Roam around the streets to see the old buildings in a range of periods - prominent feature of the Como skyline when looking from across the lake and huge when looking down from the viewpoint on the hill above is the 14th century Duomo in the heart of Como near Piazza Cavour.
The Duomo has 15th and 16th century reliefs, paintings and tombs and 18th century dome by Turin's famous architect Juvara.
Next door is the 13th century Broletto - Town Hall - in its pink, white and grey stripes and Torre del Commune.
