  • We discovered this island by chance by stopping in the village of Sala Comacina. Down to the Lake we found a small Pier to lead us to the island. The crossing is paying off and access to the island also once happened. Being there in the morning around 9:30, we were the only ones. The island is laid out with paths to discover the old swinging. By going after the northern part of the island, we arrive at a small beach that overlooks the peninsula of the Villa Balbianello. It is starting afresh is made our chance: from Como and Bellagio boats stop on the island, dropping streams of tourists. It was time to leave.

  • The Isola Comacina, the only island in the Lake of Como, should be so a nice destination. A small Grove, a few ruins (in part from Roman times) and a beautiful view over the Lake of Como. At the end of the day, but also exactly! The taxi boat from Sala Comacina Island costs €8 (round-trip), the journey takes 2-3 minutes, with a total journey time of maximum 6 minutes so of just over €1 per minute, because the big trips across Lake Como are but cheaper and you can see clearly more. Then the next hit - €6 entry, to see the island at all. But OK, we have been in other botanical gardens (Brissago Islands) visited and paid admission there too, but what was then offered us €6 can be described only very floral with "Area with olive trees and ancient stones". There's nothing to see, meadow there is also free anywhere on the Lake, and olive trees are not exactly rare in this area. This is pure tourist rip-off, since Botany nor anything is to see interesting archaeological sites. On the island is still a restaurant and a bar (both belong together, but separately visitable), have left out the restaurant, after the two small scoops of ice cream and a box Limo €8,50 have cost. I have written more about the bar in the bar review.

  • A beautiful spot and interesting archaeological site but the only way there is by boat (or canoe) and for us the boat trip and was expensive and the admission price to the island hard to justify. The ...  more »
