Lenno is a village in the Mid-Lake area overlooking the splendid Gulf of Venus that boasts authentic artistic jewels, including the world-famous Villa del Balbianello. A charming panoramic walk leads to the Sacred Mountain of Ossuccio, one of the nine pre-Alpine sacred mountains that make up the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The itinerary covers an area known locally as Zoca de l’Oli or “oil hollow”. In fact, the area enjoys such mild climate it is perfect for growing olives and producing olive oil.
After a lovely lakeside walk, at the end of a promontory, sits the previously mentioned Villa Balbianello.
