Lake Como

Lago visto dall'altoEnjoy Lake Como

All villages around Lake Como are accessible via boat or bus.
A unique experience to get to know the lake, starting from Como and moving north towards the mountains and east to Lecco. 
Lake Como, also called Lario, is about 46 kilometers with a maximum depth of 400 meters. Characteristic Y-shaped Lario is well recognizable from the sky. Visiting the lake with a seaplane is indeed a rare experience to do. 
Lario is famous around the world for its luxury villas and gardens. In spring, neoclassical Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo offers its visitors a mangnificent spectacle of rhododendros and azaleas. Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio, "the pearl of lake", is the place to breathe history, art and culture of a glorious past when Leonardo da Vinci, poet Giuseppe Parini and Queen Victoria used to spend their time here.
Villa Balbianello, situated on Lenno's promontory, offers a beautiful garden and loggia with a spectacular view over the lake. In front of Ossuccio we find the only Lario's island, Isola Comacina, with its old traditions and flavours, its Romanesque church (Santa Maria Maddalena) with a Gothic bell tower and rationalist "artists houses". 
Como and its lake are also considered a “must-see” by  cinephiles who can visit here Star Wars, Ocean’s Twelve e Casino Royale’s locations.
