Lake Como Resort Itinerary
Your Holiday Base: Lake Como Hotels
Situated on the western shore of this magnificent lake, looking out towards idyllic Bellagio, Cadenabbia, Tremezzo and Mezzegra -Tremezzina combine to form one delightful lakeside resort. Friendly cafes, colourful bars and some fine restaurants dot lake front promenades and stunning streets beyond. On the water, as well as pleasure craft of all shapes and sizes, steamers ply their trade to farther flung corners of the lake. Open-air lidos, shore-side sun terraces, and some of Italy’s finest gardens, including those of celebrated Villa Carlotta, vie for your time during the day. When evening comes, an air of elegant tranquillity, except in nearby Mennagio’s lively Piazza Garibaldi, complements the perfect days.
When you’re not enjoying the comforts and amenities of your chosen hotel or heading out on an optional organised excursion, Como’s shores offer a host of diversions. The energetic might stroll along the promenade or hike into the hills, rent bikes or perhaps even swim in the lake itself.
Rest and relax
Como’s rural surroundings are tailor-made for lazy days spent over morning coffee, a leisurely lunch, or an afternoon in the sun, ice cream in hand. Whether you choose to go no further than your hotel and its immediate surroundings, or to step aboard a lake steamer and head somewhere else for the day, there’s always the chance to simply sit and take in the beauty of this very special corner of the world.
Discovery and exploration
From idyllic Bellagio to tree-shaded Varenna, and from livelier Lecco to the lake’s main settlement Como Town and its historic funicular to mountain village Brunate, there’s certainly no shortage of places to visit during your stay.
