What's Menaggio Like?
Menaggio isn't quite as chic and refined as some Lake Como resorts, attracting visitors more interesting in hiking and outdoors activities than in fashionable cafes. Facilities for walkers are excellent in Menaggio, with the tourist office providing details of trails with varying levels of difficulty, including the ascent of Monte Grona and long-distance treks above the shoreline of the lake. Cycling is also a popular pursuit, with some scenic itineraries along the lake shore. Menaggio has a few historic sights to appeal to sightseers, notably the baroque church of St. John the Baptist which features some impressive sculptures. The neoclassical Villa Carlotta has a museum with a prestigious art collection but is better known for its elegant 18th-century landscaped gardens with exotic trees and floral displays. Menaggio hotels are convenient for exploring the resorts of Lake Como, with the town's transport links making it an ideal base.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Menaggio
Menaggio is a small resort mainly frequented by Italians, so English is not always understood in the cafes and bars. Use some basic Italian phrases to ease your way. Driving can be a hassle along the shore of Lake Como, but rental cars are not necessary if you use the bus and ferry services, with connections to Varenna and Como. The bus journeys by the lake are very scenic. Bus tickets can be bought in bars or tabacchi stores. If you plan to use the ferries regularly to explore the region, consider buying an economical six-day pass, while one-day passes are an ideal way of enjoying an inexpensive cruise.
