Menaggio, Lake Como
Painting by: Teresa Dominici, Title: Menaggio, Lake Como

On the middle west bank of Lake Como, Menaggio is larger than Varenna and home to many residents who commute daily to Lugano, Switzerland, just eight miles away. Stretched out alongside the lake, a beautiful, flowered promenade runs the length of the village.

Menaggio has a few piazzas spread throughout the town. In one we discover "loaner" bikes which we are able to borrow for an hour. What a great way to see the sights! Peddling up one hill.
