Argegno is one of Lake Como’s most frequented places, as a place to stay as well as to stop in to visit. Argegno boasts a sweeping lakefront promenade, a slender but lively road stretching northward from Como, and a stunning array of vibrantly painted houses that appear to climb endlessly up the steep slope from the lake's edge.
From Argegno a road travels to the Valle d’Intelvi (Intelvi Valley), which connects Lake Como with Lake Lugano.
Very picturesque is the ancient center of the town which is divided into two parts connected by an old, pointed-arch stone bridge.
From Argegno you can take the cable car to Pigra (881 mt), a charming village located on a plateau from which you can enjoy a stunning panorama of Lake Como.
