The Lombardy region
Lake Como is the most picturesque of the Italian Lakes, with wooded hillsides rising up from small lakeside towns. It lies north of Milan (close to both Milan Malpensa and Bergamo airports and the main motorway to Venice) on the border with Switzerland. It is quite different from the wider region of Lombardy, with its fertile plains and fields. Milan has something for everyone, although once you're settled on Lake Como, you may not want even to go that far, despite the attractions of the designer shops, the historic cathedral and adjacent galleria and the museum and opera of La Scala. If you want to see Michaelangelo's 'Last Supper', book well in advance.
Around Lake Como for the more active, there's swimming, water sports and great walking; if you're feeling adventurous there's an aerial rope course near Bellagio, a few golf courses (but remember the gradients) and cycling and mountain biking. For those interested in history and art there are beautiful villas, churches, military fortifications and museums. And for those seeking La Dolce Vita, there are great restaurants, bars and cafes to simply watch the world go by - oh, and did I mention the shopping! Speaking personally, it's about sitting on the terrace with a book and a drink, watching the view. That's after I've taken a walk to the bakery in Mezzegra, stopping off for a cappuccino at Bar Sport in Lenno. And contemplating what comes next - a boat trip to Bellagio or Varenna, lazing at a lido, a walk to Madonna del Soccorso. Even the food shopping is fun when you do it at the local Lenno market.
