Welcome to Careno
About 1.5km south of the town of Nesso, Careno is signposted, but if you blink, you'll miss it. This tiny, lakeside hamlet looks like an inverted triangle from the opposite shore, with its church, the Romanesque Chiesa di San Martino, at the bottom. Satisfaction with discovery and a shady, lakeside stroll should be followed by a meal at the charming Trattoria al Porto. With its oddly shaped balcony-pergola just above the ferry landing, this place is a hit with Como folks in the know and specialises in lake fish.
