What people say

"Como is the main town situated at the southernmost tip of the lake. Though Como is often overlooked, it's worth stopping by here if you have time to explore it at a relaxed pace. Stroll the cobbled streets with boutiques and restaurants, visit the Duomo, and take in the lake views. If you don’t have much time though, it can be skipped. This is a good place to base yourself if you don't have a rental car because it's a transportation hub and has plenty of restaurants to choose from, but it doesn't have the tranquil environment that other lakeside hotels in smaller villages do. Drive in or take public transportation. "

"Sitting in a lush if crowded basin at the southern tip of its namesake lake, Como is a self-confident and historic town, established by Julius Caesar as an Alpine garrison and Roman holiday resort in the 1st century BC. "
"Really beautiful city where you can go shopping! If you take the ferry from Como to Menaggio or Bellagio you have a very beautiful boat tour of 2 hours for a very low Price!"
