Lake Como: why?

Lake Como is undoubtedly one of the most popular lakes in Italy: there are few lakes in the world that can capture one’s gaze without tiring. Many foreign writers have penned words celebrating the wonders and uniqueness of this lake: Goethe, Stendhal, Balzac, Mark Twain, Ezra Pound Virginia Woolf.

​Lake Como is a treasure of nature, culture, wonderful landscapes and mouthwatering local food, evidence of an important historical and cultural heritage strategically positioned between the mountains and the lake.

The lake with its fascinating beauty and the mountainous backdrop are certainly the distinguishing feature of the entire area.
Considered as being among the most beautiful pre-alpine areas, the rugged mountains and valleys rising up from the lake conceal many breathtaking landscapes. Hiking enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with options catering for all levels from beginner to experienced mountain climbers.
