Long and strenuous via ferrata route with unknown climbs and great views

This via ferrata requires fitness and climbing experience. The via ferrata, which has been awarded difficulty level A/B and is therefore relatively easy and partially secured, offers wonderful views over the surrounding mountains and a view as far as Lake Como. The round tour passes a mountain ridge and offers glimpses of other via ferratas in the area. We can stop at the Rifugio Elisa and see other rifugios in the distance that are not on our way. So we can already plan the climbing tour for the next day. The views compensate for the large amount of time we put into this via ferrata.
