Lenno is a pretty village just south of Tremezzo and has a charming harbour, interesting historical centre and weekly market. The impressive Villa Balbianello is also nearby.

Lenno is a small pleasant town in a good location and only 10 minutes southwest of Menaggio, from where you can take the car ferry over to Bellagio & Varenna. The town of Lenno dates back to Roman times. The baptistry in the village square is from the eleventh century and the crypt of the church dates from the twelveth century.

For exploring Lake Como the peaceful little town of Lenno is an excellent choice as, having its own ferry point, it makes getting around by boat an easy and pleasurable experience. It is situated between the probably better known lakeside towns of Moltrasio and Tremezzo.

Lenno has a Tuesday market stretching along the promenade which sells a wide range of products including fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, cheeses and meats, clothes, shoes and many more. Close by are some good shops and restaurants with everything you need to enjoy your stay, there is also a beach (which is stoney but popular with holiday makers and locals)

The neighbouring villages of Tremezzo (Villa Carlotta), Cadenabbia, Menaggio, Bellagio are situated a few kms away. There is a weekly market in Mezzegra (Friday) and Lenno (Tuesday). The fishers of the village offer you daily fresh fish. In Mezzegra town, you will find supermarkets, the post office, bars, coffeehouses, the baker (which if you wish delivers fresh rolls to the house), can be reached in just a few minutes by foot.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries. It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations. All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

                          Ski: This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

                          There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema , not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

                          There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

                          The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx. 100K
