This attractive resort, located on the western shore of Lake Como, is a joy for outdoor enthusiasts who may be tempted by wind surfing and water-skiing on the lake, as well as golf and horseback riding in the countryside.

I spent a few days in Varenna in the rain, and when the weather finally abated, I hopped on the ferry and spent the best part of the day walking around Menaggio. The place is certainly attractive, well kept, and offers scenic views up, down and across the lake. Easy to get to, frequent ferry service to Varenna and Bellaggio.... More

and while we loved Lake Como and Menaggio, we probably should have stayed in Bellaggio. We heard Bellaggio was very touristy so we chose Menaggio, but were limited to dinner dining options because there weren't many places in Menaggio and the ferries stop before dinner would end. Bellaggio had a lot of good restaurants (you could try a different one... More

This might have been our favourite town on Lake Como. Morning and sunset views enjoyed from either lake-side or higher up into the town. Really nice walks to be had from here. Of an evening, we would grab a takeout pizza, walk down to the numerous benches and sitting points available and just absorb the setting. Highly recommend a car... More

Menaggio is a beautiful little town. The wife and I walked through it one day during a visit. There are a lot of nice local shops, bars and restaurants.

Nice lake side resort village. Not large. Takes about a couple of hours to explore. A nice lake front walk. Nice boulevards. A few shops, some restaurants. Many tourists.
