Why Go on a Tour of Como

Set gracefully at the southern tip of the gorgeous namesake lake, the charming city of Como is a true breath of fresh air after visiting vibrant Milan during your Lombardy tour. The outstanding spot was established by Julius Caesar, and only this fact itself demonstrates its saturated historic past. The location of Como (just on the Italian-Swiss border) indeed provides great recreation opportunities, but the main city attraction is still Lake Como.

Being a natural marvel, endowed with some simply dramatic panoramas of majestic mountains and lush forests, reflecting in the crystal clear waters, stunning Lake Como has served as a source of inspiration for many Italians and travelers from abroad. Making your way to Como is a perfect choice for those wishing to enjoy the relaxing vibe of the region coupled with numerous exciting activities, like hiking, sailing around the Lake on a boat or even practice windsurfing. For more mind-blowing views, you may highlight your Como itinerary by going on a funicular ride, connecting the city of Como with Brunate and offering striking photo opportunities.

Speaking about sightseeing options, which Como gladly doesn't lack as well, the most atmospheric part of the city is the Old Town. During your Como tour, take a peaceful stroll around the Lake promenade and winding cozy streets, get inspired by colorful small houses harmoniously set at the foot of the mighty Alps, step inside the lovely Como Cathedral, which is the last Gothic cathedral ever built in Lombardy, and soak in the relaxing atmosphere of this enchanting Italian corner, tasting delicious gourmet cuisine in one of the local cafes. Now you see why an ideal Italy vacation can't do without adding Como to your travel itinerary?
