  • Sunday covered and windy, but by now we had decided to take a trip and opted, having read good reviews, for the Horrid of Nesso. Parked up, we walked through the alleys of the village and thought the waterfall was all there. Then from the street we saw the bridge down at the bottom and, after the advice of locals, we walked down a stairway (no stroller) that descended steeply to the lake, passing between old houses of the village. When we get down, we get on the bridge and finally we see the real waterfall, the highest one. Difficult ascent, especially with a lazy 4-year-old, but worth it.

  • You have to stop at Nesso to see the waterfall and the bridge. It's worth the effort to get there, or the steps (a little steep) or you can go wandering around the village. It's the typical picture that goes on the internet. Beautiful

  • After a great meal at the Ness di Nesso pizzeria restaurant, the visit to the horrid nesso and obligatory From the restaurant before the bridge a long staircase guides you on this walk, about 286 steps, if I have not counted badly, between old houses and excellent photo views , you arrive at the port of Nesso and continuing down you find a rest corner in the sun directly on the lake, then continue a little more and a pleasant gallery with panoramic view of the lake takes you to the stone jumper from where you can admire the waterfall that bears the name to the horrid nessofness. It's a must-see.

  • Thought it is more fancy but the city itself is not as renovated as Bellagio or Varenna. It is ok but was not a Wow for me.
  • Amazing view! Must see place at como lake!
  • Not "Orrido" at all!
  • The ravine is a beautiful glimpse into the landscape of the lake. It is worth the pen to get 250 steps to see the Roman bridge and the church. Anyway in 10 minutes you see everything.

  • Nessme is my place of the heart. I go there very often, in any season is always wonderful. In winter the quiet gives a sense of absolute peace and in summer the water of the lake is spotless and you can bathe. It is not a place for everyone, there are many steps to reach it and if you are not at the top of the shape can be difficult. Very nice also the castle present in the country. A must see.
