Lago di Como, Lombardy

#2 of 128 in Nature in Lombardy
The third largest lake in Italy and one of the deepest in Europe, Lago di Como is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. The rich and powerful have been coming here since Roman times. Lake Como is well-known for its attractive villas. Visit the 17th-century Villa Carlotta to explore its scenic gardens, agriculture museum, and significant sculptures. Villa del Balbianello, the final home of explorer Guido Monzino, is famous for its elaborate, terraced gardens. Today, you'll find a museum devoted to his work. Go for a walk on one of the nature trails around the lake, or try out some watersports. Hop aboard the ferry service to easily access the small towns and villages.

  • The fame of this place makes perfect sense, it is indeed beautiful! Try to take the ferry and take a cruise through the lakeside villages.

  • This resort is a resort that can be reached in less than an hour by train from Milan. You can enjoy lake cruises and more. We didn't have much time on the day trip, so we didn't cruise and climbed the observatory on the mountain railway. The city was not big and I didn't feel satisfied if I didn't have a relaxing stay. The townscape is close to Switzerland, so it was similar to Switzerland. The scenery is beautiful and I want to stay for a few nights and relax next time.
