Lenno is located in a deep inlet of the western bank of Lake Como, in one of the most fascinating parts of the lake called “Tremezzina”, renowned for its luxuriant vegetation and its calm waters. The town offers a wide variety of very good local restaurants, bars, shops and a Lido, a lovely sandy beach providing sun beds and parasols where you can sunbathe or have a swim. When the sun goes down the Lido transforms and nothing is better that a walk on the golden sandy beach sand enjoying a cocktail in a unique atmosphere with candlelit seating. The lakeside restaurant is elegant and cosy offering a wide selection of local dishes but also international cuisine. After dinner you can dance on the beach with the best deejays of the area. The Lido is also often frequented by tv celebrities. The most beautiful villas, first from all Villa Balbianello spread out in this part of the lake. Villa Balbianello holds a fantastic position with views up and down the lake, with its gardens that are extraordinarily beautiful and its loggia that are absolutely worth a visit! A number of feature films have used the villa for location shooting, including Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and the last 007 Casino Royale. For those who like walking we recommend the “Greenway del Lago”, a wonderful walk along the lake discovering villas, gardens, Roman findings, quaint villages, restaurants, old Italian architecture, and expansive views. You can do the entire walk in one go in about 3 hours and a half, or if you prefer stop and continue with public transport. The whole Greenway is 10.5 km going through the villages of Colonno, Sala Comacina, Ossuccio, Lenno, Mezzegra, Tremezzo and Griante. The port of Lenno is connected with boats and hydrofoils of navigation to the main towns of the lake. Lenno has also a wonderful lake front promenade. While in the high part of the Lenno you can visit the Abbey of the Acquafredda, dominating the whole village. From here you can reach through a safe mule track the Abbey of S. Benedict in Val Perlana, founded around the year 1080 within a two hour-walk.
