Howdy! We are looking for Village and Hotel recommendations for an early October trip to Lake Como. Hoping to find a nice lake front hotel for up to $350USD (preferably less) a night in one of the more active lake communities. We don’t plan to rent a car and will bouncing throughout on the ferry system so we would also need to consider an area central to all and/or has decent ferry service options.
Also would be interested in recommendations for good restaurants (off the beaten path) where the locals eat and recommendations for must-see locations/activities around the lake.
We have looked into staying in Veranna and Bellagio but figured we need some advice before trying to narrow it down or consider somewhere else.
