While you are at Lake Como don’t miss the opportunity to spend time actually ON the lake. The most reasonable, pocket-friendly way to do this is by ferry. There is a full schedule of sailings each day; they are prompt, efficient and offer an excellence service. You can buy a day ticket at the port kiosks allowing you to explore different ports of call during your day out and really make the most of this experience. If you are at Lake Como for a special occasion, or if you just feel like spoiling yourself a little, hire a boat taxi or a speed boat for a few hours and imagine you are in a movie.
Lake Como is best seen from the water. I am in doubt about that. The villas stretch all the way down to the waters’ edge and the mountains look even more majestic from the lake. And if you are a keen photographer you will capture some shots that will make you dream of Lake Como until your next visit.
