Additional Location Information
Truly beautiful ! Those words do not do this part of Italy justice. This jewel in the crown of Italy’s famous lakes is a haven of tranquility, superb cuisine, majestic snow capped mountains, courteous folk and style. In his ‘Charterhouse of Parma’ Stendhal described it as an "enchanting spot, unequaled on earth in its loveliness." Virgil called it simply "our greatest" lake.
Como is in Lombardy, 45km North of Milan and in the Province of Como. Como is at the tip of the southwestern branch of this lake. Como is only a few miles from the Swiss border and 20 minutes from Lugano.
Lake Como is 50 km long and west of Menaggio is where the lake splits in two. The mountains around the lake are 2000 m high and the lake up to 1350 feet deep, making it one of the deepest lakes in Europe.
When visiting Como, there are places to see and things to do. Like most Italian towns off the beaten track, these are not always obvious. The locals know where to go, but do not make it too obvious to strangers. Although when you arrive you are always welcome.
Como is really a city steeped in history and culture and its surroundings neighbours will support this. Fantastic villas and buildings abound. All accessible from the lake side routes.
The lakeside is the place everyone wants to be. The restaurants and hotels all have a special ambience that cannot be described, just experienced. The following are just a few of towns that can be explored by ferry, bus or car. They all have a special place in the Lake Como, or Lago di Como experience.....
Bellagio, often considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in Italy, lies at the apex of Triangolo Lariano, the land mass between Como and Lecco. With cobbled streets, a spectacular location, oleanders that ornament the streets and promenade, Bellagio is not a place to miss. Ferries frequent Bellagio arriving from Tremezzo, Menaggio, Varenna and Cadenabbia. Buses also run, which takes up to an hour from either Lecco or Como, but the roads are narrow and dangerous. Car ferries and hydrofoils also dock at Bellagio.
Some people say that Varenna is even more beautiful than Bellagio. Halfway up the Eastern shore this town is a cool spot in the heat of summer with overhanging trees and foliage. Almost devoid of the usual tourist offerings, it does have waterside cafes, with the town located up steep and narrow alleys.
Nesso is the beginning of a narrow, windy and steep road up to the mountains. It is up this way that the mouth of the Tuf and Nose water courses run.... Nesso is approximately 6km further on that Nesso.
4.5 miles up the North east side of the lake is Torno. This medieval village has the usual attractive collection of ancient buildings including the sixteenth century Villa Pliniana and the church of San Giovanni.
The next town along the water route is Argegno, from which the Swiss border can be reached by walking through the Val d'Intelve, a valley that rised to over 1000 metres which has spectacular views across the neighbouring Lake Lugano.
North of Argegno is the famous Isola Comacina, the only island in Lake Como. The ferry stop at Sala Comacina is opposite the island. Not like the beautifully manicured gardens of the Lakeside Villas, this Island is a little wild, uninhabited except for some artists. It has several ruins of long disused churches and has been historically used as a safe refuge for wealthy Italians in times of strife. The main attraction however is the exclusive and only restaurant "Locanda dell Isola Comacina", famous for their flambeed liquers!
