Lecco holiday apartments on Lake Como
Lecco is one of the main towns on the breathtaking Lake Como, in Lombardy, north Italy. As it's not as well known as Como, a villa Lecco is a great idea for a holiday – all the scenery, none of the crowds, and affordable. Lecco is surrounded by mountains, and is a great place to go hiking, running, cycling, or climb one of the peaks, such as Monte Due Mani, or Grignetta. The lake provides the opportunity to try out a variety of water sports, such as diving, water skiing, kayaking and surfing. There are even a few great ski resorts in the area, making Lecco holiday apartments ideal for all seasons. Whether there's snow on the ground or not, head up the mountain in the Piani d'Erna cable car for fantastic views across the lake and mountains.
A holiday in a villa Lecco is also a cultural experience; the town is home to the Villa Manzoni, a museum of the poet and novelist Alessandro Manzoni, the 13th century Duomo San Nicolo and many other beautiful religious buildings, villas, and monuments. Of course, you can also find delicious local food in the town, which features a lot of fish from the river Adda, and polenta, high quality cheeses. Keen culinary explorers should visit other nearby cities such as Pavia, Varese, Mantua, and Monza, to experience the variety of traditional cuisine one can find in a small area. Lombardy is also home to numerous wine producers, making every style of wine you could wish for, particularly in Garda.
