Once in Lake Como, a unique experience is to take time to get to know the towns and villages all around the lake and on the surrounding mountains.
The city of Como is the best starting point to explore the third largest Italian lake.
Bellagio, Varenna, Cernobbio, Torno, Menaggio are some of the most famous locations.
A boat tour of the Lake is a must to see its luxury villas and beautiful gardens not visible from the street.
In spring, neoclassical Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo offers to visitors a mangnificent spectacle of rhododendros and azaleas. Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio, “the pearl of lake”, is the place to breathe history, art and culture of a glorious past when Leonardo da Vinci, poet Giuseppe Parini and Queen Victoria used to spend their time here. Villa Melzi‘s gardens (open from March 25th to October 31st) are worth a visit, especially in fair weather.
