Places  Others  of naturalistic value  of landscape value around Milan (Italy): Lake MonateLake Monate is a lovely lake of spring origins, between Varese and Lake Maggiore. Of small Size and shallow depth (2.5 km 2 and 40 m approx., Respectively) it is one of the cleanest lakes in Northern Italy. It is completely suitable for bathing
and the reduced slope of the seabed at the shore makes entering the water not dangerous as in many other lakes, where you immediately lose the ground under your feet.

Lake Monate is almost entirely surrounded by gardens, parks, meadows and managed beaches. It is populated by various species of waterfowl (including nesting), like mallards, coots, water moorhens, great crested grebes, swans. Sometimes it is visited by cormorants and black kites. In the late afternoon you can swim surrounded by those birds, which during the hottest hours tend to remain hidden in the cane thicket.

The towns around it (Cadrezzate, Comabbio, Osmate, Travedona-Monate) offer a large choice of restaurant, various of which directly on the shore of the lake.

To a day at the lake you can add a visit to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rosary in the adiacent town of Monate.
