The picturesque resort of Menaggio hosts all the charm you could ever hope for when planning your exotic breaks abroad. Spending time in the sun and strolling the landscape is the best way to appreciate the beauty in this town, so be sure to bring some sun screen and a pair of comfortable shoes. The appeal of Italy is truly evident when you’re traversing Lake Como as you’ll be presented with lakeside beauty that is sure to leave you in awe. The mountainous landscape is an amazing accompaniment to the luscious lake, making the scenery on holidays in Menaggio unlike any other in the surrounding area.
Within Menaggio itself, there are also plenty of attractions. Part of its charm lies in the architectural delights found around the town. Take a trip to the ancient Villa Monastero. This beautiful Cistercian convent was dedicated to St. Mary Magdelene and founded in 1208, and looks majestically out over Lake Como. Villa Carlotta is also a worthwhile visit. It whitewashed walls stand out against the lush greenery, providing a picture-perfect moment. Stroll along its manicured gardens and explore its informative museum.
Afterwards, drop by one of the many cafes or pubs for a pit-stop lunch, before continuing your exploration. See what you can pick up in a quirky boutique or head out to the 18-hole Menaggio and Cadenabbia Golf Club, for an afternoon game of golf.
In Love with the Landscape
Menaggio Holidays are frequented by those who are in search of a relaxed pace and an incredible natural atmosphere to escape to. Strolling down the Lake Como shore is a favourite activity for locals and visitors, as you can explore the verdant scenery and botanical glory of the area here as well as the amazing views of the mountains in the distance. If you want to get closer to the sites and explore marine life in the lake, then hire a boat with the family or with friends to traverse the waters and see what Menaggio and its surrounding areas have to offer. The incredible mountainous scenery can also be appreciated from another vantage point, as the local golf course not only immerses you in a well-kept green area but is hugged by the verdant mountains in the distance. If you’re not too keen to practice your swing and you’re tired of being on your feet, take an express train tour around the town and between Lenno and Mennagio. Much like Lomazzo, Menaggio boasts a peaceful atmosphere through the days and the evenings with only a few bars and restaurants to indulge in. A livelier atmosphere in the evenings can be taken advantage of on holidays to Menaggio if you venture to Milan. The one hour-long trip will present you with some of the liveliest and largest clubs in Italy, as well as small local bars.
