There are many ideal spots for diving, some of them can only be reached by boat such as Punta Spargivento in Bellagio, the wall of Villa Pliniana in Torno and Onno with its seahorses, but there are other destinations that are naturally more popular than others substantially for three reasons: the beauty and uniqueness of the seabed, the presence of infrastructures and equipment, as well as the reachability of the diving point. For example, we could mention the fantastic Baia di Piona in Colico (the dome and the Comballo Luisin, the Malpensata), Riva di Gittana with its wreck (Autobotte), Mandello del Lario and Lierna with its overhanging walls, Malgrate and much more. with fantastic historical wrecks to be admired and excited. Other points offer, more specifically, equipment such as lanyards (ropes that mark the route) or platforms for carrying out the exercises of the courses, such as RapaNui in Loc. Moregge (LC).
