Lenno (lake Como) 

General Data


Dock Services


Lenno raises within a deep cove called Gulf of Venus, along the western shore of Lake Como. The Port of Lenno is linked to the main villages around Lake Como by some hydrofoils and steamboats. It is about 200 m long and can receive about 40 boats of different sizes. The port is situated on the northern shore and it is well-sheltered by the gulf which opens on the East for about 350 m.

The port is characterized by the presence of a white-and-red pole which indicates the depth of waters. An additional T-shaped public pier can receive some other boats. The port is situated between Lavedo and Balbianello. Even though it is not a real traditional port, boats can dock at the floating pier perpendicular to the coast in case of emergency. The gulf, featuring a low bottom, offers a safe shelter to stay at anchor.

The area is characterized by an almost total absence of wind, except for few light breezes in the morning and Menaggino wind in case of storms.

The port is the starting point of a nice promenade which runs along the whole bay to the promontory of Balbianello, which hosts a famous villa generally used by some foreign film directors. The Medieval Saint Stephen's Church and the Roman Baptistery are two other interesting attractions.

In Lenno, there are also some beautiful beaches, such as Campo Beach, situated at the mouth of the river flowing in the so-called Val Perlana and equipped with a large car park, Lido di Lienno, a sandy well-equipped beach, and St. George's Beach, equipped with a wide garden and a large car park.

In Lenno, visitors can test excellent fish dishes, such as risotto with perch, missoltini, fried alborelle, and the typical fish soup of Tremezzo with pike, trout, chub and perch.
