Menaggio is situated in the heart of Lake Como, on its western shore, at the beginning of a valley that connects Menaggio with Lake Lugano. The town consists of a centre and three villages - Loveno, Nobiallo and Croce - and has a total of about 3200 inhabitants.  Menaggio is of ancient origins, and in its centre as well as in its villages, there are many interesting monuments which can be discovered following an interesting itinerary described in the leaflet  “Historical Itinerary Through the Town and its Hamlets In case there are children walking with you, the tourist office suggests the amusing puzzle tour you can do together with the itinerary through the centre. Since the second half of the 18th century, high society liked to stay in the splendid villas of the sunny village Loveno. Among these is Villa Mylius Vigoni. The hamlet Nobiallo, built around its parish church of SS Bartolomeo and Nicolao  with its characteristic Romanesque leaning bell tower of the XIII century, is crossed through by the Antica Strada Regina, an ancient roman road. From Croce you can take the short walk to the superb belvedere “la Crocetta” where you find remains of the defense line of the First World War. Thanks to its central position, its main ferry links and bus connections, Menaggio is an ideal starting point for all kinds of excursions. On foot or by mountain bike you can explore the trails of the Val Sanagra Park, a large territory rich in flora and fauna just above Menaggio. Menaggio boasts an awesome 18 hole golf course founded in 1907, and a lido with a big beach and swimming pools. The restaurants in the centre of town and in the hamlets all have traditional dishes on their menus either with lake specialities, with its preference for fish, or the cuisine of the valleys, with polenta, game, mushrooms and local cheeses.  During the evenings musical events in the piazza , and small handcraft markets, often  animate the town.
