Menaggio is a charming town located on the picturesque shores of Lake Como. One of the highlights of Menaggio is its stunning lakeside promenade, which offers panoramic views. Take a leisurely stroll along the promenade and immerse yourself in the tranquility of the lake. Outdoor enthusiasts will find themselves in paradise in Menaggio. The surrounding area offers a myriad of activities, from hiking and mountain biking in the nearby mountains to water sports such as sailing, kayaking, and paddleboarding on the lake. Nature lovers will also appreciate the abundance of hiking trails that lead to breathtaking viewpoints, allowing you to fully appreciate the natural beauty of Lake Como.
Menaggio is also a gateway to exploring other towns and villages around Lake Como. You can easily take a ferry to visit Bellagio, Varenna, or Tremezzo, each offering its own distinct charm and attractions.
For the convenience of our guests, we suggest arriving by car, but you can also use public transportation. The ASF Autolinee C10 bus line connects Menaggio to Como and other lakeside towns, and the bus stop is close to the property. From the pier, a local ferry service will take you to Como, Bellagio, Varenna, and other lakeside towns. Please note – if travelling in high season, we advise you to be patient with long waiting lines at the ticket office. Tickets can also be bought online on the Navigazione Laghi website. The mid-lake ferry also transports cars.
From Como San Giovanni station, there are regular trains departing to Milano Centrale and Switzerland (Lugano, Bellinzona, Locarno). From Como Nord Lago, there is a train connection to Milano Cadorna.
The nearest airports are Milano Malpensa, Milano Linate, and Orio Al Serio in Bergamo. It is possible to arrange a direct shuttle to and from the airport at an additional cost.

>Lake Como is one of the deepest lakes in Europe and the deepest in Italy. Swimming and diving are prohibited in many areas and can be dangerous. For those who wish to dwell in the water, however, there are some options. There is a beach (“lido”) in Menaggio. Locals and visitors also enjoy traveling to Nesso where the bravest swimmers can jump into the lake from the ancient Roman bridge near the waterfall.
Lido di Bellagio and pebbly San Giovanni beach will be waiting for those who wish to travel farther and explore the beautiful town of Bellagio which lies in the middle of the two Larian branches.
>Lake Como is located in a mountainous region. The surrounding pre-Alps might not seem very high, but the climate is nevertheless affected by the nearby mountains, and temperatures can change quickly.
