    Lake Como is the 3rd largest lake in Italy after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore. It's a glacial lake and is one of the deepest ones in Europe. This is the Lombardy region of Italy and with Switzerland just over the next ridge.

    Lake Como has been a popular retreat for aristocrats and wealthy people since Roman times, and a very popular tourist attraction with many artistic and cultural gems. It has many villas and palaces, of which many famous people frequent or live. We didn't see George Clooney during our stay, but Gayle and I did randomly meet Lily Allen, her Husband Sam and their 2 lovely daughters.

    Gayle and I saw Lake Como from our Bedroom window at B/B La CA' NOEVA in Gittana, from our Hotel Room at Villa Capresi, walking along the water in Varenna and Bellagio, and from a series of mid-Lake boats that plied these beautiful waters. I also suggested that we try a little mountain hiking and see Lake Como that way, but after a certain recent Seiser Alm hike in the Dolomites, Gayle vetoed that idea.

    One odd and unexpected aspect of our experience was the haze. A local tried to explain it in terms of warm air temperatures meets cold water, but I wonder more about air pollution in general. Lake Como is still a gorgeous place to be, but I think the haze was hiding something even more amazing.

    North of Milan and about an hour train ride you will find Lake Como. Beautiful lake surrounded by green hills, fresh air, nice restaurants and boutique shops. I hear this is where the celebrities go when vacationing in Italy.

    Lago di Como is one of the more beautiful parts of Italy. Nestled in the mountains, you can swim here in the summer, if you don't mind slightly rocky beaches. The Northern Italian food is fabulous, with polenta, mushrooms and game meats being the stars. Bellaggio is most posh of the many towns surrounding the lake (this is where George Clooney has a home) but Como itself is charming as well and slightly less discovered.

    Nice location, explore the surrounding areas but of course also the town centre. There are various restaurants, bars and coffee shops around - give it a go also try the smaller ones.

    When I think of Lake Como I think of blue blue water, green hills covered in trees and the terrific lunch I had of polenta with gorgonzola. It was fun to walk around the town of Como and just be out in the country. It's an easy day trip from Milan on the Milan-Switzerland train.

    After spending a few days at Lake Maggiore I traveled to Lake Como, a captivating lake that is shaped like an upside down Y. I stayed in Como, which is the largest town on the lake. It proved to be an authentic, rustic town that is loaded with charm. I took a ferry that stops at several small towns along the lake. I hopped off, explored the cobblestoned streets, enjoyed some Processo and of course, indulged in Italian delicacies. An incredibly relaxing, beautiful day.

    The Lario, more commonly Lake Como is a lake of glacial origin in Lombardy natural, shaped by successive glaciations, which covers the territories of municipalities in the provinces of Como and Lecco.

    Beautiful! So close to Switzerland (shop the designer outlet in Switzerland), and only a hour or so to Milan! Must eat at Silvio's in Bellaggio! Delicious food, great service and
    great views! You can stay in the guest houses at grand Hotel Villa Sebelloni that include kitchenettes for a reasonable price and includes the grand hotel's ammenadies!!

    One of my favorite places in the entire world. I really can't capture Como's appeal in words. Amazing hiking, the best food, and a relaxed culture makes all of the towns surrounding the lake wonderful destinations.

    There is not a lot of things to do in Como since it is mostly a fishing area.
    But, it is still very nice to visit.
    We slept there one night and just walked around and watched the Italian fishermen.

    This is the lake where George Clooney bought a house, and with good reason. One of the more beautiful lakes I've been to in Italy. You can rent a car in Milan and drive there - about 2 hours I think. This allows you to spend nights in several of the different cities as you make your way around the perimeter of the lake. Lots of tiny little towns and beautiful places to eat. The ferries run across the lake - so you can go to other towns easily.

    Loved it and can't get enough of it.

    Nice and warm, the lake, the mountains, restaurants, designer boutiques, brilliant (and doable) hiking and laid back Italians.

    Main towns to visit are probably Como, Bellagio, Menaggio, but I personally prefer smaller towns dotted around the lake (+ they tend to be cheaper).
