The area of Lake Como is abundant in picturesque towns with narrow cobbled streets, breathtaking views, and lovely homes and gardens, best visited from late spring to early fall. Take a stroll through the city of Como to enjoy its history and architecture, then hop on the ferry and head north to visit other towns on the lakeshore.
However, there is more to do in this area than traditional sightseeing. Visitors can book a flight over the lake by seaplane or take the funiculare (hillside trolley) to Brunate and enjoy spectacular views from above. Extreme sports enthusiasts can enjoy paragliding off of Mount Nuvolone. Small and large groups alike can book boat tours with our concierge to enjoy the lake from the water, having fun spotting properties owned by the rich and famous (Donatella Versace, Madonna, and George Clooney, among others).
For the more adventurous, Lake Como also offers water-skiing, wind surfing, and wake boarding. Bikers will surely enjoy the natural trails that lead to the mountains or even hidden pebbled beaches. Go for a round of golf or tennis at one of the many locations across the lake region. Lake Como has something for everyone! With fashion-capital Milan just 45 minutes away, it’s no wonder that Lake Como also offers excellent designer shopping.
