Como

On the old Regina road (today almost entirely walkable), designed by the Romans as a privileged way to the passes of the Alps, in order to trade with the Celts and which entirely runs along the lake, the city of Como, still retains the orthogonal design of the Roman military camp, with medieval walls well preserved, large doors and watchtowers (Porta Torre, Torre Gattoni, San Vitale). By the former “Casa del Fascio”, in Piazza del Popolo, a masterpiece by the rationalist architect Giuseppe Terragni, contiguous to the Rondinella, begins the city center. We are just steps from Piazza del Duomo, one of the largest cathedrals in northern Italy, adjacent to the Vicolo and the lakefront. The historic core still has traces of the Middle Ages, mixed with Renaissance and Neoclassical lines present between the narrow streets of the city center. To be seen are Piazza Volta and Piazza Mazzini, one close to another, with small restaurants and outdoor cafes, which introduce to a wide square on the lake, Piazza Cavour.

The Como Lake

The Lake of Como is able to enchant the tourists with many different needs: from those seeking social life to those looking for relax, from athletes to those who prefer to laze around and be lulled by the Lario’S Dolce Vita. The mountains that surround it, sink into the lake. The Lake and mountains are founded to create a unique environment, a corner of paradise that fascinates and enchants with its sights and irresistible scenery, its many treasures, such as villas and gardens that overlook its shores and the characteristic villages rich in history.
