Lake Como: Inspiration for romantics

Set in an idyllic landscape of mountains and rugged hillsides, and shrouded in an almost eerie calm, Lake Como has for centuries been the playground of the rich and has attracted visitors who come for relaxation, inspiration, walks in the hills or to go boating. The long and narrow lake, crafted into a wishbone shape by glacial erosion, offers fine views up to the Alps and down to the prosperous towns of Como and Lecco. Places of interest include the beautiful 14th Century Duomo and beside it, the 13th Century Town Hall in the town of Como, and the Villa Carlotta near Tremezzo - an elegant 18th Century Summer House known for its gardens.The delightful resort of Bellagio, on the cusp of the lake's two arms, has elegant lake-side promenades and cafés, brightly coloured with geraniums.
