Ossuccio is a small charming village on the western side of the lake and is famous for its many ancient churches and also for its Sacred Mount (UNESCO heritage). It sits opposite Isola Comacina (the only island in the Como Lake). The distance from Como is approximately 30 minutes by bus/car. Down by the lakeside there is a grass area which has a small snack-bar (open in summer season only) where you can sunbathe, or sit and have a cool drink or even go for a dip in the lake if you wish.
