Check-in in Cremeno, via Rocco, 3
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 Provinciale e via Combi (near U2 supermarket), from where you should take the via ingegnere Combi, turn immediately to the right to via XXV Aprile. The house is located on the main square of the village in front of the bar Roma. The entrance door is the next to the post office.
There are many free public parking lots on the square and a bit up the street near the church. There is also a small public parking in front of the entrance.
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 (3 minutes walk).
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 ski 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.
