Showing 1-38 of 1,534 in Lake Como
In the heart of the Lombardy region of Italy, at the base of the Rhaetian Alps, lies Lake Como with the beautiful city of Bellagio on its central peninsula. Once a fishing village, later the destination for the luxurious summer estates of Italian aristocrats and dignitaries under Napoleon, Bellagio's legendary grace draws visitors from all over the world.
Along the shores of Lake Como in both directions from the center, there are quaint villages where fishermen haul in their catches and cats lounge in the sun. When you visit the area, spend some time exploring the towns of Como and Lecco. Stroll the colorful market areas. Sample the legendary food and wine of Lombardy. Visit the churches, historic castles and country estates with magnificent gardens. And of course, enjoy the lake. There are plenty of charter tours and sunset champagne cruises that can take you out on the water and around Isola Comacina, Lake Como's only island.
Here are a few additional suggestions as you plan your trip:
Whatever time of year you visit, you'll have no trouble finding a place to stay in any of the towns and villages that border the lake. Find an elegant condo in Bellagio or a lakeside villa on the shores of Domaso. You can also easily find a cabin in the hills further inland as well.
