Since Restonica Valley (from Corte) it is better to have a vehicle to get to the terminus of the valley which is 16 Kms. Then you can leave your car at the parking "Grotelle" (alt. 1370 m) (paid parking from 1 June to 30 September: € 5 for a car and 2 € for a motorcycle) to start your hike to the lakes : it takes about 1 hour 15 minutes to reach the first lake (Lake MELO 1711 m alt.) after crossing a little steep slabs arranged ladders and chains. Follow to the right bank of the lake and then ascend to the second lake (Lake Capitello alt. 1,930 m) (½ hour longer) This path is marked in yellow. Regarding the Valley, a shuttle is in place from July 16 to August 15.

    Prévoyez de monter jusqu'en haut (bergeries de Grotelle ) avant d'entamer votre ascension. il faut savoir que le parking est payant (6€). Belle vue.
