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.

Travelers and Activities

An Eldorado for water sports fans

At Lake Como you will find many possibilities for paddling and boating. Surfing, sailing and kitesurfing are particularly popular between Bellagio and Colico, where the wind conditions are ideal for water sports.

Hiking and climbing over high mountains

Lake Como attracts a large number of climbers every year because the nearby mountains of Monte Grigna and Monte Legnone offer perfect climbing conditions. Hikers will also find a fantastic paradise. If you want to walk from summit to summit, then the Via dei Monti Lariani in the west is highly recommended, a historic trail 125 kilometres long.

Bathing holidays at the refreshingly cool lake

During the summer months Lake Como reaches a water temperature of just under 22 degrees Celsius. But for people who prefer a cooler refreshment, the lake is just right. Therefore, there are numerous romantic bathing places with sunbathing lawns and pebble beaches along the entire lake shore. Some swimming pools also have a boat hire service.

Prominent personalities such as Madonna, Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Donatella Versace own a holiday residence on Lake Como.

Top 5 travel tips

1. up to the holy mountain

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. These include Villa Melzi and Serbelloni in Bellagio, Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo and Villa Mylius Vigoni in Menaggio. Villa La Gaeta, located in San Siro, was used in 2007 as the location for the James Bond film "Casino Royale".

3. visit castles and fortresses

Friends of historical buildings should also make a detour to the impressive castles of the region. From the Castello di Vezio not far from Varenna you have a fantastic view of the lake. The castle is open for visits and also has a castle museum and a falconry. In Colico you can visit two fortresses, the Forte del Fuentes and the Forte Montecchio.

4. enjoy the large selection of fish dishes

Lake Como is a water rich in fish, which is why fish dishes of all kinds are on the menu here. Fish can be pickled, dried, baked or roasted. They are often served with sage, butter and olives.
