Stories from the Lake – Lago Di Como, Italy

Lago Di Como is located in the north of Italy, close to the Swiss border.


It is the deepest lake in the Alps and the third largest lake in northern Italy after Lago Maggiore and Lago di Garda.




Canoes, sailing and fishing boats embark a journey across Lago Di Como from one of the branches of the lake - on the southeast side it's a mountain town of Lecco, on the southwest side it's a well-known city of Como.




The lake is surrounded by mountain ranges with sharp peaks. The colorful architecture of Lombardy - palaces, villas and townhouses with green, wooden shutters proudly represent the small but exceptionally charming Italian cities around Lago Di Como. These include among others Bellagio, Varenna, Cadenabbia, Menaggio, and Argegno.




Many cities around Lago Di Como are located just near the shore with small balconies, tropical gardens, historic monuments and long pedestrian streets offering direct access to the lake. At the same time, some villages are located high in the mountains surrounded by the forest and lush vegetation.




The colors of Lago Di Como are strongly visible in the architecture and mountain nature as well as in the approach of local people and the ordinary rhythm of the day in the northern Italy.


A presto, Lago Di Como!
