The Lake Como region

Lake Como, a fascinating area that will win your heart

Welcome to Lake Como one of the most beautiful areas in Lombardy. This pre-alpine lake surrounded by a crown of mountains with peaks up to 2700 m high, is not only spectacular but rich in history and tradition.  The  lake is perfect for active as well as relaxing holidays.  Splendid 17th century villas with their lovely gardens,  antique Romanesque churches, old connection trails, mountain tops with a superb view of the lake,  and lots of sport facilities await you.

Lake Como  is situated  45 km north of Milan, close to the Swiss border. It  is 46 km long and has the form of an upside down Y dividing itself into two branches at the town Bellagio with the town Como at the tip of the southwestern branch  and the town Lecco at the tip of the southeastern branch.   Its crystal clear waters are  up to 400 deep, making it one of the deepest lakes in Europe.

By boat you can enjoy the view of the shores dotted with small towns of rare beauty, by bus or car you can discover the valleys with their rural settlements and small churches and by foot or mountain bike you explore the many trails around the lake. 

To the South, it gives way to the verdant landscape of Brianza, with villages, castles and hills marked by the flow of the Adda and Lambro Rivers.

Fiumelatte

Varenna is at the mid-point of the lake's eastern shore and it is positioned on a rocky headland dominated by a mountain, whose summit bears the unmistakable silhouette of the tower of an ancient castle.

Varenna is an unusual town. On the one hand, it is a lively and attractive tourist destination with several accomodation facilities, while on the other, it is home to one of today's best preserved medieval centres in the entire lake area.

The town has many points of interest, such as the Church of St. John the Baptist , which is one of the oldest in the Lario region, Villa Monastero, once a Cistercian female convent, with its impressing gardens and interesting architectural elements, Vezio Castle, vertically positioned 100 m over the piazza. The view from atop the tower encompasses the lake and a unique panorama.

Very interesting is also the enchanting promenade to the lake that unwinds amidst houses, villas, gardens and shops.
