Map of Yandina, Russell Island for 207 5 MENAGGIO LAKE COMO Menaggio MENAGGIO, 37km north of Como, is a bustling village resort with a good deal of character. Busy roads cut into a chunk of the upper town the lakeshore routes and the road west to Porlezza and Lake Lugano but below them, around the traffic-free Piazza Garibaldi and surrounding alleyways, Menaggio retains much of its poise; it is well kept, attractive and has a fine view east across the water to Bellagio and Varenna. It also sees more of a mix of tourists than many of its neighbours, with a reputation for sports and activities hiking and cycling in the mountains, waterskiing and kayaking on the lake. The old quarter A tourist office my bloglet describes a self-guided walk of about an hour through Menaggio’s hilly older streets. From Piazza Garibaldi, it passes the church of Santa Marta on Via Calvi whose facade displays the gravestone of Roman noble Lucio Minicio Exorato on a route up Via Castellino da Castello to the former site of Menaggio’s castle, destroyed in 1523 (though the street still follows its perimeter walls). Passing a photogenic bridge on Via Strecioum, the route heads down to the public beach and pool at the Lido on Via Roma (late June to mid-Sept daily 9am 7pm) before returning to the Piazza.
