Explore the Lecco Branch

That branch of Lake Como, which turns at noon, between two unbroken chains of mountains

Among the Pages of Manzoni and the Villages

A Journey Through the Intricate Blend of Literary History and Real Places

Lecco, on the eastern branch of Lake Como, is synonymous with Alessandro Manzoni and the Promessi sposi, the novel that all Italians have read or studied at school and relives in the city and in the modern hamlets: Pescarenico, overlooking the Adda with the church and the convent of Fra ‘Cristoforo, Villa Manzoni, the house of Lucia in Olate, the ascent of the good ones in Acquate.

The first autumn is the ideal season to visit the places of the famous masterpiece of Manzoni and to discover that the lake of Lecco should be savored slowly, including literary evocations, elegant old villas overlooking the banks and botanical gardens of rare beauty. It is only after passing Malgrate, that the scenery appears in all its beauty with the Monte Resegone in front, with its famous nine-pointed profile.
