"That branch of Como Lake, which turns at noon..." MilanoRe Hotel

Hotel in Cinisello Balsamo

“That branch of Como Lake, which turns at noon…”

The Lake of Lecco, just 40 minutes drive from MilanoRe Hotel, is “that branch of Como Lake“, so beautifully described by Alessandro Manzoni in the novel par excellence of Italian literature: I Promessi Sposi. On this lake overlooked the fortified village of Lecco wanted by Azzone Visconti of which today remain some traces in the historic center, including the bridge of the same name at the point where the Lake of Lecco resumed to be the river Adda.

A beautiful setting to admire directly from the lake, renting a boat at the rental centers on the lakefront and by boats and ferries with scheduled departures.

For sports enthusiasts there are many possibilities for fun and entertainment such as sailing, water skiing, canoeing, diving, surfing and kitesurfing. Many beaches and beaches present to enjoy moments of relaxation in a unique and unforgettable.

Continuing by car, we meet the other preferred destination: Como, also known by the name of Lario, from the Latin Larius as the Romans called it (Lacus Larius), today little used but present in the name of some riverside locations (Abbadia Lariana, Mandello del Lario, Gera Lario and others) and is used to identify that piece of territory between the two branches of the lake that forms a triangle with the vertices respectively in Bellagio, Como and Lecco: the Larian triangle.

Lake Como offers a succession of glimpses that remind us of the Norwegian fjords: dug between the chains of the Orobie Pre-Alps, which make it fascinating and special, especially on the eastern side. The western side instead offers us spectacular villas renowned for their gardens and for the history and art that they hold. It presents itself with its valuable monuments, striking views and the charming old town. If boats and hydrofoils are an excellent opportunity to admire the city and fully enjoy the beauty of the landscape, to enjoy a wider view there is no more suitable means of the funicular that connects Como to Brunate. Equally striking are the towns along the lakefront like Cernobbio, home to large stately villas such as Villa d’Este and Villa Erba, and Bellagio, known as the “pearl of the lake” for its attractive scenery and the splendid Villa Melzi and Villa Serbelloni.
