The Grand Hotel Menaggio is in a great place 1 minute walk to the ferry and town centre bus station 3 minutes away. I stayed at this hotel on an organised Riviera Travel trip. I'd upgraded to a lake view room and the view was absolutely breathtaking.

There aren't many things to see in Menaggio but the town offers a pretty lakeshore lined with trees and flowers, attractive old buildings and dramatic mountain views as well as a sports centre. From Menaggio you can take boat trips around the lake, and embark on excursions to the lake's scattered gardens and beauty spots.

Menaggio is a lovely town but lack of great restaurants. You can take the ferry from Menaggio to Tremezzo and have meals at Al Valuu, which is up at the top of the town with a tremendous view and great food. I also ate at La Darsena which is right on the lake. Both restaurants had great local fish dishes.

As noted, Menaggio isn't a huge place. You'll find ideas about what to do and see, and where to eat, in the VT travel guide (everything is written by VT locals and visitors):

You can find lake ferry info, timetables and routes in English on the official site:

The fast ferry and the Midlake shuttle (pdfs on the link above) will take you to Varenna and Bellagio, both of which are worth a visit:

The fast ferry will take you to Como itself, well worth a day's exploration:

Several buses also serve Menaggio. Timetables here:
