Lake Como Reviews
Picturesque Area Jul 08, 2011
This has got to be the most stunning place visually that I have ever been personally.
Lake Como is about an hour away by a train from the city of Milan.
I went there during early June this year and stayed in a 3 Star Hotel on top of a hill with stunning views in a little village called Brunate, which required a tram ride to get to - called a Finiculare.
With it being on top of the hill, you get to see the view of the city of Como, the early morning mist over the city and the lake.
Most of the attractions on Lake Como has been inspired by scenes you get from movies like Star Wars 1: The Clone Wars and James Bond 007: Casino Royale where you see Daniel Craig in a villa next to a lake. That location is in Lake Como.
The easiest way to travel around all the villages and towns around the Lake would be by ferry. It does very regular runs, between stops and prices are affordable.
What makes the experience even better is that the type of ferry you get on is ever changing, from modern style ferries to classic ferries that has a pedal wheel on it and being able to see the engine in action inside the ferry!
Famous towns like Bellagio is in Lake Como. Celebrities have houses around the lake. It is a massive lake and I did not even get to go around all the areas of this massive Fork shaped lake.
I spent 4 nights there and was yearning for more, but alas on a tight time schedule, had to leave this place to continue moving down south of the country.
Como was the start of my journey in Italy. A beautiful start.
As I time went on and each city visited, my love for this country deepened.
Route: Milano - Como - Milano - Venizia - Firenze - Roma - Napoli/Sorrento.
2 incredible weeks. Lake Como was a great benchmark to start from

Como is a lovely town where i had a lovely day, i ate gelato, pizza, and then did what the locals do, found a grassy area near the lake and did NOTHING ! IT WAS PERFECT i suggest you take a blanket and maybe some wine and enjoy the day and people watch.
Como was the birthplace of a good number of historically notable figures, poet Caecilius, Pope Innocent XI, the scientist Alessandro Volta,and Cosima Liszt, second wife of Richard Wagner and long-term director of the Bayreuth Festival.
