Malgrate overlooks the eastern branch of Lake Como and it is placed in front of Lecco. You can breathe an European atmosphere walking along the lake promenade.
Malgrate: a wonderful lake promenade overlooking Lecco and Lake Como
Malgrate is an enchanting town overlooking the eastern branch of Lake Como in front of Lecco.
In the past the two towns were linked by a ferry until when in 1336 the Azzone Visconti bridge was built.
Malgrate welcomes us with a new and great lake promenade of European appeal: you can walk and it seems you touch the water. Really so beautiful and you can admire a great view on Lecco and its surrounding mountains: Resegone, San Martino and Grigne.
Malgrate is nice to be visited all year long.
Near Malgrate going along the road on the lake you reach the close town of Valmadrera which offers many excursions among which we suggest you Sasso Preguda and San Tomaso.
While if you more days to spend on this shore of Lake Como, driving from Malgrate along the lake road you reach Onno with nice beaches and then Bellagio.
