Begun in 1876, this scenic square features a monument called "Weaver," which commemorates the 25th anniversary of Rome as a capital of the state, plus other important structures including the Teatro Adriano and Chiesa Valdese, built in a curious mix of Romanesque-German and Byzantine-nouveau.

This is Como-s main square that links the old city to the lake. While we were here there happened to be a comemmoration of the establishment of the Italian Republic, both a happy and a solemn moment.

Charming hub of Lake Como, with shops & restaurants encircling it on 3 sides. The best view of the lake is directly in front of you. Nice to just sit, have a gelato & people-watch!! Can't miss it when you come!!

On the day we went, there was a horrible band playing in the piazza, with a female singer who was worse than horrible. To top it off there was a race car exhibit that every 10 minutes would rev the engine to annoying levels.

Plaza is right on the lake and appears to be a prime meeting place. See if you can find the Green Dragon!

We walked through this piazza to get to the Cathedral. There was a market happening with various vendors. Nothing special but a sense of the culture
