Lecco is the second biggest city of the Como lake district, with the characteristic village of Malgrate at the other side of the river Adda, at the bottom eastern part of the lake.
Occupying the area between the lake and the mountains, dominated by Monte Barro, Mount Resegone and the Grignetta, it attracts many visitors from Milan and the Padana Plains.
During the summer period the lake walk from Lecco to Malgrate is transformed into a charming place to stroll where many events are organized. Lecco is the birth place of the writer Alessandro Manzoni and the author of the famous novel “I Promessi Sposi“. Villa Manzoni has been designated a musuem and public exposition area open to the public.
