"One of the best place to see the Lario"
In my opinion Mandello del Lario is one of the best place to see the Lario (lake of Lecco).
Piazza Italia, the central place of "Mandello Bassa" offer a good view to the lake, whit an old ferry wharf.
"A city splitted in 2 parts"
Mandello has 2 parts: "Mandello Alta" and "Mandello Bassa". The first is located over the railways line, the second on the lake. So Mandello have two down towns.
