Places in Lecco and Lake Como not to be missed

When you find yourself in such a heterogeneous situation as the one represented by Lecco and the surrounding area, it may not be easy to select the right proposalamong all those possible.

For this reason we recommend anitinerary in stages that collects thirteen places of overt interest, in the city and in the surrounding area, selected by a group of young people who have indicated their most attractive destinations.

There really is something for everyone!
Those who want to indulge in a carefree walk can point to the stop in the center of Leccoand its lakefront, with the ascent to the belltower of the Basilica of San Nicolò (the so-called “Matitone“) to enjoy an incomparable view.

Still in the center it is possible to deepen the history that binds the city to the famous author of the Betrothed, by visiting Villa Manzoni, or to reach, a little further away, the grandiose park of Villa Gomes, a stronghold of theLombard Scapigliatura. The most nonconformists can decide to discover the works of street art, while those with trained legs will have the opportunity to visit the dark Castle of the Innominato, above the hill overlooking Vercurago.

For those who love the lake, is unmissable a visit to Malgrate and Abbadia Lariana, for a canoe or boat ride or even just to lie in the sun, while those who prefer excursions will not fail to admire the Romanesque complex represented byAbbazia di San Pietro al Monte, far from Civate just one hour walking.
