Hotel Grand Britannia Excelsior Cadenabbia

Hi We are visiting this hotel on a Shearings holiday early May and wonder if anyone has any tips for places to visit on our free days? Also can anyone advise if they have free wifi in the hotel. I can't find this information on either the hotels website or on Shearings information. Thanks for any advice you can give.

You should visit the other villages on the lake, get the ferry over to Varenna and Bellagio, regarding Wifi I would send the hotel an e-mail.

Thank you for your advice. We will look forward to travelling around the lake by ferry as I believe they will be running a full schedule by then.

All of the aformentioned , Varenna is beautiful the lakeside but also the village centre above.

San Martino griante.......walk up to church take in the amazing views and the Alpini church on the way

Lenno & Villa Balbeinello ....you can take a boat from the lido to the villa or take the woodland walk , the Villa was used in the films ' Quantum of Solace' and ' A Month by the lake '

Argegno.........see the roman bridge across the stream /river, take the cable car up to pigra.

Menaggio ........walk along the lake front to the lido .or just sit in the piazza and watch the world go by.

Porlezza...........Lovely little Village on the Italian side of lake Lugano little shops, bars and resturaunts

Villa Melzi Bellagio.... Beautiful Gardens lovely and cool take a picnic

Isola Comancini........ on the list for me next time ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,lots of other places too , too many to mention ;-)

The Greenway del lago di Como............. A wonderful walk along Lake Como , can be pretty 'Hairy' in places , but well worth it though
