Lake Como

End of April, we went to Lake Como (North Italy), the lake is very beautiful, different from Lake Annecy, it has a mediteranean feel with all the exotic flowers, trees and the Italian colours are lovely.

Unfortunately, the weather was not so great during our 3 days stay but we still enjoyed it very much. It is easy to travel by boat from one place to another, we visited Bellagio, Varenna and Como.

The villages, villas and gardens are beautiful, enjoy the dolce vita!

Also known as Lario, is the third largest of the Italian lakes (after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore). With a maximum depth of approximately 410 meters (448 yards), Lake Como is one of the deepest lakes in Europe.

Its characteristic shape, reminiscent of an inverted Y, results from the melting of glaciers combined with the erosive action of the ancient Adda river. This led to the formation of the two southern branches, in the midst of which there is the world popular Bellagio.

Located at the foot of the Alps, Lake Como provides one of the most picturesque sceneries in the world.

The food as most places in Italy is very nice, you will find some nice Lake Fishes, ice creams!

Enjoy a Spritz on a terrase!
