Mention Lake Como these days and many people's thoughts will turn to Hollywood actor George Clooney who purchased a 30-room villa on the lake in 2002. Look closely and it's not hard to see what keeps bringing George, and plenty of other visitors from around the world, back to this stunning part of Italy.
Situated less than an hour from the centre of Milan, Lake Como is perfectly located for those looking to enjoy peace and tranquillity without having to travel too far. The city of Como is down at the southern end of the lake and is an ideal place to base yourself as you'll find a wide range of accommodation there, along with plenty of shops, great restaurants and cafes, and visitor attractions from churches and gardens to museums and palaces. Head north along the western shore during your holiday to Lake Como and you'll come to the resorts of Tremezzo, Menaggio and Lenno, all good choices if you're heading to this part of Italy.
Book a trip to Lake Como and whether you're planning a short romantic break or a family holiday, it won't take you long to relax and fall in love with what is often described as the jewel in the crown of Italy's lake district. Hire a boat and discover the best way to really explore the lake, before taking a tour of the impressive Villa Del Balbianello in Lenno, or perhaps Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio with its 50 acres of parks and gardens. Enjoy meals and drinks in bustling piazzas, savour the breath-taking scenery and enjoy the company of the friendly locals.
