From here, get acquainted with an entire schedule of cheap boat service that navigates the lake's more northern regions to other such scenic towns as Mennagio, Bellagio and Varenna.
Beyond Como's sweeping views of the lake, don't leave without making time for a cable
car ride up the mountain for stunning shots of the surrounding area. Also take time to explore Como's richly decorated Gothic-Romanesque cathedral, the old Roman town wall, as well as the town's handful of art and history museums.
