About the neighbourhood
Explore Menaggio at your leisure, relax on the waterfront, sip cappuccini in Piazza Garibaldi, people watch, absorb the history and elegance. Travel by ferry, or hire your own boat and explore this wonderful place. Drop off at restaurants, chat to locals or for the more active try some water sports. For golfing enthusiasts the wonderful course in Croce (just a few minutes drive from Villa Isella) is open to non members. Menaggio is about half way up the western side of Lago di Como, an attractive and thriving town in the summer months and little more quiet in the winter! The heart of the 'old' town gathered around Piazza Garibaldi close to Menaggio's harbour features mostly 19th century buildings in the Italian alpine style painted in muted tones. The higher part of the town has a more...
Getting around
You do need a car when staying at Villa Isella Once you have parked in Menaggio, use the ferries for your adventures. The Lake Como ferries sail the length and breadth of the lake so enjoy the stunning vistas from the water. They stop at most of the little villages en route and you can hop on and off at your leisure. The local ristorante, La Rotonda, is only a 5min stroll away and certainly worth a visit. Once my guests have eaten there they seem to return every evening. No surprise though, it is family owned and run, great atmosphere, serving good food.
