Planning A Luxury Escape At Lake Como
Organize your accommodation

There are a lot of great spots to stay all around the lake, and it’d be easy to pick once you know what it is you want to see while you’re there. If you’re planning a museum tour, you might want to be closer to Como City itself, whereas some might prefer somewhere more remote.
If you’re here for a food tour and want to enjoy the picturesque scenery while you eat, Lake Como has everything you could want. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a meal on the lakefront or eat surrounded by beautiful gardens, there are a number of spots that are available to you all around the lake. Nothing beats topping off your day like eating at a restaurant with such an incredible view, and you’ll find that easily no matter where you’re visiting around the lake.
Museums and monuments
If you’re here to enjoy some of the history and not just the views, then there’s plenty of that to see, too. You could spend an entire week touring the museums that this location has to offer, from Villa Carlotta to Tempio Voltiana, to Pinacoteca Civia and more. Aside from museums, there’s plenty of old architecture that might interest you, like the countless cathedrals that everyone should be visiting during their stay. Lake Como is a sightseer’s dream, and you would have a very difficult time seeing everything during your stay.
Spending time on the lake
Lake Como isn’t just a great place for what’s around it, but spending time on the lake is a wonderful experience in itself. There’s no better place to take in all of your surroundings and the scenery than the lake itself, and how you choose to do that is up to you. Whether you take one of the many boat tours around the lake, hire a boat to sail, go kayaking, or try another form of water sports, Lake Como has them all to offer. Touring the lake can take an entire day if you’d like it to, and with all, there is to see, you wouldn’t want to rush it.
