Tremezzo

by Aurorae

Tremezzo is a small, lovely place on the Como's side of the lake, famous for its spectacular Villa Carlotta, the true pearl of the lake and perhaps the most beautiful villa around. The gardens are the loveliest I have ever seen!

Ferry & Boat

by Aurorae

There are regular boat & ferry services on the lake, and from Como you can reach other parts of the lake, such as Bellagio, Tremezzo, Varenna... I suggest boat as the most exciting transportation if you're going to Bellagio or Varenna, but for Tremezzo I'd suggest road by the lake, as you'll be passing through some truly lovely towns.
Here is the ferry schedule website.

The Ferries of Lago di Como

by starship

We might consider it a rather romantic way to see the Lago di Como area, but for Italians who live here it's everyday life. At the lakefront, hop aboard one of the several ferries which will take you to some of the larger towns around Lake Como for additional sightseeing. These ferries are reasonably priced, timely and a way to experience another form of travel in Italy. You can travel to Bellagio, Varenna, Tremezzo, Menaggio, etc.

Brilliant Place for a Honeymoon

by TripAdvisor Member Gillian62

My husband and I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Grand Tremezzo. What a perfect place for a Honeymoon!

The hotel was spotless, towels changed twice a day, we liked the chocloates on the pillows in the evening.

The staff were all very friendly and courtneous, demonstrating a very well managed establishment. The swimming pool on the Lake was fantastic.

A wonderful and relaxing holiday.

A good hotel with stunning views

by TripAdvisor Member CHG30

We spent 4 nights at the GHT palace in June this year. The hotel has wonderful views over the Lake and is superbly situated. The public areas of the hotel were all maintained to a very high standard and superb. The gardens were beautiful and the pool on the lake is a unique and lovely place to swim.
The hotel restaurant delivered us an exceptional meal on the one night we ate there, for 2 courses and a bottle of wine the bill was £120. The terrace is used for eating both for breakfast and the evening and has wonderful views. The breakfast included in the room rate was of a very high quality.
The room itself was a little bit of a let down. The stripped wood floors looked as though they could do with a good polish and the vanity basin in the bathroom could have done with replacing. However, the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were quiet. I would definately recommend paying the supplement to have a lake view, as these rooms have balconies whereas the one's looking over the gardens do not.
A note on Tremezzo, there isn't much there other than the hotel and a few restaurants so if you're looking for a little bit more variety I would head to Bellagio instead.

Disappointing

by TripAdvisor Member Sarfie

I thought the hotel was tired and past its best- I suspect it was very fashionable 20/30 years ago but I just don't think its up to scratch for a 5 star hotel and the price. Our room was very poor- old furniture, very dark and gloomy and not even a stand for our suitcase or a dressing table to get ready at it the morning. Our room overlooked the gardens (which are by the way lovely) and from what I saw the rooms overlooking the lake are much better kept and much lighter so probbaly best to ask for a lake view. Also the tap broke off in our bathroom and would only run cold water!

We were not terribly impressed with the service- my husband's £100 brand new jumper went missing from the hotel bar after being left there for 10 mins and I lost a chanel compact which I left in the powder room again for 10-15 mins by mistake. None of the staff were at all interested or helped us search for the missing items- not what I would expect at any hotel let alone a 5 star hotel.

Althouth the view of the lake from the hotel is fab the hotel is situated right on the main road which is noisy when you were etaing on the balcony at breakast/ in the evening. A lovely new pool had opened just before we left but you had to cross the main road to get there and when you did make safely through the traffic you had to put up with the tour boats going past as you were lounging by the pool- disconcerting!

Tremezzo itself doesn't have much going on and its not terribly picturesque and if I were to go Como again I would stay in Bellagio as its a much prettier town. It has more restaurants and bars but neverthless manages to avoid being at all tacky- we hopped on the boat from Tremezzo to Bellagio most nights for dinner- last boat back thouugh is about 11.30pm.

Another tip if you go to Como is that you can get a day pass for the lake from the Tourist Office which means you can travel between Tremzzo, Bellagio, Managgio and Varenna at will- the latter is an idyllic Italian village- a real find and thoroughly recommended- particularly lunch on the terrace at the Hotel du Lac.

Lake Como

by stockton

After enjoying a Prosecco and then some sleep, we woke to the sunrise over the Alps with the mountain tops poking up through the clouds. Landed at Malpensa and picked up a car to drive up to Lake Como at 8am (ie 2am Toronto time). Our destination was Bellagio - not that far north of Milano but it took us 2 -1/2 hours to get there. First we had to navigate through Como at rush hour with a coupla accidents then you take the lakeside road which is very narrow and winding with absolutely no shoulders. I'd say it was really 1-1/2 lanes wide.
Bellagio is truly spectacular and lives up to its reputation as the "loveliest town in Europe". Lake Como is at the base of the Alps and is shaped like an inverted 'Y' with Bellagio at the "crotch". The shore rises fairly steeply . The level was probably down about six feet as it had been a hot, dry summer. We found our hotel after finally finding reverse - the Metroploe is a three-star, centrally located opn the water in Bellagio. It was clean but nothing special. Had a ower nap and then wondered around a bit and ended up at a lovely restaurant called La Punta that was about 10 minutes out of town. Passed some georgeous villas on the way, then more exploring of the shops in town. Main shopping street is pedestrian only. An English couple that we chatted with told us about a restaurant called Trattoria Giacomo that is so popular that it fills up in 10 minutes after it opens at 7pm - naturally we had to go! Sure enough it was full by 7:10!! Dinner was excellent and good value with suggestion for matching wines. With only about 15 tables, there were tons of folks sitting on the steps outside waiting for a table. The waiters would give them a glass or two of wine while they were waiting so it soon became quite festive out there.

oday we did a walking tour along with a little shopping along the way. The town'shistorical center is called the 'Borgo' . There are remnants here and there of the medieval walls that made up their defense system. There have been villas on Lake Como since Roman times. Pliny and his buddies hung out here. Went through the Basilica San Giacomo, a Lombard-Romanesque style church built in the 11th century, although the bell tower is older.

It turns out that our hotel was the first to open in Bellagio in 1825 and was called the Hotel Genazzini. Thank god they have renovated since then.

Just outside of Bellagio proper is the Villa Melzi that was built in 1810 by Conte Melzi who was a friend of Napolean. Mre gorgeous gardens along the lake with huge old trees from all over the world. We crossed the penisula to the other side (about 10 minutes walking) to Pescallo, a quiet fishing village. Had brunch at Pergola on a beautiful grapevine canopied terrace. Beneath us on the sand was the local artist oil painting the scenery. e was quite good and hade several works for sale at 100 euros. Walked back through the "suburbs" passing many nice hhomes and a coupla more villas.
Back at the hotel we discovered that they had a roof terrace. Took a bucket of Smirnoff Ice and Comparis up to the deserted roof and spent a leisurely afternoon reading. What a view! Weather again was perfect.

Went back again to Trattoria San Giacomo as it was so good. Fresh funghi porcini in three courses was the special that night. More step people.

Today we decided to the take the efficient ferries to different towns on the lake. For 7.50 euros you can buy an all day pass for the towns at the center of the lake. First we went to Tremezzo ad the Villa Carlotta. There are many beautiful old villas around the lake but this one is particularly known for its 14 acres of gardens. It was first built in 1690 but is named for a Prussian princess who eceived the villa as a dowry in 1848. The gardens are well maintained and full of plants and trees from all over the world. The rhododendron trees are huge.

Back on the ferry to Varenna where we stopped for brunch at Albergo Olivedo (of Rick Steeves fame). It was across from the ferry landing. Perfect weather to sit in the sun, enjoy a carafe of wine and dine on the local fish which is a type of trout.

Lake Como must be hopping in July and August, so September is quiter as things slow down. Wandered through Varenna along the water'scedge on the apsserwlla that hugs the lake. Visited the Villa Monastero that was originally a fmale Cistercian monastery in 1200's. Now it is a conference center. The gardens here are beautiful with nice statuary and curved stone walls.

Mennagio
Next stop was Menaggio. Walked along the water's edge and skipped a Villa here. Had a gelato and relaxed in the piazza. There were 5 gelaterias around the piazza.
Beief ferry ride back to Bellagio where we sat on a patio under a lowered awning and people watched. Dinner tonight was at Bilacus up on the rooftop terrace. Good food, fish de-boned by the waiter and a bottle of Sambuca put of the table for our cafe corretos.

Linate to Tremezzo

by davey1986

i'm flying from London to Milan Linate airport, but my hoted is in Tremezzo. How do iget there without hiring a car

Re: Linate to Tremezzo

by mccalpin

Tremezzo (and the neighboring towns) doesn't show up on www.trenitalia.com, so I guess there's no rail service there.

I would highly encourage you to contact your hotel and ask them how to get there...

Bill

Re: Linate to Tremezzo

by nicolaitan

without knowing your situation, suggest strongly that if possible you reconsider renting a car for yourselves. Tremezzo is really a pretty easy trip and the car gives you a great deal of freedom in an area where the easiest transport otherwise is by assorted ferries and hydrofoils on the lake. you would be on autostrada to como and on an easily driven road north to tremezzo.

Re: Linate to Tremezzo

by Graceful

Try ferrovie nord, or ferry from Como (serviced by both FNM and FS) or Lecco (FS)

questions about Argegno

by sararosa

We will be traveling to Argegno in the spring of this year. Are there any good restaurants/food shops that anyone would recommend? What raw products is this town known for, and how far from Como by auto? Any information would be helpful. Thank you for your comments! Sararosa

Re: questions about Argegno

by Cristian_Uluru

Hi, Argegno is about 25 Km far from Como and you need about 30-35 minutes to reach it by car. From Argegno you can visit Isola Comacina (Lenno), Tremezzo and from here Bellaggio (via ferry). You can also visit Lugano following the road toward Lanzo D'Intelvi.

Re: questions about Argegno

You will find information about food specialities of Lake Como in this webpage: http://www.lagodicomo.com/english/tavola.php

Re: questions about Argegno

by sararosa

Grazie Manara; I looked up that web site and it answered many of my questions about the region of Como/Argegno, I am looking foward to my vacation there.Italy is where my heart is.
I don't know how I would plan for such a vacation without virtual tourist's as yourself answering my many questions. Sararosa

transportation

We will be coming into Malaspena Airport going to Lake Como We leave Lake Como and go to Venice in Cannaregio area then to Milan the street is Piazza Principessa Clotide 10. What would you reconmend taken to get to these hotels?

Re: transportationfile:///usr/share/ubuntu-artwork/home/locales/index-it_IT.html

by juzz

Hello,

first of all, have you decided the order of your stages already? It looks like you'll have to jump here and there all the time! The places you told are almost on a line from West to East but not in the order you're visiting them, this will only mean that you'll make more kilometers than needed, nothing worse than this, but if it's not too late, you can think about rearranging everything. The western place is Malpensa, going eastwards you'll find Milan, then Como Lake, and Venice is the most eastern place.
Apart from this, I think you should avoid arriving in a big city like Venice or Milan by car, but it could be useful to go around in the Como Lake area. So, if you're going to Como Lake from Malpensa you can think about hiring a car, leaving it before to go to Milan. Leaving Malpensa airport is in general quite easy even with public transportation, you can choose a bus and a train, the bus takes you to Milan Central train station (it makes some stops here and there also but I don't remember them) and about the train you can have a look at this website:
http://www.malpensaexpress.it/website/malpensa_express/en/home/index.php
To reach Venice I would use train, from Milano Centrale train station or from other cities in northern Italy if you're going around by car at that moment.

That's all I can tell you, I hope you'll find it useful.

Regards,
Sergio

Re: transportation

by juzz

I'm sorry for the object of my previous posting, I think I made an unwanted copy&paste.

Re: transportation

by nicolaitan

from the time you arrive in Venice, you can and should do everything by public transportation as you cannot have a car in Venice and you don't want one in Milan and the trains will get you between the cities and then out to the airport efficiently. Lake Como can also be done by public transit - Malpensa to como by train with change in Saronna, then around the lake by ferry and hydrofoil. But having a car for Lake Como is a good idea - you can drive up both sides of the lake, visit Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo or the beautiful villas like Melfi near Bellagio, stop south of Cernobbio for silks at Ratti, and even drive up Lugano with beautiful scenery and lovely villages all along the way. Then drive to Venice, like the airport, dump the car, and continue on your way.
