About Italian Lake Como

From Milan to the foothills of the Alps, spectacular Lake Como in Italy is the heart of Italian romance and history. Located in Lombardy, the lake has an area of 146 square kilometers, which makes it the third-largest lake in the country, just after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore.

Locally known as the Lake Lario, this natural gem used to be a popular retreat for wealthy people, but, eventually, Lake Como has become a remarkable spot for travelers of all bank account sizes. Nowadays, the territory around the lake comprises a number of luxury villas and lovely lakeside towns like Como, Bellagio and Varenna, waiting for you to be explored.
