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. Many characteristic small hamlets dot Lake Como’s shores. Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Cernobbio, with their magnificent waterfront villas are a must to visit, a great mix of art, nature and history.
