When planning your day out it is a good idea to check a weather app and compare Menaggio, to Como, to Lugano, for example. I have often found that a foggy day in Menaggio becomes a brilliantly blue-skied day in Lugano, just a 40 minute drive away. 329 more words

Explore! Try an afternoon in Rezzonico!

You will not automatically be drawn to Rezzonico. The tourist guides and websites will recommend that you visit Como, Bellagio, Varenna, Mennagio, Tremezzo to see the amazing Villa Carlotta, and perhaps Lenno to see the famous Villa Balbianello. 311 more words
