Visit other lakes from Lake Como or separately?

Will you have a car? With car Lake Stresa is not that far but Lake Garda is.

From Varenna and a few other places on that side of the lake you can get to Stresa by train, but you have to change in Milan. Same for Como itself.

I stayed at the Villa Cipressi in Varenna, which I can recommend. My last trip to Stresa I actually stayed on Isla dei Pescatori, but I'm not sure I would recommend that.

Stayed in Lake Como last September. If money no object, Grand Hotel Tremezzo is superb.

There is a second posting by the same OP so it would be helpful to concentrate all postings on this one -

Only comment here -

PalenQ - where is Lake Stresa?

Loved staying at the Grand Tremezzo Hotel.

We tend to travel in Europe in Sept....I've had many a lovely Sept. birthday dinners in some fantastic places BUT the one that stands out is at Al Veluu in the hills overlooking Lake Como above Tremezzo.

Just sayin!
