|Welcome to Brianza!
These event will be held in the Brianza area, a few miles north of Milan, almost in the Lecco province, in the park of the Curone valley, near the wonderful village of montevecchia.
The event will be held in a tipical local restaurant: Il tetto brianzolo. After the lunch for whoever would love to compete, me and Kazuma will hide some interesting quiz-caches, there will be some new geo-prizes for the FTF.
If you like, on saturday 3 night you can meet us at Pub Ritrovo in Montevecchia (appointement at 19:00 on provided waypoint), to drink a beer and taste their cheese and ham plates. If the weather will be fine we can go to search Montevecchia Sentiero Olivo looking to night cities lights.
For whoever is interested, there are many caches in the area, or you can visit Milan (we are very close to the Tangenziale Est higway around the city) or other cities like Lecco, Bergamo or Como.
For the lovers of the mountains, in Lecco there are a lot of trails, from the easy one, good for all the family, to the wondeful, but really hard, "direttissima", or, eventually, to all the alpine trails on the "Resegone" mountain or on the "Guglie of the Grigna" (not jet found cache on the top).
We know the area very well and we will pleased and happy to provide you any suggestion.
As I was saying, the location is easy to reach from the end of the "Tangenziale Est highway" (you get there from the Higways A1 or A4). If any of you is considering to come by motorcycle, let us know where are you coming from, so we can suggest some nice alternative roads (the closest "Valsassina" valley is like heaven for bikers).
Attention: if you stay on Montevecchia, restaurant can't be reached directly (closed road) go to Missaglia and than climb to Perego (see picture)
