Vacation at Lake Como

Location and orientation

Holidays in Lombardy

Lake Como is located in Northern Italy and has a characteristic fjord-like Y-shape, which results in a central part and lake arms. Important towns on the lake are Como in the southwest, Lecco in the southeast and Colico in the north. The lake area is surrounded by the Monte Grigna massif and Monte Legnone, which is 2,619 metres high. In the middle of the lake there is only one island, the Isola Comacina, which was already inhabited in ancient times.

A wonderful landscape area for relaxing holidays

Along the shore there are many small villages, which radiate a very special charm. In between there are luxurious villas, some of which date back to the 15th century. Due to the Mediterranean climate, many subtropical plants grow here, such as citrus fruits, palms, olive trees and cypresses.

On the way by ship

On Lake Como there is a lot of boat traffic, partly only for people, but partly also for cars, which connect the villages Bellagio, Varenna, Menaggio and Cadenabbia. Passenger transport also takes you to Colico, Como, Lecco and Lierna.

The Sacro Monte di Ossuccio is also called "Sacred Mountain" because it has numerous chapels from the 17th and 18th centuries. These chapels represent the mysteries of the Rosary. You will find the Holy Mountain on the west side of Lake Como. It was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2003.

2. Take walks to the impressive villas

The area around Lake Como was previously used for the production of silk, for which silkworms were bred on mulberry trees. At that time many stately buildings were built for the landowners and other prominent personalities, which you can visit during a walk.

Villa La Gaeta, located in San Siro, was used in 2007 as the location for the James Bond film "Casino Royale".
