Lake Como (also known as Lake Lario) is shaped like an upside-down Y simple and is 146 square kms in size. It’s been a popular spot with the wealthy for centuries, and the Romans were the first to build villas there.
Take a ferry ride and visit some of Lake Como’s towns, like Bellagio, with its old buildings and cobblestone alleyways, and Como city, with its cathedrals, curious museums and unique monuments. To take a dip, visit Lido Di Lenno Beach for a sandy lakeside strip complete with a bar and restaurant PLUS music and dancing in the evenings.
Love hiking? You can go it solo or hire a guide to help you navigate all kinds of trails, from the snowy, surreal summit of Monte Legnone to the mountain scenery of Val Cavargna, a peaceful green valley.
There’s some great shopping in the Como area: boutiques, designer fashion and shopping malls like Foxtown, which is across the border in Switzerland and filled with designer outlets. Lake Como has a fine bunch of restaurants offering traditional Italian food and, often, fantastic views of the lake.
