Dromaè is among the most beautiful spots in Valle di Ledro, particularly late in the Spring. Green meadows, unparalleled views over the Lake, wild flowers and historical traces  make for a spectacular walk.

Pink peonies and white daffodils fill up the slopes of Dromaè from May to early June. Peonies grow along the botanical path, whereas daffodils are to be found in the meadows above the casinei, little huts used by the people of Mezzolago during the summer. Besides these flowers, there are also mountain orchids which are more of a challenge to spot.

The belvedere in Dromaè is an exceptional viewpoint over Valle di Ledro. On a clear day, the eye can roam from the Adamello group to Lake Garda, from Tremalzo to Monte Corno. The trenches and tunnels found along the way date back to the First World War, when Valle di Ledro was at the front between Austria-Hungary and the Kingdom of Italy.

Author’s recommendation

The Sentiero austroungarico starts from the belvedere and leads to the casinei di Dromaè. Along the path are several huts and trenches where the Austrian soldiers spent the war years. It is a nice alternative to the main road.
