In order to fight any further diffusion of COVID-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others, even outdoor. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn - in case of any personal encounters.

Continuing north of Ossuccio towards Menaggio you come to Lenno, which looks out across the lake to the peninsula of Dosso di Lavedo with the Villa del Balbianello. The main road runs past the church of Santo Stefano and its baptistry (on the right-hand side).

Lenno is a delightful town dating back to medieval days. Its buildings were enhanced by the outstanding craft skills of master stonemasons from Como, the Maestri Comacìni, who worked across Southern Europe in the 12th to 15th centuries and even later.
The town groups together what were once individual hamlets, still in a perfect state of conservation.
The slopes of the hills overlooking Lenno are a favourite haunt of excursionists, who follow paths leading to age-old abbeys and past trenches dug here in World War One.
