Menaggio has a convenient and friendly tourist office just off the main piazza area by the lake. They have a good assortment of brochures and maps of the area, free wi-fi for visitors, and a free book exchange which I took advantage of several times. We decided to go on the community walking tour to explore this lovely Italian town.
We enjoyed buying freshly-baked bread made each morning at Il Fornaio. Be sure and get there early as they sell out by afternoon.
There are historic churches along the way…
Ancient carvings on the fortress walls.
Our apartment didn’t have wi-fi, so our favorite local restaurant and bar in Menaggio became Bar Costantin located just off the main piazza and down the alley from the tourist office. They were open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and had wi-fi, so we stopped in often.
