LakeComo Travel Guide

by our Italy expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanGlacial in origin, Como is one of the deepest lakes in Europe – and certainly one of the most beautiful. A 50 km elongated ‘Y’ shape, it is 400 metres in depth and despite its mountain location the bottom is far below sea-level. Since Roman times, elegant lakeshore villas have been built and occupied by sundry royalty, millionaires and celebrities – even a James Bond villain (Casino Royal). Lauded by poets and writers such as Shelley and Mark Twain, it was key destination in the 19th century ‘Grand Tour’. In summer, countless ferries make for a port-hopping inland cruise vacation – pick at random from Bellagio, Cernobbio, Varenna, Brienno, Argegno, Torno as spectacular destinations.
