The Lombardy region
Lake Como is a lake of glacial origin in Lombardy, Italy. It has an area of 146 km², making it the third largest lake in Italy, after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore. At over 400 m (1320 ft) deep it is one of the deepest lakes in Europe and the bottom of the lake is more than 200 metres (656 ft) below sea-level.
The lake is shaped much like the character “Y”. The northern branch begins at the town of Colico, while the towns of Como and Lecco sit at the ends of the southwestern and southeastern branches respectively. Varenna itself is situated at the intersection of the three branches of the lake.
Lake Como is a four season climate with hot summers and mild winters. The summer temperatures remain steady in the 80s and sometimes higher but the breeze off the lake keeps the air comfortable. The warmer weather brings a great opportunity for outdoor activities on the lake such as waterskiing, kayaking and sailing. Plenty of other outdoor activities also exist such as hiking and cycling.
Winter is pretty mild but does get down to the 40s and 30s therefore, winter attire is necessary. The winter which sees some bright sunny days occasionally also sees snow and frost but for the most part stays pretty temperate.
Varenna, described as the pearl of Lake Como is situated on the eastern shore of the lake. In the small town it is possible to enjoy romantic sunset strolls along the promenade and taste the typical dishes of the region in the small attractive lakeside restaurants.
You can take excursions into the mountains or just sit back and relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. You can enjoy a glass of local fine wine in the charming and historic square, or visit the town's main Villas (Monastero or Cipressi), or the Vezio castle.
It is possible to reach the opposite shores of the lake where Menaggio and Bellagio are located by ferry.
