"Lake Como" Como by islaazul

Como Travel Guide: 323 reviews and 853 photos

Lake Como (Lago di Como) is a breathtakingly beautiful lake, just one hour from Milan. The lake slender and extremely deep. The southern end forks into two branches.

Villa d'Este, pictured above, is one of the most famous hotels on the lake. Herb Caen famously said, "The precise location of heaven on earth has never been established but it may very well be right here."

Visitors since the days of the Roman Empire have admired the scenery and relaxed in luxurious villas of the lake. Today, the towns around the shores are popular with tourists, walkers, cyclists and swimmers.
