Elegant, discrete, charming, the city of Como lies among the hills at the end of one of the branch of the lake.
The old town is partially surrounded by medieval walls with its towered gate.
The old centre has a pedestrian area which allow visitors to walk along the stony streets, through secluded piazza San Fedele with its Romanesque church, piazza Duomo and its fine cathedral.
Boats and hydrofoils leave from Piazza Cavour for nice trips around the lake. Seeing ‘the lake from the lake’ is definitely the best way to fully appreciate the beauty of the landscape, while the characteristic funicular takes you to the panoramic spot of Brunate, a natural balcony 800 mt. above sea level.
Como is home of important people: Pliny the Younger, Pliny the Elder, Alessandro Volta the inventor of the electric battery and the architect Giuseppe Terragni.
