Lake Como is undoubtedly one of the most popular lakes in Italy and one of the most romantic places in the world, this makes it a dream destination for honeymoons, anniversaries and other special occasions.
There are few lakes in the world that can capture one’s gaze without tiring.

Laura SanvitoFounder

Lake Como is the perfect day trip, less than 1 hour from Milan, as well as the perfect point of departure to visit many iconic cities of art, the great northern lakes, from Switzerland, with its scenic Alps to the Mediterranean sea.

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.

The lake with its fascinating beauty and the mountainous backdrop is 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. So much so that several foreign writers have penned words celebrating the wonders and uniqueness of this lake: Goethe, Stendhal, Balzac, Mark Twain, Ezra Pound and Virginia Woolf.
