Menaggio and surrunding area

Menaggio

Menaggio is an elegant, small village which spreads a very special atmosphere with its historic old part of the town and the romantic lanes. Here you can find good restaurants as well as ethnic Pizzerias. The waterfront-street with little cafés is known as one of the nicest ones around the lake. Centre of the town and meeting-point of the natives is the nice Piazza right next to the yacht-harbour. In Menaggio are exhibitions, concerts and events over the whole year.

Tremezzo

The well-known and idyllic village of Tremezzo is situated between the popular village of Cadenabbia (the place where the famous german post-war chancellor Konrad Adenauer always went on vacation) and the picturesque village of Lenno. It is an optimal starting-point for trips all around Lago di Como and the surrounding area. There are good shipping-line connections during the whole year. The sights and the especially attractive villages are all close together. The gastronomy is very good. There is a good choice of restaurants either right next to the waterfront or also a little bit higher with local and international cuisine.
There is a leisurely and pleasant walk from Colonno to Cadenabbia di Griante to discover villas and gardens, Roman findings, wonderful examples of architecture, ancient villages and charming natural views. It is possible to move amongst municipalities by using Lake Como's navigation public transport and bus lines.

Lenno

The quaint village of Lenno neighbours the well-known towns Tremezzo und Cadenabbia (Konrad Adenauer’s regular holiday destination). The area is the ideal starting point for trips around Lake Como and the surrounding region. The famous Villa del Balbianello on the peninsular, reached by ferry from Sala Comacina, is really worth a visit. There are good ferry connections all year round. Particularly worth a visit is the church of Santo Stefano in the village and above the village the old Cistercian monastery "Abbazia dell'Aquafredda". The historic sights and particularly attractive towns are not far away. The local cuisine is particularly good. In restaurants direct on the lake and further a field is an excellent selection of international and traditional cookery. Supermarkets and grocery stores can be found in Lenno.
