Nestled on the shores of Lake Como, the delightful community of Nesso is situated between Como and Bellagio with postcard-pretty views over the lake. This quiet village, with its houses tumbling down the hilly slopes, dates back to Roman times. It has some local shops, restaurants, a grocery store, pharmacy and a post office providing most of what holiday-makers to Lake Como will need.
This area is well known for its regional specialities of cured ham, cheese and wine. Nesso has several places to dine in style, or visit Lucy's Bar which has an impromptu jazz evening each Sunday and visiting guests are welcome to jam with them.
The area offers some beautiful scenery between the surrounding hills and the calm lake. Drive around the lakeside along narrow lanes or enjoy exploring the local area around your Nesso holiday villa on foot.
