The Lombardy region
Colico is a comune in the province of Lecco, Lombardy, Italy. It is situated on the northern arm of Lake Como, where the river Adda enters the lake. Colico is the most important town in the northern part of Lake Como, which is often identified as its Colico branch.
Colico is a local transport hub, with boats to Como and Lecco, as well as trains and roads to Milan (via the eastern shore of the lake, Lecco and Brianza), to Chiavenna, and eastwards to Bolzano, via Passo dello Stelvio.
Once a small fishing village, Collico is now a vibrant little town with a harbour, promenade, beach, restaurants and shops. It is situated at the foot on Monte Legone which stands at a height of 2.600 metres.
The largest Nature Reserve in Lombardy, Pian di Spagna, is located just north of Colico across stunning, open countryside.
To the south, within walking or cycling distance of Colico, is the Bay of Piona which is favoured by sailing enthusiasts. It has a gently sloping beach with sunbathing area and overlooking the bay, is a popular restaurant which provides typical local dishes.
Take a leisurely walk along the lakeside footpaths in Piona and admire the stunning panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
The Abbey of Piona in Colico is well worth a visit. The abbey is set at the top of a small peninsula, which resembles a crooked finger, pointing to the lake creating an inlet.
The original church of Saint Justina was founded in the 7th century; the ruins of an apse behind the current church of San Nicola belong to this original edifice.
Lombardy - Lake Como Area:
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.
It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.
All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.
Warming, in spriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.
The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).
