Located in the Como Province of Lombardy in northern Italy is Lake Como, one of the most popular destinations in the country for locals and tourists alike. Its popularity is based on a combination of the fresh air and water, the good climate, the surrounding mountains, and the water. The numerous towns surrounding the lake are also a major part of the appeal.

    Although the town may not appear to be as attractive as the others surrounding Lake Como, it is still worth visiting because of its views from the top of the lake. There is a historical World War I fort that is open to the public once a week.

    Menaggio

    • Pör
    • Sögu
    • Myndatökur

    Located on the western shoreline, this attractive tourist destination is not as busy as Bellagio and Varenna. There is a youth hostel located here but it is usually filled on weekends so keep that in mind. Additionally, the pedestrian-only area in the heart of town is populated with coffee shops, gelaterias, a lakefront mini-golf course and snack bar, and several restaurants.
