  • In more than 25 years after the last visit to Castle Baradello I had the pleasant surprise to discover that the works carried out in the years 2000 have greatly improved the Interior of the Tower making it more accessible to reach the top, from where you can enjoy an amazing view (Lake, Monte Rosa, Milan etc.). Congratulations to the guide who accompanied us during the visit for his expertise and kindness.

  • I don't understand how it is possible to have only 3 and a half points and there are people who gave a single point. When you visit such places should be taken into consideration the historical period and its function. Is magnificent in every way, is "just a tower" but it was one that protected the old city (Comum before and Nova Comum) against attacks than any other city. VA imagined that served only as a vantage point. Not a castle, is Spartan (wasn't sure the bourgeoisie but the soldiers), is still intact, you may come to see it and it is very small, 10/15 minutes and we saw everything inside but you can get lost and we get excited in the top view where it's obvious the city, the Lake and where the sky is clean you can see in the distance also Milan and Monza monte rosa, towards Lecco, Varese, Como and Civiglio seem close and then not so high as it seems from the city. If you don't know the story not to appreciate it as it deserves and Como is a city historic/Romana, every Pebble has more stories to tell!

  • With friends and their children, we hit the road for Como Camerlata decided to trail to the Torre del Baradello and stop for a picnic ... uphill path, surrounded by greenery, with signs visible ... and just got on you can see the whole Como and the Lake ... breathtaking! There are tables available and baths ... the kids played and ate on the beach towels under the pine trees ... all very nice and pleasant!

  • Good place ,hre is one of the places that you can have bbq in Como
  • My favourite secret escape
  • The best place for a gorgeous view of Como Centre after Brunate. Medieval Tower used for surveillance. On the top you can see Switzerland, Milan, Varese and of course Como Centre and the lake. Must visit if you go to Como!
  • Lovely views of Como. We walked up from Camerlata on a Wednesday morning and had the place to ourselves, with just a squirrel for company. We couldn't get into the tower because it only opens on certain days, but I think the view is better here than from Brunate (off the funicular).
  • The view of the city and the Lake are stunning. The tower is worth a visit just to see it from the outside and enjoy a walk in the Park Green thorn immersed in nature just a short walk from the town. Pity that the tower is not open more often, so if you want to make it even better experience, ask first about the days and opening times!

Where to stay in Como

Indulge yourself by booking a luxurious suite at a lavish hotel right on the shores of Lake Como. Pricey hotels and private villas may provide an ideal lakeside setting, but you can save money by staying at a B&B in the city of Como itself. The city is much less expensive than the resorts of the so-called "middle lake," but be sure to book early. Even less expensive is staying in Milan, from which you easily access the lake district by train or car.
