Honeymoon in Lake Como, advise please?

Hi, we are getting married in June 2014 & would love to visit Lake Como. Can anyone recommend which part would be best for us? We are planning on staying 4-5 nights & would like to be able to walk to restaurants, cafes, pubs, etc & can you do day trips to visit Milan?

1. Re: Honeymoon in Lake Como, advise please?

Congratulations, Hayley. The mid lake towns/villages are the most scenic: Bellagio, Varenna, Lenno, Menaggio and Tremezzo.

Varenna is the only one which has a train station, the journey from Milan is about an hour, to go to the other towns you will need to take a ferry. I've never stayed in Varenna, but have always thought that it is very pretty.

Bellagio is the busiest town with more restaurants and shops, it's situated on a promontory where the three legs of the lake meet and is very well served by the ferries. It is the most touristy which is what some people want. I know that the day-trippers leave of an evening, but I've stayed there four times and I really do think that it has lost some of its charms, it seems that all its shops cater for the tourist trade now. However, it remains a very attractive and convenient place to stay, particularly for a first visit.

My favourite is Lenno, I've stayed there four times and hope to return next June. It's on the edge of a cove in the lake and because the main road runs above the lake, is so tranquil - maybe too tranquil for some. There are a few restaurants and bars, the Villa Balbianello and gorgeous walks in the hills.

I hope this helps.

Congrats as well hayley r!

The Hotel Metropole enjoys an envious lakeside position not far from the ferry, and it's a lovely hotel.
