The Lombardy region
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.
Warming, inspiring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Lugano, 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.
A regular bus service runs from the town to the cosmopolitan Swiss city of Lugano in just 25 minutes, and here a wide variety of boutique designer shops, cafes, bars and restaurants specialising in worldwide cuisine can be enjoyed. The nightlife is also very vibrant in Lugano with some fantastic nightclubs, music venues and a modern lakefront casino. There is also a convenient 20 minute bus service from Porlezza to Lake Como, stopping in the picturesque resort town of Menaggio. The town features pretty cafe-lined piazzas, an idyllic promenade and a frequent ferry service to Varenna and Bellagio. Lake Como also boasts some fine Villas and restaurants. Lake Como activities also include boat hire, wind surfing, sailing, cycling, hiking, swimming, quad biking and golf.
The surrounding area of Porlezza boasts some spectacular hiking trails through the unspoilt nature reserves of Lago di Piano and the Lake Lugano mountainside. There is also horse riding in the Porlezza countryside as well as fishing and cycling.
Porlezza is just over the mountain from Menaggio on Lake Como and on the scenic route to Lugano. Porlezza is the main town at this end of the Lake and adds an Italian flavour to a well known Swiss name!
Lake Lugano is surrounded by beautiful hills and mountains, the area experiences a climate close to that of the Mediterranean climate, the beautiful mountains, surrounding villages and towns together make Lake Lugano the perfect holiday destination. Some of the interesting mountain peaks to visit near Lake Lugano include Monte Bre and Monte San Salvatore, Monte Bre is the closest to Lugano and is about 925 meters high, the mountain stretches over the border of Switzerland and into Italy.
