Menaggio is a short trip across the Lake from Bellagio and Varenna which in my view are much more scenic villages/towns with a lot more for the tourist to see and do on a day trip. The ferry area along the harbour side is very pretty and the views over the Lake quite spectacular. However, unlike Bellagio and Varenna, there... More

Lake Como is one of the most beautiful places in Italy, well worth a visit and if you do visit, then bring either your own car, or hire a car to travel around as the lake is huge with lots of small and interesting towns along the way.

We were going to the Lake Como area and a friend recommended Menaggio. It was a great suggestion. From there we took ferries to other small towns and enjoyed beautiful scenery the entire trips. There were several delicious restaurants, somewhat expensive, but reasonable for the venue. The weather was gorgeous while we were there, early June, and not yet overrun... More

Menaggio is a lovely town to visit on Lake Como, a big square with many restaurants and shops, a promenade with plenty of seats and shade.sit bu the lake front and watch the boats come and go.

The Hydrofoil brings you quickly across the lake to Menaggio which is a nice central location to visit several town on Lake Como. From Menaggio you can see Varenna (train station) and Bellagio (lots of shopping and restaurants) Lenno, a short central lake ferry ride, is a great place to begin a hike along the Greenway. The trail is well... More

Our family of four enjoyed one week in Menaggio. After researching the lakeside towns, I'm very happy that we chose Menaggio. The location was perfect for our small children. From the flat layout (vs. Bellagio or Varenna) to the Kinderpark and close, convenient restaurants and shops to the Lido (both private and public), it was a wonderful destination. We were... More
