LAKE COMO


LAKE COMO

Lake Como, in the region of Lombardy, is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. Leave your car parked for a few days if you have one, and enjoy the boat rides to the lakeside communities, of Bellagio, Menaggio, Varenna, Tremezzo, Lenno and, of course, Como. You might run into George Clooney along the way! There are many beuatiful villas to visit including Villa Carlotta and Villa Melzi. When you decide you might like a drive, get the car and take the short ride to Switzerland just north of Lake Como. You can also venture to Milan if you crave the big city. Bellagio is the heart of Lake Como and sits in a beautiful location. There are good restaurants which feature fresh water fish as well as traditional pasta dishes. Varenna is also worth a visit and has a lot of charm, shops, hotels, etc. Sprimg is a beautiful time to vist lake Como. Let the journey begin!
