Menaggio

With about 3,200 inhabitants, Menaggio is situated at the head of a wide valley that links it to Lake Lugano. From an urban layout point of view, the village consists in a centre and three outlying hamlets: Loveno, with prestigious Villa Vigoni, Nobiallo and Croce. It has ancient origins and a prestigious artistic heritage.

At the end of the lakeside promenade there is a mini-golf course and just beyond that the Lido (1934), a fine example of Rationalist architecture. Those wishing to visit the charming Villa Mylius Vigoni can follow the itinerary for Loveno , a walk lasting about 40 minutes to this small, but charming village popular with artists and leading figures from as early as the mid-19th century. A vast English garden, designed and built by Giuseppe Balzaretto, surrounds the villa, offering a natural and environmental backdrop of rare beauty. It boasts orchids, centuries-old trees, panoramic viewing points and exotic plants that create a truly unique setting.
