cross of via Probiciale e via Combi (near U2 supermarket), from where you should take the via ingegnere Combi, turn immediately to the right to via XXV Aprile. Once you arrive to the central square with Bar Roma, continue straight for 100m on via Rocco and you will see in front of you a condominium with pink balconies. That is the house where you stay!
There is free public parking on the left and on the right of the house. The ones on the left (between the house and the church) are the most convenient. Usually, there are always some free parking places. In case you prefer, we also have an underground garage.
By public transport
It is not easy to move in Valsassina by public transport, however it is possible. Barzio is connected to Lecco by bus n.D35. It goes every 30-60 min, but doesn’t go at night. From Lecco you can easily move by trains and boats.
There are websites https://www.leccotrasporti.it/ and https://lineelecco.it/ where you can check the exact schedule, but they are pretty hard to navigate. We would recommend using the Moovit app to control the schedule. You can buy tickets on board of some buses or in tobacco shops (tabaccheria). On board, the price is always higher. Always check the schedule in advance!
Check our post about the public transport in the area to know more!
The nearest bus stop is called “Cremeno – Clubino”. It s in front of the bar “La Stube” where they serve excellent beers by the way 😉
From Barzio you can take a cable car to go to Piani di Bobbio. The schedule changes depending on the season, so always check it, but usually it is open from 8.30 till 17.00 with a lunch break. The cost is 10 euro in one direction and 15 euro in both directions. Discounts for kids. You can reach the Cable car by foot (30 minutes), by car (note that on weekends the parking gets full very early), and by a free shuttle bus on weekends that stops in front of La Stube bar.
In winter season it is better to buy the cable car tickets and ski passes online in advance, because there can be huge lines in the morning. Also there is a discount for those who buy ski passes 24h in advance.
There is another cable car nearby that connects Moggio and Piani d’Artavaggio. It is a well a very nice area both in summer and winter! There are only a couple of slopes, but it can be nice for beginners and families with kids. It is also very nice for snowshoeing! You can reach Moggio by foot (about 20min uphill), by bus or by car.
Usually, we always aim to meet our guests personally. However, it is not always possible for various reasons. In case if we cannot be there, we will leave you detailed instructions on how to reach the apartment.
