Lezzeno is a nice village on the shores of Lake Como, on the way from Como to Bellagio( 5 kms. from Bellagio). With its many hamlets scattered along the shore of the Lake and at the foot of the mountains, Lezzeno is also a renowned residential centre.
We know that the area was already inhabited in Roman times from a fragment of a tombstone slab in tha wall of the parish bell tower with an inscription from the 1st-2nd century A.D.
The church of S.Quirico and S.Giulitta was built in the 16th century but was subsequently renovated, Oratorio della Madonna dei Ceppi dates back to the 14th century.
Antica Strada Regia: before the main road was built this path connected Como to Bellagio. Restored last year,the path is clean and well maintained with lots of signs to show the way. Wonderful views can be enjoied from here.
Lezzeno is also an important centre of craftsmanship. Iron wire and metal nets are produced here and it also has shipyards.
To shop for groceries and consumables, there are several small grocers, fruit stores and butchers along Lezzeno's main road. There are also some restaurants and pizzerias where you can find a list of the tipycal dishes of these area: popular first courses are different types of risottos and pasta and for second courses lake fish as well as meat are a popular choice.
From our Guestbook:
Four days in Lezzeno is not enough! Our time here has been refreshing and delightful and we are already looking forward to our next, longer visit.
The setting is more than I imagined it to be. We enjoyed our stay in Lezzeno, we found we could easily travel to a lot of places which kept us very busy for the week. We will definitly be back.
Thank you so much for your helpful kindness. We would have been lost without all your information and advice,
you are a perfect hostess.
We had a great time here in Lezzeno. You are the luckiest people in the world to live here. If we lived here, we might never leave the patio! What a view!
Thank you for your hospitality! We have enjpyed our home away from home. Your villa is lovely!
How lucky you are to live in such a beautiful place and we are very lucky to share it for a while. We have really appreciated the coolness of the apartment in the early evenings when we get back from our excursions and to be able to go just outside on the beach to swim in the lake and enjoy the more gentle sun of the evenings.
We have been several times to Italy, this year we spent some weeks, with this one being our last. We were looking for a tranquil, scenic place to spend our final week and so we selected Lake Como.In all of our trips, covering almost the entire peninsula, Apartment Magnolia has been the most spectacular setting. Add to that a gracious host who has been most attentive to our needs and you have perfection!
