This is my idea of a paradise. I would be happy to spend a couple of weeks here, moving from one town to another, getting up into the mountains to enjoy the view, then getting back down to feel the freshness of the lake. In...More

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

The Italian lakes are something rather special. And they were special to the Victorians and Edwardians of Great Britain who included them in the Grand Tour. Lake Como is a very deep (up to 1000ft depth) glacial lake created by a retreating glacier and is...More
