Italy – Experience Lake Como, Italy

Lake Como, Italy

Just half an hour from noisy, bustling Milan, Lake Como is a jewel-like oasis of tranquility, a magical combination of lush Mediterranean foliage and snowy alpine peaks. One of the best vantage points for this breathtaking view is in Piazza Cavour, on the banks of the lake in the town of Como. The cathedral here is often cited as the best example of transitional architectural styles: to immediately understand what this means, compare the stunning gothic façade with the 18th-century dome above it.

LOCATION
Lake Como (Lago di Como) is one of the famous Italian Lakes destinations, not far from Milan in the north of Italy. Lake Como is long (50km), slender and extremely deep. The southern end forks into two long ‘legs’, with the picturesque town of Bellagio situated on the promontory between them.

CLIMATE
According to the Koppen climate classification, Como, although in a Mediterranean area, does not enjoy a typical Mediterranean climate, but has a humid subtropical climate instead. Winters are usually dry and cold with averages in the low 40°Fs (~4–6°C), while summers are moderately wet and hot, with averages in the high 70°F (~24–26°C) range. Humidity levels are high all year round.
