Pianello Lario with its many villages/districts is located immediately south of Musso.The pebble beach with good Surf/sailing possibilities is in the district of Calozzo.
We recommend a hike to the Alp Nalcim [1201 m] where you follow the "Via dei Monti Lariani ', a beautiful hiking path around Lake Como.
Musso and Pianello Lario, due to a new bypass tunnel are the only towns on the lake with no through traffic.They present themselves pleasantly quiet and pristine, interspersed with lots of green, partly in a rural environment.
The new, pretty promenade (for pedestrians only) invites you to stroll between the two places.
Worth seeing: Housed in a former spinning mill building, is the "Museo della Barca Lariana" Lariana Ship Museum in Via Statale 139, it has a collection of old ships and barges [Lucie] and describes the maritime history of Lake Como.
Pianello has some good restaurants and small shops.For bulk purchases go to Dongo or Menaggi, about (4 km).
