The most important centre is Como, the city that gives its name to the lake, with its beautiful monuments, the lovely old town and its picturesque views. If boats and hydrofoils are an excellent opportunity to see the city and fully enjoy the beauty of the landscape, in order to enjoy a broader view, there isn’t a more suitable option than the funicular railway that connects Como to Brunate. The second most important city is Lecco, particularly famous for being the city of The Betrothed. Equally impressive are the villages of the lakefront such as Cernobbio, home to large elegant villas like Villa d’Este and Villa Erba, and Bellagio, with its attractive scenery. Island Comacina is almost unknown but very charming: this small green jewel is surrounded by the waters of the lake, where settlements from the Roman period have been found. Ossuccio, a village that boasts a beautiful Romanesque church, is also interesting. As for Lecco side, instead, you can’t miss Lenno and Varenna: its path along the lake, dotted with bars, ice cream parlours and restaurants, starts from Villa Monastero and arrives at the ferry slip.
