Lake Como is the third largest lake in Italy and is located just at the foot of the Alps – making it the perfect place to go if you’re looking for a completely unique and breathtaking setting for your vacation.
Try something completely new
If there’s ever a time to try something you’ve never done before, it’s when you’re on vacation. When it comes to a vacation in Lake Como, watersports are the perfect activity to try, and you won’t find a better place for it. Whether that’s windsurfing, kayaking, sailing, or otherwise, there’s plenty to try out while you’re there. Even if high-octane sports isn’t your thing, an afternoon of kayaking out on the lake can be the perfect way to relax out on the lake and soak in the views. No matter what it is you’re looking for, you can find it while you’re out at the lake.
Spend a day at Como
Of course, on the shore of the lake, there’s the city of Como. There’s easily a full day of activities and sights to see while you’re there, like the Como Cathedral, the Lakeside Gardens, the Vola Museum, the Life Electric monument, and more. On top of that, to top off your day, there are a number of restaurants and hotels to make your time there even more special. Eat with a view of the lake, and make it a day to remember.
If that’s not enough to satisfy you, you could even book yourself a tour of the lake, starting from Como city itself, which is great if you’re making Como city your first visit – giving you a good idea of where you could go for the rest of your vacation.
Relax at Villa Carlotta
Sometimes the best thing you can do while on vacation is nothing. It’s the time to be taking it easy, and you don’t have to spend all day every day on the move constantly. It’s a good idea to find a place that’s nice to relax in, and just do nothing. Further up the lake from Como, at Villa Carlotta, you’ll find great Botanical Gardens. This is the perfect spot to have a walk around, get something to eat, and just take it all in. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful spot, and it’s a must if you’re going to be spending a vacation at Lake Como.
If there’s more you’d like to do than just visit the gardens, there’s a unique museum for you to visit right there, with its own art collection waiting for you to come and see it. Thanks to both the indoor and outdoor attractions, this is a great spot to visit rain or shine.
