Mandello del Lario

Mandello, with a population of over 10,000 inhabitants, is the third largest town of the lake. Its economy is based on small-scale industries. This quiet hamlet that stretches along the lakeshore is characterized by genuine simplicity and is relatively undisturbed by the tourist circuit.
