About the neighbourhood
Menaggio tourist office is situated in the main square and offers a great deal of information detailing what’s on in the lakes, sightseeing, history and sporting activities. Menaggio has its own boat terminals for various trips around the lake which is ideal for travel to many of the other lakeside towns and places of interest. Buses run regularly to Lugano, Como & St Moritz from Piazza Garibaldi on the main waterfront if you wish to travel further afield. During the summer the area boasts fantastic opportunities for many activities including mountain biking, cycling, horse riding , walking, fishing, tennis and many water sports including kite surfing & speedboat hire.
Getting around
Car is essential to reach our apartment. However public transport is a great way to get around the lake and surrounding areas. Simply park your car along the lakeside and take a ferry or bus to explore lakeside towns and villages. For Lake Como the nearest ferry is Menaggio (7k) and for Lake Lugano Porlezza (2km) Parking spaces in Italy are marked white or blue. White is free parking and blue requires a ticket from nearby ticket machines - a few Euro's will allow you to park for most of the day.
