About Lake Como

Besides being the most famous of the Italian Lakes, Lake Como is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It has absolutely stunning views of the majestic mountains with their deep valleys running through them. The clear lake water is mesmerizing and varies in colour from light green to dark green/blue. On the rare occasion when the lake is still, it mirrors the magnificent scenery that surrounds it. The towns and villages along the lakes shores are very picturesque and each one of them feels like it could be home to any number of celebrities. In summer you will find villages inundated with tourists from all around the world. However you will notice that certain areas of the lake attract different nationalities.

The Milanese tend to come to the lake for their weekend break as well as to escape the smothering city heat.
