Experience Lake Como with us

If you've got a Ferrari, you might well take it for a spin in and around the lakes; for a visit to Lake Como is a visit to where the great and good go. A parked-up Ferrari is not uncommon as you explore around this beautiful lake area. Lookout at the scene, and you'll see mountain backed shores, beautifully manicured gardens and historic palaces. You'll also head through attractive villages where ancient paths led off into the Italian mountains. No wonder filmmakers chose this destination as the backdrop to much of James Bond's Casino Royale. Daniel Craig may have left the area, but that shouldn't stop you from exploring and enjoying this stunning region. Absorb the atmosphere and indulge in Italian hospitality. You're in one of Italy's most popular destinations, after all. Oh, and keep a lookout for those Ferrari's!

Best time to visit
Like much of Italy, the best time to visit Lake Como and the surrounding area is between April and October. This is when you'll find the best weather, and it's when the rich and famous visit! July and August are the busiest times, of course, when it's high season.
Getting around
Being in the mountains and unless you are on an organised tour from nearby places, Lake Como isn't the most accessible destination to get to, unless you have a car. Otherwise, you're relying on public transport. You can catch the train which comes into both Como and Lecco from places like Milan. If you can't hire a car, then taxi's will be costly! Car hire is probably your best option.
Money saving tips
Lake Como can be an expensive region to visit, so to save on the pennies taking an organised tour is the best way to see and enjoy the area.
