The Pettenasco walk is dedicated to Peter Benson, creator and founder of Amnesty International in 1961.
It has been finished few years ago and is a gem of the touristic Pettenasco.
Less crowded than Orta but similar as regards charm and peace.
A relaxing lake view walk close to the water along the path starting from the Hotel Approdo for about 1 km (or vice versa).
Alongside the path there are four little free beaches with a wonderful view, benches to relax and read.
In the central part of the path, there is the docking of the public navigation on Lake Orta (Pettenasco stop).
At the end there is the charming mouth of the Pescone river. This creek originates in the Falde del Mottarone.
From the Hotel Giardinetto it is possible to reach the path with a short walk on the state road until the Hotel Riviera.
It is ideal also for a jogging far away from the smog and immersed into an unique environment.
Round trip about 3 km.
