Menaggio and surrounding area


Menaggio is an elegant town with a historic old town and romantic alleys, situated on Lake Como and on the mountain. Here you can find fine restaurants and quaint pizzerias without a long search. The town has a beautiful lakeside promenade on Lago di Como with small cafés, inviting you to stroll and linger. The piazza at the fishing harbour is considered the centre of social life and is the meeting place for locals. Menaggio offers vernissages, concerts and festivals all year round.

There is a lido with two pools, beach volleyball court, playground, mini golf course, restaurant, beach bar and evening events in summer.

The town has an ideal location near the centre of Lake Como (Menaggio is one of the corners of the Golden Triangle Menaggio-Bellagio-Varenna). The pier for hydrofoils and ferries has connections to many places around Lake Como (regular connections to Como, Bellagio and Varenna).

Tremezzo was an independent municipality until 2014 and has since been part of the municipality of Tremezzina following a merger. Konrad Adenauer had his permanent holiday residence here.

Lenno was a small community and has a sunny bay. It was merged with Tremezzo and Mezzegra in 2014 to form the municipality of Tremezzina. Villa del Balbianello, built there, has unique landscape and villa architecture and is always worth a visit. Many cafés, gelaterias and restaurants can be found in the bay of Lenno on Lake Como.

The church of Santo Stefano is right in the town and the Cistercian monastery of Santa Maria dell’Acquafredda towers above the town.


The Vergine del Soccorso Chapel is in Ossuccio.

Island "Isola Comacina"

Isola Comacina is hilly and the only island of Lake Como. It lies opposite Sala Comacina and Ossuccio. The island offers beautiful walks and a kiosk for refreshments.

The island is 500 metres long and 120 metres wide and has an eventful historical past. For example, you will find valuable mosaics from the Roman period.

A highlight is the Locanda dell’Isola: a popular restaurant where, according to ancient custom, a ceremony is held after every meal to banish the bishop’s curse, which was pronounced on the island in the 12th century.
