Lecco is in Lombardy, northern Italy.
- Lecco - the town itself is not noteworthy regarding art and architecture, though it is a good base to visit the lakes region and the surrounding mountains
- Varenna - picturesque town on the eastern shore of Lake Como, worth visiting for the attractive and relaxing gardens of Villa Cipressi and Villa Monastero.
- Bellano - Just north of Varenna on the eastearn shore of the lake. Nice non-touristy town, with a pedestrian only area in the town center. Bellano was a silk production center, but those factories are now closed. The orrido (gorge) is geologically impressive, but most of the tremendous flow is now directed into a powerhouse.
- Colico - nice views at the top of the lake, but the town's not that attractive. There is a WWI fort with guns nearby, but it's only open one day per week.
- Civate Abbey - a nice Romanesque monastery
- Leonardo's Ferry - a ferry connecting the towns of Imbersago and Villa d'Adda thanks to a design by Leonardo da Vinci
- Piona Abbey - gothic monastery located in Colico
- Vezio Castle - remains of a castle located over Varenna, the walk to it is a steep hike, with a rise of many hundreds of vertical feet. There's a falconer that gives shows occasionally.
- Villa Orsini Colonna - a nice estate located in Imbersago
