Looking for advice on our October Honeymoon on Lake Como :-)

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.

Cheers!

Try Hotel Florence or Belvedere in Bellagio, or Hotel du Lac in Varenna for honeymoon-friendly views and comfort.

Romantic trip must-sees:

Villa del Balbianello (Lenno) [for extra "wow" potential, consider hiring a private water taxi w/ included tour of the villa itself]

Villa Carlotta gardens (Tremezzo)

Castle Vezio (above Varenna)

Stroll along the Lake Como Greenway (http://www.greenwaydellago.it/#) or hike the Wayfarer's trail (…libero.it/viabftx/…aa_default.htm).

Congratulations!

Kat
