  • A superb cathedral o see absolutely to Come. The tour is free, but you are being urged to donate € 1 for the restoration of the Cathedral. No obligation, but in return you receive a leaflet that serves as support during the visit.

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.
