Known for its idyllic location on the shores of Lake Como and at the foot of the Alps, Como is one of northern Italy's most popular tourist destinations.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Como: Bergamo (Piazza Vecchia & La Citta Alta), Leolandia (in Capriate San Gervasio) and Santuario Della Madonna delle Grazie di San Martino (in Griante). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral of Como (Duomo), get to know the fascinating history of Greenway del Lago di Como, admire the natural beauty at Villa Carlotta, and admire the landmark architecture of Villa del Balbianello.

A favorite vacation spot for more than a century, Lake Como was once an exclusive retreat for local aristocrats and wealthy people. It is not only one of Europe's most beautiful lakes, but also one of the deepest at more than 400 m (1,300 ft). Surrounded by elegant villas, the lake has become a popular holiday destination for tourists because of its range of attractions, from landscapes, wildlife, and spas, to activities like sailing, windsurfing, and kite-surfing. The area has been an inspiration for artists since Roman times. English poet Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote, "This lake exceeds anything I ever beheld in beauty…It is long and narrow and has the appearance of a mighty river winding among the mountains and the forests."
