At just 60km from Milan and 20km from Como, Lenno is easy to reach and a great base for exploring the delights of Lake Como. The village itself is only small – but if you are looking for a holiday of relaxation and rejuvenation, the peace and quiet of Lenno will be the main draws for you. Lenno is one of the quietest resorts in the central lake area and off the beaten tourist track, but close enough to get back on it whenever you wish.

Things to do in Lenno, Italy

The village is located in one of the most peaceful parts of the lake, known as the Tremezzina, which is famous for its especially calm waters, great weather, lush vegetation and spectacular scenery – the ideal recipe for a spot of relaxation.

As with many of the towns and villages dotted around the outskirts of Lake Como, Lenno is the home of some grand old villas that the majority of us can only dream of owning. The finest example in Lenno is Villa Balbianello, which is famous for its lovingly-tendered gardens and for being in several big-budget Hollywood movies. A walk around the gardens is a must, and for a small fee you can also examine the lavish interior of the villa.

Most of the cafes, restaurants and bars in Lenno are located on the promenade, taking full advantage of the spectacular views out over the lake. There are several experiences from a vacation in Lenno that will stay with you forever, and drinking a glass of the local wine on a warm summer evening, whilst admiring the views of the lake, is likely to be one of them. More amenities including a tourist information office can be found in the main square, Piazza XI Febbraio.

Beautiful

5 of 5
Beautiful apartment with stunning views. Very clean and comfortable, downstairs room is lovely and cool, but stairs not suitable for young kids. Lenno has some great restaurants, we loved Bar Sport and Il Cris. The market on a Tuesday is worth a visit. The highlight for us was the boat trip over to Bellagio. Would love to stay here again.

4 of 5
A little way out of town & a steep uphill walk of 10 minutes, the apartment is in a private, gated complex of holiday & permanent homes. Everyone there is friendly & Franco the manager was great, especially when I asked for more bedding, which arrived within 20 minutes from a really helpful & apologetic lady - far more than we needed, plus extra towels. The views from the balcony are absolutely amazing & we spent each early morning sitting watching the place wake up. Everywhere is clean, well maintained & tidy, the pool is shared with the locals who live there permanently & the apartment itself is reasonably spacious, modern & well equipped. It would take 4 people easily, 5 adults would be possible, but may be a bit of a squeeze. There's a cot, a pull out bed, a large double & twin beds; 2 bathrooms. One of the local ladies told us a couple of good restaurants to try but, apart from those, we found Lenno a bit lacking in variety of bars & restaurants (we didn't have a car); there's a great gelateria! We took advantage of the 6 day boat pass & made great use of it, traveling between the towns around the middle of the lake. If you want a quiet holiday, looking at unbelievable scenery, exploring beautiful gardens & villas, quaint Italian lakeside towns & are happy to have the occasional meal out, then this is a good place; if you're looking for the glitzy nightlife, then Lenno probably shouldn't be your first choice. Oh, & remember your raincoat, as we were deluged by three spectacular thunderstorms!
