Lake Como

Unmissable destinations on Lake Como

Lake Como is an unmissable tourist destination. The mountains, its villas and luxuriant gardens frame a magical place. Elitis House is less than 30 minutes drive away from the city of Como, ideal for a brief excursion during your stay.

Villa del Balbianello

The timeless charm of this summer residence, now fully open to visitors, comes from its sensational gardens and interiors, rich in historical artifacts. The villa is still used today as the setting for many films, events and musical concerts.

Duomo di Como

Together with the Milan Cathedral and the Certosa di Pavia, the Como Cathedral is the largest place of worship in all of Northern Italy. Its design, which began in 1186, ended with the proclamation as the city's Mother Church 600 years later, in 1770.


This peaceful village holds a great view and is easily accessible from the city center (7 minutes) thanks to a convenient funicular. From Brunate you can undertake numerous trekking routes and simple walks, moments of ideal outdoor activities before taking refuge in the golden comfort of Elitis House.

Varenna, for those who dare a little more

With an hour by ferry from the city of Como it is possible to reach Varenna, a small town whose position gives it a truly suggestive panorama.
