Sitting at one of the mountain tops, Monte Galbiga, after climbing on MTB from Argegno, its worth the effort! Spectacular view, honest italian rural food and nice people. I tried un tagliere with excellent local cheeses, prosciutto and salami. Enough for me! Excellent for hiking.

Although Rifugio Venini is located not so far from lake of Como, it feels there like in the middle of Alps. The food was very good for what you can expect of a mountain place. Worth trying is the local polenta with cheese.
