About Lake Como

 

 

For over 2,000 years, poets from Virgil and Catullus to Tennyson and Longfellow have raved about the lakes of Lombardy, but it is impossible to do justice when describing the spectacular beauty of Lake Como without visiting and understanding it.
The lake is approximately 28 miles (45 km) long and never more than 2 miles (3 km) wide.
Private boats and ferries travel up and down the lake, offering views of the most important villas, such as Villa d'Este and Villa del Balbianello, Villa Pizzo and Villa Carlotta.From the pier of the scenic town of Cernobbio, a less-than-two-hour boat ride transports visitors to Bellagio, "Pearl of the Lake" - the most picturesque village of Lake Como.
