Lecco already has one of the best vantage points for looking out to the lake. Up 30 meters, you’ll be able to see the town of Lecco below and in the distance, Bellagio, Mandello del Lario as far to Varenna and perhaps even to Colico and as far out to Switzerland. (Until I get up there, I won’t be able to tell you!)

Located next to the war memorial along the lake in Lecco.
