  • On the lakeside there is a nice Green Park where children can run safely, little falls off a long walkway paved road that leads to the center of the Lake. At the end there is a lovely fountain with a bench that surrounds the fountain. The kids have fun and you can relax in the middle of the water.

  • Shooting with the ferry you'll find to be almost on the set of a movie. Who villas, gardens, views, all seen from the water takes on a unique connotation. Then the mountains create a truly magical effect. A must to do in como, already very refined town, the Lake can only be his natural mirror. Definitely take the ferry and make this tour! Spectacular
