The Province of Como is a province in the north of the Lombardy region, bordering Switzerland to the north. The city of Como is its capital and the entire province is made of 160 comuni. The territory is characterized mainly by the Bergamo Alps, but we find other relief here as well, such as hills or, most importantly, the Lake Como. The most important UNESCO World Heritage site here is the Island of Comacina, with the Sacro Monte of Ossuccio, but tourists are also interested in visiting the many medieval towns, nature trails or stay at one of Como's vacation spots.
Since Roman times, Lake Como has been a place of retreat for wealthy people and has become, over the years, a popular place for tourists. The Lake has many palaces and villas and many famous people have (or have had in the past) homes along the Lake: Madonna, George Clooney, Gianni Versace and others. They don't call it one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe for nothing!
The weather in the area here is quite warm all year long. It rarely snows and the sun is up most of the time so you can enjoy your stay at the lake in any season.
Tourists usually come here to enjoy the magnificent landscapes, the interesting wildlife and relaxing spas. The main attraction is considered to be the town of Bellagio, where the lake divides...
