History

Lake Como or Lago di Como in Italian, lies in the northern region of Italy known as Lombardy (Lombardia) bordering on Switzerland and is approximately 40km from Milan (the capital of Lombardy region). Due to the location of the lake, it was used as a main trade route in Roman times between central Europe and Rome. This played a major role in its history, ensuring prosperity but unfortunately it also lured a succession of foreign invaders. Over the years, Lake Como has become more and more popular with both tourists and celebrities alike as it is in a fantastic location and is ideal if you are looking for for a romantic getaway. You will never tire of taking photographs as the scenery is outstanding; with its magnificent mountains and valleys and of course the many quaint villages with grand lakeside villas. For sports enthusiasts there are many things to do; walking or hiking and of course a multitude of watersports to choose from with many schools towards the northern part of the lake (Dongo, Domaso, Colico)where you can book lessons for sailing, windsurfing, diving, wake-boarding etc.
