Rendez-Vous

Lungolago di Como

Waterfronts, Harbors / Marinas


Right in the morning, we go to Lake Como. It is very picturesque, the third largest in Italy and very deep! Lake Como is surrounded by mountains like a good diamond set. The azure sky, the azure sea - breathtaking with beauty! On the shore you can take the boat and continue your journey right on the water! The views are wonderful, don't forget to take a memory photo and shoot a video. Have you noticed how fresh the air is? Walk, walk, drink with beauty.

Caffè Monti

Cafés, Ice Cream Shops


In the fresh air, a brutal appetite is played out! We're having breakfast in a cafe on the coast, it's just a dream! What kinds, what delicious cakes! I hate to leave here until tonight, but there's so much to do.

Piazza del Duomo

Plazas


We'll start with the central square to see the city of Como. Magnificent square overlooking the wonderful, airy, cathedral. Its construction lasted for four centuries and was completed in 1770. Because of this you can see a clear mixture of styles - Gothic is next to Baroque, but this does not detract from its beauty. Look at the figures on the facade, and take pictures, take pictures.

Piazza San Fedele

Plazas


The dominant feature of St. Fidel's Square is the temple bearing his name. In the third century, St. Fidel preached in these places. Modest on the outside, this Romanesque basilica, inside, amazes with beautiful Baroque interiors with marble altar and magnificent frescoes. Non-surface light flows through high windows and transforms everything around. The square itself is very old, it used to have a grain market.

Funicolare Stazione Brunate

Cable Cars


Now let's take the funicular up the mountain. Wonderful views from a bird's-eye view of the lake and the city. You can see the emerald domes of the cathedral. And the view of Lake Como is wonderful! The lake is as clear as a shimmering crystal, then in a light foggy haze. The nature here is amazing, because this is the North of Italy, almost the border with Switzerland, and even in the mountains. If you go to the right after climbing the mountain, you will find yourself on the observation deck, it also offers a wonderful view of the lake. It's a great place to relax.

Trattoria Dei Bracconieri

Diners


Right here upstairs, and we'll have lunch. What marvelous views you can see here! And the dishes are just a fairy tale. Immediately felt, cooked from the soul. Rest and enjoy the moment.

Lido di Villa Geno

Beaches


Downstairs, we go to the beach. Rest on the full program! Sunny baths and fresh air, wonderful!

Villa del Grumello

Parks


On the coast of Lake Como chic villas. One of them is Villa del Grumello, built in the XVIII century. It was reconstructed in the 2000s and now it is happy to see that various conferences, master classes, concerts and educational events are constantly held there. Going back to tradition, the chic stables and greenhouses have also been restored here. So now to see everything, let's take a walk in the park.

Ristorante Kincho

Argentinian Restaurants, Pizza Places


It would be nice to have dinner after the walk! Again we choose a place overlooking the lake and are located outdoors. Great place and hot Argentinean cuisine. The service is unobtrusive and cordial.
