Mandello del Lario has numerous well-equipped facilities for both recreational and competitive sports. 



Mandello del Lario is one of the cornerstones of Italian rowing history. For rowing fans there is the possibility to go out on the lake by boat: from a single boat to a coxed four, without forgetting the "sulkava churchboat", a Finnish 14-person boat.
Today, within “Canottieri Moto Guzzi” (Moto Guzzi Rowers), in addition the "Youth", "High Specialization" and "Master" sections, there is also an "Amateur" section dedicated to "fitness rowing" and the organization of rowing tourism events ("AkuaDuulza" ) along the coasts of the Lake.
While the competitive activities are held at the historic headquarters of Via Statale (the headquarters is currently undergoing restructuring), thanks to an agreement with the municipality of Mandello del Lario, the Lido is now home to amateur activities that are carried out throughout the year.   More information:
