LAKE OF LEGEND
For centuries this exclusive enclave has been a celebrated destination for royalty, aristocrats and celebrities to play and enjoy the unparalleled beauty of Italy’s northern lake region. Based at the foothills of the Alps and offering dramatic scenery of the surrounding mountains and the crystal clear waters, Lake Como’s iconic character and natural beauty are uniquely atmospheric and impressive.
The medieval village of Torno sits at the tip of a promontory at the southern end of the lake a few miles north of Como and a short boat ride or drive from Bellagio. The picturesque, car-free village is crossed by a tangle of alleys at the historic center where you’ll discover the ancient and well preserved churches, piazzas and architecture.
Dotted with charming villages and spectacular villas along both legs of the lake, the eponymous town of Como is at the southern most tip of the western branch. The busy waterfront city has a long history and orbits around the “centro storico” old town, with picturesque piazzas and historic duomos, cafes and a more lively urban feel.
A great launching spot for exploring the region, the ferries are the best way to take in the many lake vistas and visit the famed towns of Bellagio, Tremezzo, and Varenna.
