The lake and mountains are beautiful. However it is in Switzerland not Italy so it is surrounded by lots of unattractive functional buildings rather than the glorious ornate Italian style. Como, Garda and Maggiore are all much prettier.

Came here after a trip to Milan and the lake country. Had a few extra days after Varese, and chose to stay here vs. along Como. Much quieter here, easy public transportation, decent food, good accommodations. Highly recommended.
