The Lombardy / Lake Como Area region
Lake Como, also known as Lake Lario, is the deepest lake of Europe, with a depth of 410 meters (1345 feet), as well as the third biggest Italian lake (146 km2, 56 square miles).
This area, thanks to its mild and humid climate, favours the lushness of an abundant Mediterranean flora: cypress trees, laurel trees, camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias, and palm trees.
Inhabited since prehistoric time, this "piece of heaven" is an oasis of peace, where you can relax, enjoy hikes, water sports, taste the excellent local cuisine while you're staring at the majestic mountains diving into the lake.
This wonderful landscape and the surrounding valleys inspired many Italian artists and scientists, such as Alessandro Manzoni, Virgilio, Alessandro Volta...
The Romans were the first to realise the importance of the waterway of Lake Como that they navigated in their biremes transporting legionaries and goods towards the alpine passes in the direction of central Europe.
It was only in 1826 however, the year of launching the "Lario" steamboat that the first regular navigation service was started up for the public. Today, the jumbo-hydrofoils seating 200, and the large motor launches take off on their frequent crossings from the wharf of Piazza Cavour, stopping off in all the main centres of the lake and reaching as far as Colico, 70 kilometres away to the north. The launches offer splendid cruises from April to September with lunch on board, and journeys to satisfy even the most seasoned travelers.
The Bellagio area
There are few places as romantic as Lake Como, and even fewer lakeshore town as charming as Bellagio. "La perla del Lario" (the Pearl of Lake Lario, better known as Lake Como), as Bellagio is often called, is a perfect destination for a resting vacation and to admire one of the lake's most enchanting panoramas.
Bellagio is situated in a privileged position on Lake Como, on the tip of the promontory which separates the lake into two branches, forming the Como branch westwards and the Lecco branch eastwards.
The most ancient part of Bellagio occupies that area at the end of the promontory and is known as 'the Borgo'. It is a picturesque combination of stairways lined with colourful shops with the finest quality merchandise and excellent restaurants. Numerous little characteristic suburbs are scattered both along the lake and the hilly slopes above the Borgo.
Bellagio is a strategic starting point for seeing the entire lake. Thanks to public transportation, including boats, ferry or hydrofoil, from Bellagio you will possibly visit the most romantic parts of Lake Como, with its towns and unique historic villas with magnificent gardens.
