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.
