  • There is on this small island is not so much to see but you can here though. Less than an hour we were around and we were at that time almost all alone on the island. It was a pleasant walk with some steep sections.

  • Training small island, isola Comacina was in the middle ages a stronghold independent. The ruins of the ancient Basilica of Santa Eufemia testify to ancient remains recalled annually in San Giovanni Festival.

  • The Comacina island is one of the main attractions of Lake Como. It can be easily reached from Ossuccio (5 minutes by boat), the entrance is free of charge (6 euros). Strolling along the paths you can admire the Church of San Giovanni Battista, the Basilica of Sant'Eufemia, the Church of Santa Maria with porch and the Church of San Pietro in Castello. The details of the artists in the Rationalist style. Finally there is also a restaurant on the island, I think expensive. Worth visiting this little Pearl.

  • The island is beautiful, but in my opinion is €6 entrance per person to much for what you get. The church was closed and the old ruins where not accessible even if information signs where inside. Some parts of the old church are behind iron bars which is a pity.
  • Glorious!! Beautiful to walk around, take in the views and enjoy a picnic! The cafe and restaurant is very overpriced but the island itself is a treasure not to be missed!
  • Super
  • The Comacina island is situated in the municipality of Tremezzina, at the Cove on the West coast of the como branch between Argegno and the peninsula of Lavedo, in the waters off la Zoca de l'oli (hollow): the territory north of Italy where, in a particularly mild climate, is cultivated the olive tree and olive oil is produced. The inhabitants of Ossuccio is still called el castell (Castle).

  • Lovely quaint island is mostly very clean and organized. The shuttle service runs every 30 minutes from ferry and Ossuccio or from Sala Comacina. It costs 7 euros return and closed at 17. To visit the island it takes other 6 euros on hacking a bit in the total cost of tourist walk but well worth it. The ticket price includes a visit to the Museum which is located in Ossuccio.
