The Lombardy region
Vista D'Este is on lake Como which is in Lombardy near the swiss border , north of Milan. Lake Como is 50 km long and is one of the most beautiful in Europe and is situated in a basin at the foot of the Alps and surrounded by lovely valleys.
The shores of Lake Como alternate between picturesque villages leaning out on the water, gravel-sandy, grass or rocky small beaches, pleasure harbours and water sport areas for windsurfing, sailing and water skiing.The climate is temperate although the tops of the mountains in winter turn white . Springtime starts in april and in summer the temperature reaches 25-30 degrees. The shores of lake Como alternate between picturesque villages leaning out on the water, they have grave-sandy, grass or rocky small beaches, pleasure harbous and large ares for watersports.
Lake Como's capital is Como-town which is worth a visit for its historical buildings ( Duomo), cosy shopping centre, trendy shops, especially for all kind of silk wear . 3 times a week is market day: get your italian fashion bargain!
Food: is Italy not the place for food? You prepare italian dishes at home, but the flavour once in Italy is so different and the smell of polenta, brasato, grilled meat and fish draw you to an inviting open terrace of a restaurant , pizzeria or trattoria near the lake shore .
Lugano, St. Moritz in the high alps, Lecco, Bergamo and even Venice can be done in a day trip.
Any small village on the lake shore is a treasure, get out of your car, and stroll through the narrow streets, cobbled footpaths, small pleasure harbours. Have a capuccino on the church square, and enjoy italian life.
