Great vacation area

Great vacation spot! Nice shopping, variety of stores. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, covering all price ranges. Hotels with lake views. Plenty of walking areas. Can take the ferry to other towns along the lake.

Charming place
Jul 2020 • Couples
From our apartment in Acquaseria we took the beautiful walk along the lake to Menaggio (3.5 km). In the charming town of Menaggio we visited some nice shops, went to the tourist office and sat on a terrace overlooking the lake where we saw the Ferry arrive and depart. We really like that Menaggio is so close to Acquaseria.

Charming Town
Oct 2019 • Couples
Menaggio is a very charming town in the Lake Como area of Italy. I loved walking around town and towards the castle. Beautiful streets and pee a boo views of the main church in town. Loved the small simple Romanesque church I saw as we walked. This town is easy to get to from Varenna and Bellagio. The views from the ferry are gorgeous.
And lots of good restaurants.

Fabulous place to stay.
Oct 2019
The ferry and the water taxi and buses stop here so it is easy to get to. Lots of restaurants and little shops around the main Garibaldi Square and it is a great place to start walking up into the hills. There is even a hostel. a lovely path goes along side the lake so it a great place to stroll during the daytime with an ice cream or in the evening to walk off a meal

Put this on your bucket list

Menaggio is a perfect place to base yourself in Lake Como. Less expensive than Bellagio to stay and eat and you can catch the ferry to all other towns easily. Ferry seems to leave to go to Bellagio and Vereena every 15 minutes. Make sure you hire a private boat to tour the lake. Your private guide will show you all the beautiful homes including George Clooney's house. If you can, ensure your accommodation gives you a view of the Lake as it is truly a beautiful way to wake up in the morning.

A lovely town with great alleys and walks. Beutifull lake walks with pleasure craft and ferries. Very loud when school turns out.

A Beautiful Town!
Aug 2019
We stayed a youth hostel in this town for four nights and it was honestly an amazing experience! The town itself is very nice, with the waterfront and historic buildings. There was a festival happening for two of the nights we were there so we were able to enjoy some interesting food and music and check out local artisans. Menaggio is also on the Trombetta Express route, a small tourist train/shuttle that goes between Menaggio and Lenno. It's a great starting place for visiting Varenna, Belaggio and other surrounding towns.

Very charming old town but it does have a lot of tourists. Still, it’s beautiful and scenic with the blue water, sweeping green hills and vibrant sky. The summer flowers and warmly painted building give this area its charm. It’s no wonder why people decorate their homes with scenic painting from here.

Georgeous village on the Western Shore of the Lake
Sep 2019
The village is some distance away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist center of Como, however it is a beautiful village with great restaurants and obviously fabulous bars and Gelateria's.

Favorite ferry stop on Lake Como
Aug 2019 • Couples
After visiting Bellagio by ferry we decided to stop and have lunch in Menaggio. We really enjoyed the smaller city, the shops were interesting, the prices at the restaurants were more reasonable. I definitely would recommend a ferry ride over to check out the town. We did decide that we purchased some Groceries at a market in town and to our surprise the selection of meats, cheeses and wines were more reasonable. Wish I could remember the name, but we just put in grocery store in maps and we walked straight to it.
