Mezzegra is part of the stunning Lake Como region, along with the lovely town of Bellagio and many others. Guests in our Mezzegra vacation rentals can immerse themselves in this town's Old World charm, complete with quaint dining, gorgeous lake vistas, and seasonal festivals. It's a wonderful choice for a quiet getaway in a stunning setting.
This tiny enclave on the lake's western shore sits about 19 miles north of the town of Como, where you'll find plenty of sights, entertainment, and dining. You're also across the water from Bellagio, a destination known for glamor. The small-town atmosphere of Mezzegra is cozy in comparison, though there's still plenty of Lake Como luxury here.
History buffs might appreciate a visit to the 1945 execution site of Benito Mussolini, which is often open to visitors. The old town center has plenty of historic buildings to explore, harkening back to the town's days of opulence. The church of St. Abbondio, the Mezzegra's Patron Saint, overlooks the lake and features gorgeous frescoes and rich Baroque decor.
Take a walk on one of the many trails throughout the hills - the hike to Monte degli Stampi, featuring some interesting fossil structures, is particularly popular. July visitors should check out the festival of Palio di Mezzegra, which offers the chance to watch parades and Medieval games put on by the nearby villages. Wine connoisseurs will enjoy sampling the Mugnano wine, made from local heritage grapevines.
Make one of our Mezzegra vacation rentals your next Lake Como getaway. This town has much to offer travelers seeking a relaxed atmosphere, historic charm, and Italian culture.
