Menaggio Holidays

Halfway along the western shores of Lake Como, Mennagio is a popular choice for a holiday in the Italian Lakes.

To the north of the lake above Tremezzo and Cadenabbia and looking across to Bellagio. One of the main towns on the lake Menaggio has a large pretty piazza with many gelaterias, shops and cafés as well as a very picturesque lakeside promenade.

Halfway along the western shores of Lake Como, a holiday in Menaggio offers a very popular Italian Lakes getaway. Established by the Romans as a strategic settlement on the Via Regina road, it was fortified in medieval times with walls, towers and castles and again in the Great War and WWII. Remains from all these periods can be seen around town. The fascinating upper town has narrow medieval alleys, steps and frescos, whilst lower down you will find 19th century alpine style buildings, the harbour and a picturesque lakeside promenade lined with shady trees, flowers and well-kept villas.

Activity Information

Things to do in Mennagio

As well as soaking up the atmosphere with a cappuccino on the pretty Piazza Garibaldi, you can wander along the prom, through the gardens and up and down streets encountering lovely little churches like 17th century San Stefano, San Carlo and San Giusto along the way. The “plucky” amongst you will appreciate the Managgio Guitar Festival, and for “teetime” there is a nearby 18-hole golf course. There is good hiking above on Monte Grone, whilst Lake Como offers all sorts of boat hire choices including sailing boats, skiffs and power boats with skis, and there are ferries to Bellagio and Varenna.

Walking

Popular walks

A Historical Walk | Easy | Approx 1 hr |
Starting Piazza Garibaldi, this is an interesting and historical walk around and above Menaggio. A perfect way to see local churches, frescos, sculptures and old castle remains.

Combine your stay on Lake Como with our mountain resort of Champoluc, set in the heart of the Italian Monte Rosa Mountains.

You can combine Menaggio with any resort on Lake Maggiore. Fly to Bergamo and combine Menaggioo with Lake Iseo, or with some resorts on Lake Garda such as Gardone Riviera.
