Vercana comprises different hamlets dotted along the River Livo on the slopes of Pizzo Sasso Canale. The panoramic view from Vercana is exceptional, overlooking the lake and also the Pian di Spagna as well as the alps to the north and Monte Legnone to the east.
Vercana was originally an old fishing village and to date, this is still a prominent business in the nearby harbour of Domaso which you can reach via a 2km long footpath from Vercana. Domaso has plenty of restaurants and shops to potter around.
If you enjoy the outdoors then Vercana is and excellent location for starting your nature walks or for mountain biking.
