Lago di Como Local Customs: 7 reviews and 12 photos
Nope - not a shy feather here. If you stop while no one else is feeding them, it is their custom to let you know you are supposed to be there at the Lake with bread in hand for them - they can be quite vocal about it!
Hanging out at Cernobbio
This group was undisturbed by the proximity of the boats and people disembarking. Maybe that's just what they were gathered to do - people watching - its contagious along Lake Como.
Hope you can see him there on the column
As I climbed the dock at Cernobbio, I glanced toward Villa d'Este and happened to see this gentleman fishing - right there between the dock and the Villa. You don't see many people fishing now on the Lake - not like a few years ago. They did announce that the lake is badly contaminated, so I wonder what someone might catch that would be fit to eat. I do see "lake fish" on the menu at various restaurants and - I just wonder??
Villa along the Passegiatta Lino Gelpi displays modern art works in front of the old villa. Further evidence of this accommodation is the trend to decorate one's ancient home in minimalist decor - the younger people especially enjoy this mix.
This one is in use
Most of these boat access entranceways are no longer in use - however, it was - and still is - a grand custom. Just navigate your boat - not just to the dock - but into the underground entrance to your villa.
