Leisurely start to today. Breakfast at 8 to 9:30 then we both did some emails and Facebook catch ups in the lounge until about 10:30. Then we asked about the bus to town, and they thought we looked fit enough for the walk instead. Which turned out to be great advice. The path was great, interesting, not on the road, and heaps shorter and more …
... We spent the entire morning here studying and sketching the building. After lunch, we saw the Monumento ai Caduti which is a futurist style building and is right by the lake. The final building that we saw was Palazzo Novocomum which is a housing building. The rest of the afternoon was planned to be free but Marina said that the program would cover the lift fee to get to the top of the mountain that overlooks the ...
... we assembled the stroller. We paused in a walkway on the way to immigration and he seemed to calm down, but the rage started again as we processed through immigration and picked up our bags at baggage claim. By the time we went through customs, he had supernova'd completely and fallen asleep in daddy's arms. He slept the whole way to the hotel up in Lugano (about 2.5 hrs), then napped for another 3 hours or so once we got to the hotel (after a brief redux of ...
... and the Swiss Apls across the skyline.. breathtaking! We came back down and had lunch in a restaurant by the Lake. Delicious Italian pasta, nothing like it! :-) We then went on a ferry around the lake and enjoyed seeing it from a different point of view. We came back to Como and walked out on the jetty and then made our way back home to pack. We got dinner from a little pizzeria on our road which was amazing!
... in the evening and walked around the town and then down to the Lake. We went to the Christmas markets at the lakeside and then walked through the shopping district. We found a little pizzeria and decided to have dinner there. We watched our pizzas being made from scratch and then cooked in their pizza oven - they tasted amazing, especially with a glass of Italian red wine! ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Merloni Menaggio
Reminds me of a 70's family hotel. Which is great by the way. Mainly I am talking about the set breakfast and dinner hours, your room number on your table, which is the same tale every meal. Like a Flag Inn back home in Australia.
The room was clean and functional, although very small. Not enough room to open 2 suit cases.
The pool is great though, there is air on and tv and bar fridge in the room.
And the staff where always helpful and pleasant.
Getting to and from town you have three choices: taxi (€15), bus (~€2) or walk. The walking path is great actually, and obviously easier to walk down to Menaggio than back up. Takes less than 30 minutes down.
