Lake Como - Approximately 1hr / 35km away
In the shadow of the snow-covered Rhaetian Alps, Lago di Como (also known as Lago Lario) is the most spectacular of the lakes, few places can match Lake Como in both romance & beauty. This stunning oasis has captivated visitors for 100s of years and is home to extraordinarily sumptuous villas, often graced with breathtaking gardens. Wander through the regal botanic gardens of Villa Carlotta, overflowing with colour: from orange trees interlaced with pergolas to an abundance of azaleas & camellias. And there is Bellagio, the pearl of Lake Como, century-old buildings, stone lanes and picturesque cobbled stairways filled with shops showcasing the finest Italian wares.
