San Siro is a small village (formerly known as Santa Maria Rezzonico) and lies on the westside of Lake Como on the southern slopes of Mount Bregagno. To the north of San Siro you will find the town of Cremia which is a great spot for windsurfing enthusiasts and to the south lies the town of Menaggio where you can find plenty of shops and restaurants as well as the ferry port. San Siro is approximately 30km drive from Como.
Built on the slopes of a promontory, above which, towers a castle dating back to the 14th century. The name Rezzonico may originate from the Rhaetic people who lived here, from “Rhaeto”, an Etrurian captain who lived in the area or from the local term “risciulada” which indicates the cobblestone paving so typical of this village.
There are many things to see in San Siro; churches, ruins of ancient convents and fortresses along cobblestone paths and nature walks that take you up into the hills. Although San Siro is a small village, it does have some shops and restaurants and being only a 2 minute drive from Menaggio has all the main facilities to hand. Rezzonico (dialect Rescionegh), is the lakeside hamlet.
