Introducing holidays to Como
Como sits on the shores of Lake Como, a beautiful lake in Italy that has been a popular retreat since Roman times and remains a favourite with A-list celebrities like George Clooney. Pretty Como is a fantastic base for exploring the fairytale villages around the lake, as it’s the starting point for ferries and steam boats. It’s also the largest town, so has plenty of boutiques, cafés and restaurants where you can sit out on the waterfront and soak up the views. Take the funicular up to Brunate to enjoy the best views. You can also stroll the medieval streets, admire the stunning cathedral, and visit sumptuous villas and gorgeous gardens. Hop on the train to visit Milan, Italy’s vibrant fashion capital, if you’re in the mood for some shopping and nightlife.

Your guide to Como holidays
Lovely Como overlooks the shimmering blue waters of Lake Como in Italy, a famous retreat for aristocrats and celebrities for centuries. It’s got a charming medieval quarter, crowned by a splendid cathedral, and you can take the funicular up to Brunate to soak up the stunning views. As the starting point for the ferries and steam boats that ply the lake, it makes a fantastic base for exploring the enchanting little villages that sit on the shores of the lake. There are lots of inviting cafés, restaurants and shops, and there are direct trains to Milan if you feel like a day out in the fashion capital of Italy!
There are two lidos in Como, perfect for taking a refreshing dip on a hot summer’s day. The largest is the Lido di Villa Olmo, which is attached to one of the most beautiful villas on the lake. It has a beach, two swimming pools (note that swimming caps are required), one of which is for kids, plus a grassy area for sunning yourself with loungers, parasols and deckchairs. It also has a bar serving snacks and drinks. The other option is the Lido di Villa Geno, which is considerably smaller, but offers wonderful views of the elegant villas on the opposite bank of the lake. It also has a restaurant and is popular with families with young kids.
