Walking around the lake, among villages, historic villas and superb views

The province of Como is industrious, but it is on the shores of its famous lake featuring picturesque views, charming villages, Art Nouveau-style architecture and enchanting gardens that over the years have captivated Hollywood and the countless actors who have made their home there. From Menaggio to Cernobbio, from Torno to Laglio via Bellagio and Tremezzo: every stop along the way is bursting with beauty and authenticity.

Tourists looking for a cultural holiday among unmissable monuments, churches and museums can start in Como and spend a day exploring the city: the Cathedral, Villa Olmo, which often hosts exhibitions, not forgetting a trip to the Tempio Voltiano with its permanent exhibition dedicated to physicist Alessandro Volta. Then you can take a break for a few hours and take the cable car from the lakeside promenade to Brunate.

Trekking enthusiasts can enjoy breath-taking views from the Sacro Monte di Ossuccio, one of the nine Sacri Monti hilltop complexes of Piedmont and Lombardy, listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Another must is a trip to the Isola Comacina, a small oasis of peace surrounded by the waters of the lake and accessible by boat from March to October.
