Lake Como is located in an ideal area surrounded by protecting mountains which create a particularly mild climate and where southern and northern Europe meet and exchange culture. Well known all over the world for its charm and incomparable beauty, for its light pastels and water colors, Lake Como is an impressionism painting made by nature. Breath taking landscapes that have captured the hearts of more than a hundred years of “connoisseur” tourists coming from all over the world. The founder of the second oldest Italian Golf Club (1906) in Menaggio was English and King Edward VIII chose the lake for his honeymoon. Winston Churchill often summered on the shores of the lake. In the sixties the German chancellor Adenauer elected Lake Como as his favourite place for holidays. To this day the area is still loved by entrepreneurs, businessmen, writers, fashion designers, sportsmen, actors and movie directors including George Lucas, George Clooney, Donatella Versace, Madonna and Sting...
This is all because Lake Como offers its beauty with discretion and elegance, without confusion and with a magical atmosphere that invites one to relax and meditate. For these characteristics alone it becomes more appreciated, by more people, every day.
Lake Como offers a lot to see and explore. Menaggio is ideally located to visit both the central and south lake area, but also the northern part which has a lot to offer as well. Bellagio and Varenna, two beautiful and famous villages of the central lake area. Tremezzo with the botanical garden of Villa Carlotta, Lenno with the enchanting Villa Balbianello, the "Isola Comacina", the unique island of Lake Como, George Clooney's villa and Como itself. Going North, Dongo, with its lively market on Thursday and Gravedona with its castle and lake promenade and so on. Menaggio is approximately 1 hr. 40 minutes from St. Moritz and 35 minutes from Lugano in Switzerland. Other Northern Italian cities of culture including Bergamo (2 hours), Verona (2.75 hours) and Venice (3.5 hours) can be managed as day trips. Superb shopping can be done in Como (50 minutes) or Milan (1.5 hours).
Local markets are hosted in different villages on different days. Summer evening market in Menaggio on Friday.
