Best towns on Lake Como. Not to be missed!

The best towns on Lake Como: Varenna, Bellagio, Tremezzo and Menaggio. Italian specialties, local shops, lovely promenades and gorgeous landscapes. That and more you will find in these locations which will make your stay unforgettable! Say goodbye to winter, it's time to enjoy Lake Como!

Imagine four little towns, different from each other but very similar in one, fundamental aspect: the magic. If you choose to spend your holidays on Lake Como, then you can’t miss them! When I tell you that they are the best towns on Lake Como I'm not just saying that! But let's find out more about these spots.

First of all, Varenna. It's small, welcoming and, thanks to its colorful dwellings, it looks like scene from a postcard. If you close your eyes, the smell of the restaurants and the traditional local shops will give you the feeling to be in an old black-and-white Italian movie!

Then we have Bellagio, one of the most touristic sites in the world. I think that the Bellagio in Las Vegas makes an excellent impression, but you can’t miss the original! With its magnificent Villas, picturesque shops and romantic restaurants it’s a 'must' destination.Both Varenna and Bellagio are perfect if you’d like to combine business with pleasure... You can relax and enjoy Italian specialties without feeling guilty thanks to the several treks which will help to stay fit!

If you are looking for a perfect harmony between local history and lake landscape, then Menaggio is the perfect fit for you! Thanks to its ancient origins, it offers a lot of cultural itineraries which can be easily combined with a walk along the lovely lakeside or with an ice-cream in the main square... It boasts one of the best gelato parlors on Lake Como!
Last but not least, Tremezzo. Have you ever been to a place that makes you lose track of time? Well, Villa Carlotta will amaze you with its botanic garden! Especially during the spring, the fragrances and the colors are irresistible! Be sure not to forget to visit the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, one of the few five-star hotels on Lake Como: its floating pool located right on the lake is one of a kind!
