Lenno is a pretty little village, set around a picturesque horseshoe bay that looks across to the neighbouring town of Bellagio. Lenno’s star attraction is the lovely promenade, which can be found along the lakefront. It’s dotted with restaurants and cafes, where you can stop for a cappuccino or panino while enjoying the views. Not far from the village you’ll find Azzano, where the baroque-style Villa Sola Cabiati can be found.
Make sure you set aside some time to visit the village’s other attractions, including the 15th-century Church of Saint Stefano and the nearby pebble beach. Lenno also has a popular weekly market on a Tuesday morning, selling local produce as well as souvenirs, leather and clothes.
Lenno is just a short drive from some of Lake Como’s other villages and towns, including Menaggio, which features a popular golf course and provides easy ferry links to other towns.
