COMO AND THE LAKES
Como with its lake attracts numerous celebrities from the international Jet-set for the beauty of the landscape, the amazing villas and the small and characteristic villages that surround it.
Since the 16th century it has been a holiday destination for Milan’s aristocratic families which is why some of the most beautiful and important Italian residences can be found along its shores.
For sports lovers, in summer, you can practice sailing, rowing, windsurfing, motor boating, water skiing, canoeing and kite-surfing. Thanks to air sports such as hang gliding and paragliding you can enjoy a privileged view of the lake and its surroundings. Rock climbing, splendid excursions, trekking, mountain biking and horse riding can also be organized. Let’s not forget golf that has a place of honor here with 7 internationally renowned courses.
In Cernobbio stands the sixteenth-century Villa d’Este, used by Alfred Hitchcock as the location of his famous 1926 film “Pleasure Garden”, while in Lecco Villa Manzoni, home of the Manzonian museum and the starting point of an itinerary on the traces of The Betrothed, is worth a visit.
Do not miss out on the beautiful Lake Garda either.
