    We 'found' Porlezza whilst searching for buses to Lugano. Staying in Lake Como, we took the ferry across to Mennagio from Bellagio and the bus from the terminus off Via Roma in Mennagio. The journey to Lugano was full of beautiful views the whole way, which took an hour and cost €27 for 2 people.
    Porlezza is along the way on the journey at the beginning of Lake Lugano and is a typical Italian village. Lots of lovely shops and cafes and a small beach. It has many camping sites nearby and would make a perfect family holiday. Off the main road are pretty cobbled streets where you can have a coffee/ patisserie etc. Definitely an unexpected treat of a place and easy to get to on the C12 bus .

    On our trip we saw the huge waterfall from afar. Beautiful! We wanted to stop but no parking spots available. From a distance nice view anyway. What a nice surprise!

    We where surprised how man locals visited the market. Lots of stuff is certainly not fot the tourist. Also it was already the beginning of November i reckon that not all stalls where presented. Very good the cheese stall. Also the vegetables, fruits and nuts. Season for “castanja” Marroni. If you like honey and produces out of it there where two stalls. Obviously also stalls with clothes children clothes, handbags and so. The market ist quiet big. On a cloudy day in November worth a visit

    You wouldn't expect this magnificence and abundance of works of art in the church of a rather small town.

    If you are in Porlezza for the day I’d highly recommend renting an electric bike from this company. It’s only around €27 for half a day and that long enough to do an amazing ride - along the site of an old railway track - to the beautiful lake side town of Menaggio, where you can enjoy a spot of lunch and a glass of wine before heading back to Porlezza . Most of the ride is along easy to use cycle tracks in breathtakingly beautiful countryside and the e-bike makes it very easy indeed! Try it - you’ll love it!

    Porlezza is no exciting place at all. It does however offer a fantastic view over the Italian part of Lake Lugano.
    Bar Modulus is close to the center of the end of the lake and has a modest terrace and menu. The piadini were OK, prices were so too.
