Whoever visits Valle di Ledro can’t miss the promenade along the shore of Lake Ledro, with its four beaches and its villages (Pieve, Mezzolago and Molina).
To say nothing of the pile-dwelling village and the woods of Pur. The dispensers available all along the route make it the perfect itinerary for walking out one’s dog, truly animal friendly!
The Pile-Dwellings Museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Foletto Museum in Pieve and Ledro Land Art in the pinewood of Pur are not to be missed.
The telephone number for the emergency services is 112.

Walk on the pavement from the Pile-Dwelling Museum to the beach and turn back into the walking path along the lake. After little more than 1 km cross the main road and walk uphill to the viewpoint and then downhill to the village of Mezzolago.
