Lago di Como is a wonderful destination. It's a large lake surrounded by picturesque villages and along the lakeside, beautiful Italian architecture from villas to pallazzos to architectural detail that's you'd find only in Italy. Taking a boat-ride from Como or Cernobbio to Bellagio on...More

I've visited the Lago di Como several times, the best is in the low season where there are a little less tourists. The Villas and their gardens are the most interesting places to visit, a boat tour gives a nice overview of the area. History,...More
