  • Accidentally happen to visit Lake Como being in Milan at the beginning of December. Everyone be sure to visit! Go 35minut by train. Return fare 9.60 euros. Beauty around will not be described in words. Be sure to take the cable car up the mountain! (5.50 euros in both sides). Walk up to the observation deck and look at Switzerland!) (Top cell phone welcomed in Switzerland)). Immediately after lifting, you can buy in the store cool magnets for 3-5 euros. At a local store at the bottom of the sample prosciutto in bulk and zhelato. Was Christmas fair, but time was short (everything in life should be sure to visit Lake Como. Boat trip worth 20 euro.

  • Want to share your impressions about my first trip to Lake Como and the incredible feeling of coziness in Como. Visiting this time Milan, one of the mandatory items that I wanted to do-see Como. Cant pick up the correct words that can describe my impressions. Amazing place! Amazing views from the observation deck ... Pure and intoxicating in its transparency. Beautiful nature, zamanivajushhie street cafes, architecture ... Piazza Duomo in Como envelops the magic. We went to the Cathedral Duomo-aesthetic pleasure. The use of different architectural styles, colours, atmosphere ... After the square began an animated show when on walls of buildings projections give Christmas mood-illustration of winter, cartoon pictures of animals, sparkling landscapes ... All this creates a mood. Only a couple of days since visits to this place, too fresh impressions and I long to describe his charms, so just say that of course recommend to everyone. And I hope that the times will come back to enjoy the warmth and tranquility of beautiful Italian province.
