Lake Como is quite a big lake in the shape of the letter Y or rather of an upside down tuning fork. Driving north from Milan, it takes only around an hour to get to the spectacular Lake Como. With its splendid 17th century villas and gardens, surrounding snow-covered peaks of the Italian-Swiss Alps, and the magnificent Lake Como itself, this part of the Lombardy region of Italy is a tourist’s dream destination.
Lake Como (Lago di Como) is probably the most beautiful lake in Italy and definitely the most easily accessible one. Lake Como is quite a big lake in the shape of the letter Y or rather of an upside down tuning fork. At the southern end of the left fork lies the small town of Como, which can be reached in about half an hour from Milan by car – and better still by train from the Stazione Centrale, which leaves around every hour.
