The Lombardy region
Lake Como has been famous and popular for centuries, due to its unrivalled beauty. It is still popular today for many more reasons: It is within striking distance of many interesting places - Milan, Monza, St Moritz and Lugano, to name just a few. It offers something for every type of holidaymaker from the sporty to chill-out to culture-vulture with water sports, golf, horse-riding, stunning villas and historic churches, shopping to die for (ask for our designer outlet guide), wine tastings, gourmet restaurants and some of the best pizzas you will ever taste at only €4 for a pizza margarita, you can't go wrong! It is also home to the island of Comacina and one of the most famous restaurants on the Lake, visited by everyone from Eisenhower to Clooney.
Sala Comacina is a popular village on the western shore of Lake Como, about 25 minutes from Como town and 60 minutes from Milan Malpensa. It is well served by public transport with both bus and ferry stops.
There is a picturesque lakeside piazza from where you can hop on a romantic water taxi for the short trip to the only island on the lake (Isola Comacina and the famous restaurant 'La Locanda del Isola'). There is a good choice of restaurants for such a small village:
La Tirlindana, located in the lakeside piazza in THE most romantic setting overlooking the island
La Comacina with a panoramic balcony overlooking the lake & the island
Taverna Blu - lakeside setting with atmospheric garden
ProLoco - a relaxed location for light snacks and pizzas right by the lakeside and of course the world-famous Locanda del Isola, on the island itself.
There is a small store, a weekly market, post office, bank and butchers. There is also a small local beach.
Catch a ferry to the rest of the lake or hop across to the island.
