    - Bellagio is a hotspot for celebrity hunters, A-listers pack this beautiful lakeside town in the summer months, be sure to have your camera and autograph book handy!
    - Varenna is a great place to spend an afternoon wandering the winding streets, viewing traditional Italian architecture and simply soaking up the atmosphere. If you're feeling a little more active take a walk up to Vezio Castle for fantastic views out across the lake.
    - The famous Villa Carlotta is less than 15 minutes walk away. The Villa, which is now a museum housing a fantastic art collection was completed in 1745 and offers serene views of Lake Como from its fantastically designed terraced gardens.
    - Some fantastic walking routes begin from Menaggio, hikes travel into  the hills above the lake and offer unrivaled views across the landscape, that make all the effort worth it. Menaggio is accessible by local bus from the hotel in less than 10 minutes.

    Local Events

    - By far one of the biggest events of the summer in Lake Como is the Lake Como Festival. Held between February and the late end of summer and early autumn the festival sees classical music performances by a number of international performers. Venues tend to be the beautiful villas surrounding the lake. For more information and to see who is performing when you visit check http://lakecomofestival.com/wp/.
