a ka Chernobyl :)))))

Cernobbio is a veeeeeery CUTE little town on the Como lake, very close to the town of Como.
Its main characteristics are amazing villas and very pretty town, located not only on the lake shore, but also on the hills above.

The origins of Cernobbio date back to the XIII century. It was a place of plundering and invasions on the part of the Spanish. Today, the town is a holiday resort as well as a well known industrial centre.

It comes right after Como on the lakeside, actually, Como continues into Cernobbio, and you can practically walk there, they merged into one town in fact. Cernobbio is a lovely picturesque town with narrow streets, colourful houses, nice pier and lake boat transport station, wonderful square with some heroic monument and incredibly nice restaurant all in glass right there.
It's a place of many chic conferences, as they're all held in the famous pompous villas.
This is the site of the fictional Villa Baglianello, the elegant family-home-run-pensione featured in the film "A Month by the Lake." Nearby is one of the grandest hotels in all Europe, the Villa D'Este, whose rooms are almost like museum galleries and whose grounds boast Italy's only "floating swimming pool" (it actually sits atop the lake). Up the road is Toriggia, where you can visit Villa Passalacqua.

I find the name Cernobbio hilarious, because it reminds me incredibly of the famous Ukrainian nuclear disaster spot Chernobyl, as the prononuce is almost identical! :) So I always say I've been to Chernobyl. :))
