The Lombardy / Lake Como Area region
Lake Como has been popular as a resort since the days of the Roman Empire. Visitors ever since have admired the blue waters and relaxed in luxurious villas in the wooded lakeside slopes above. Today, most of the towns around the shores of Lake Como are popular with tourists, walkers, cyclists and swimmers.
Many areas of interest just a few Km from Torno:
Como is a lively and pleasant town with an appealing historical centre and a scenic location at the southern end of the east branch of Lake Como. The impressive cathedral (Duomo), like most in Italy, was built and added to over a period of centuries, so you can admire Gothic and Renaissance features including some fine tapestries and paintings. The town's earlier cathedral (built in the tenth century), San Fedele, is another fine sight, as are the tall nine-hundred-year-old gateway, Porta Vittoria, and the Romanesque church Sant'Abbondio. The town's art gallery (Pinacoteca) is also worth a visit. For a short trip out of town, take the funicular up to the top of the hill above Como, where you can enjoy spectacular views.
Bellagio is a beautiful little town in a picture-perfect location on the promontory where Lake Como separates into two branches. The town is historic and charming, with a waterfront promenades, stately hotels and two gardens open to the public: Villa Serbelloni and Villa Melzi. Bellagio's tourist information offices are by the ferry jetty and in Piazza della Chiesa.

The Torno area
Torno lies just a few km along the road from Como to Bellagio and it's a real pearl of the lake.
Monuments you can't miss are Santa Tecla, San Giovanni and Villa Pliniana, while Monte Piatto is perfect for relaxing hikes.
Life there is just amazing: there's nothing better than a glass of wine at Bar Italia, just before a nice dinner or after a boat trip on the lake. The atmosphere is relaxed end enjoyable, moreover all you need is just a few steps far from the house (gas station, a mini market, a bank and bars and restaurants).
A place I simply love.
