Lake Como

Tourist information on the towns of Lario

Lake Como covers an area of 146 km², it has a characteristic reversed Y shape due to the three branches that compose it: Colico to the North, Lecco to the Southeast and Como to the Southwest. The climate is generally mild and humid, favouring the growth of a rich and varied vegetation. Picturesque and characteristic are the towns bordering on the Como lake, where you can visit the beautiful villas with splendid gardens and go for a romantic walk among flowers and exotic plants.

The best way to discover the beauty of the lake is by navigating its waters. Thanks to the Lario Navigation Service you can admire the towns and villas, letting yourself be charmed by breathtaking views aboard a boat, a hydrofoil or a ferry. At the tables of many restaurants of the area you can appreciate excellent traditional Lake’s Como cuisine, varying from fish to cheese to desserts with perfect lake and mountain combination. For a few hour trip or a long vacation Lake Como always offers you the cues of art, culture and, of course, beautiful landscapes.

Lake Como Towns


Bellagio is Lario's central headland cape of Lario, by far one of the most beautiful tourist places, not only of Lake Como, but of the entire world. Its beauty has been praised, since the 16th century, by Italian and foreign visitors.



Colico is a very important tourist center, and proven by the optimal accommodation resources presented throughout its territory. The winds that characterize this area render the waters of Colico an excellent regatta site.


Como - Lake Como

Como is the city which gives the name to the entire lake, arriving by train to the Como Lago station, you can easily admire all of the marvels of the city going by foot. We recommend a visit to Brunate and Volta Temple.


Lecco - Lake Como

Lecco's fame is connected above all to Alexander Manzoni who, as a child, lived in the 18th-century villa of Caleotto (Manzoni Museum), and here was inspired when writing many pages of his book I Promessi Sposi (The Betrothed).
