  • GIARDINO SUL LAGO , Lake Como, Ossuccio


Ossuccio is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Lake Como with a lovely view on Isola Comacina, Bellagio peninsula and the Grigne mountains. It is a really pretty village and has a lovely lakeside location. It is famous for the two bell towers prominent on the lake front: the sail shaped’ tower of S.Giacomo and the Moorish tower of the Church of S. Maria Maddalena ad Ospedaletto Ossuccio is an ideal starting point for walkers. One walk in particular is quite steep, which passes fourteen baroque churches and leads to the 'Santuario della Madonna del Soccorso. From here you can reach Alpe Boffalora and enjoy a lovely panorama that goes Val Perlana and reaches Alpe Lenno. Behind you can admire the beautiful Lake Lugano. You can have lunch at the Rifugio where you'll taste local specialties and on the way back you can take an alternative route that goes down to S. Benedetto enjoying spectacular views. There are also many well known villas, especially the imposing 'Villa del Balbiano' and the 'Villa Leoni'. From here you can easily reach the next-door village of Sala Comacina where you can get the Taxi boat to visit Isola Comacina. Lenno is just 1km away offering the popular beach Lido di Lenno and well known Villa Balbianello, while the bigger village of Menaggio is 8km away from where you can catch the ferry boat to visit Bellagio and Varenna.
