Lake Como Holiday Guide

Scenic settlements and historic architecture, beautiful mountainous landscapes and water sports; Lake Como is a captivating destination in northern Italy that attracts plenty of visitors every year.

Lake Como is one of Italy’s absolute highlights, with its attractive towns and villages dotted around a beautiful blue lake, framed by incredible natural beauty of forest-clad hills and mountains. The area has been a popular holiday destination since Roman times, and it’s not hard to tell why. Explore the cobblestone streets and discover the medieval attractions, lavish palaces, traditional pizzerias and ice cream parlours. Visit luxury resorts, alpine villages and sleepy fishing communities and enjoy outdoor adventures, like water sports, biking and skiing.

Visit the walled city of Como on the lake’s south-westerly tip for its grand historic centre and the stunning Villa Olmo. Ride the funicular from Como to Brunate, an alpine village and enjoy its hiking trails and unforgettable viewpoints. Explore Cernobbio, just an hour’s walk from Como, which is home to the 16th Century Villa d’Este and its 25-acre (10-hectare) garden. Admire the views across to the lake’s eastern arm from the unpretentious Argegno.

Spend some time in Lake Como’s Golden Triangle. Don’t miss the luxury resort of Bellagio, where waterfront promenades and cobblestone streets lead to lavish palaces and stunning landscapes. Hike wooded hills and sit at a café-lined piazza in Menaggio. Learn about the region’s medieval fishing history at Varenna and relax in sleepy Cadenabbia.

In the lake’s south-eastern corner is Lecco, a city that attracts artists with its mountainous landscapes and Romanesque architecture. Nearby Cassina becomes a popular ski resort during the winter months. On the northern shore, both Colico and Domaso are lively water sports centres. Try kite surfing, sailing and windsurfing amid breathtaking scenery.

Lake Como and its attractions are perfect for day trips, weekend breaks, adventure holidays and honeymoons. Get around the towns and villages via buses, boats and ferries or on foot and rented bike. Stay overnight at hostels, guesthouses and upscale resorts and bask in the lake’s romanticism. Of all of Italy’s picturesque lakes, many describe Lake Como as the most alluring.
