Como, Italy
Located on the Italian-Swiss border, lovely Como, Italy charms from the very beginning. Being the most important town on the lake Como, each year the town attracts more and more people due to its outstanding historic heritage as well as a wide range of appetizing offers that this location demonstrates.

The most atmospheric part of Como is definitely the Old Town. The historic center is dominated by the majestic Duomo, which absorbed the main features of Renaissance and Gothic styles. If you have passion for history, you’ll also be impressed by exploring the ancient Basilica of Sant'Abbondio and Villa Olmo, a gorgeous neoclassical residence which dates back to the 1780s. Moreover, being in Como, you are definitely to pop in Templo Voltiano which houses a museum dedicated to Alessandro Volta who invented the electric battery.

Como, Italy is also known for its scenic funicular railway that connects the town with the village of Brunate since 1894. Taking a ride on this railway is one of the best ways to savour breathtaking views of the lake Como and the Alps.
