Journey into one of world's most picturesque glacier lakes.

Labeled as the most beautiful lake in the world by The Huffington Post (2014), Lake Como (Italian: Lago di Como) is a lake of glacial origin in Lombardy, Italy. It is the third-largest lake in Italy, after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore and the fifth deepest lake in Europe. One of its particularity is its characteristic "Y" shape, which forms the so-called "Larian Triangle", with the little town of Canzo as its capital. Lake Como has been a popular retreat for aristocrats and wealthy people since Roman times for its microclimate and environment. It has many artistic and cultural gems, as well as prestigious villas such as Villa Olmo, Villa Serbelloni, and Villa Carlotta.

Happy virtual travel!
