The Lombardy region
Menaggio is on lake como halfway the north-west coast, at 35 km from Como City and 25 km from Lugano and 66 km from Milan.
Climate: being on the south side of the alps, we benefit from a sheltered position against cold winds from northern europe. We have a very pelasant temperate climate , spring starts in April and the warmest month is July ( 30C) , but we are favoured with a lovely afternoon breeze, so it is never too hot . Autumn turns into winter and winter into spring, with no big differences in temperature, but the days are of course short. In winter we usually have sunny weather - with now and then a rainy day and it might snow once or twice! We are at 60-90 minutes from the ski slopes ( Madesimo, St. Moritz, Bormio , Gotthard region and San Bernardino. )
Lake Como was already known to the romans, ( roman churches, archeological sites), from the 12th century the area was a way-through fro trade and less peaceful wanderings. From the 18th century wealthy families from milan built their sumer houses and some of them can be visited , famous are beautiful are: villa Carlotta, Balbianello, Melzi)
Menaggio is a lively little town with a weekly market where the locals from the surrounding mountain villages meet for a chat and bring their goat cheeses for sale. Menaggio has cosy piazza's , narrow streets, trendy shops, good restaurants and pizzeria's and a stroll on the boulevard in the afternoon or evening is a must. On higher grounds is the oldest golf course of Italy with a very tricky green and also with a renowed restaurant where the rich and beautiful meet . Filmstars and footballplayers have discovered lake Como and try to become owner of a lake-side mansion.
In Menaggio you cross the lake and visit Bellagio and Varenna with the ferry, or take a full day ticket and crisscross from village to village.
Visit the beautiful villas (Villa Carlotta, Villa Balbianello, Villa Melzi, Villa Monastero) and the resort villages by boat and explore the hiking paths and the beautiful panoramic views over the surrounding landscape. Boat timetable: http://www.navigazionelaghi.it/
