Top 5 things to do in Lake Como

Top 5 things to do in Lake Como

From romantic beaches to family-friendly attractions and historic gems, it’s easy to do as little or as much as you like on holidays to Lake Como.

  • The impossibly pretty town of Bellagio is a jumble of narrow, cobbled alleyways, charming shops and elegant restaurants. Hop on the Bellagio Express train for a relaxing ride with sweeping views along the way.
  • Villa Carlotta rests within botanic gardens that include a bamboo grove, a fern valley and colourful orange trees. Impressive neoclassical architecture houses a valuable collection of statues, paintings and furniture.
  • Follow the ancient mule track of Sentiero del Viandante through olive groves and villages with spectacular views across the lake. Tackle the entire route of around 50 kilometres or choose signposted segments.
  • Whether you charter a private boat, join a sightseeing tour or catch ferries, Lake Como’s bewitching scenery is best viewed from the water.
  • Topped by a white church and a famous restaurant, Isola Comacina is the only island in Lake Como. Once the site of a medieval settlement and a Roman fort, you’ll see ruins among the lush greenery.
