Culture and art in Lake Como


For culture lovers, Villa Olmo is highly recommended; set in a flourishing garden overlooking the lake, this villa has hosted international art exhibitions and conferences since 1925. Villa Erba located in Cernobbio is another must; home of international conventions, concerts and events; an architectural work of art that will not cease to impress visitors.

The city's local theatre "Teatro Sociale di Como" offers the public a wide range of dance, music and drama performances. One of Como's most important landmarks is the Roman pantheon inspired temple "Tempio Voltiano"; a neoclassical monument entirely dedicated to Alessandro Volta, the Italian inventor of the electric battery. Visitors cannot miss Como's astonishing Duomo, the last Gothic cathedral built in Italy; its works commenced in 1396 and ended in 1770.

Sport and leisure in Como


As one of the most popular lakes in Italy, Lake Como is filled with all kinds of adventure sports and outdoor activities– on the water, on land and in the air.

So unless you’re visiting the Lake for total relaxation or sightseeing, here are some of the most popular adventure sports and activities available on Lake Como: water sports such as sailing at the Yacht Club Sailing School Como, water skiing, windsurfing and canoeing.

For those who love the sun, beach and swimming, we recommend the Lido of Cernobbio with a swimming pool  and the lido of Como located within two magnificent villas: Villa Olmo and Villa Geno.  You can find also free beaches up to the lake. Lake Como is nestled between green valleys and mountains of over two thousand meters in altitude; surrounding the lake are miles of hiking and nature trails that wind through villages, forests and along the many beaches. The best way to discover and enjoy this heritage and natural landscape is to follow these trails either on foot, with a mountain bike or on horseback.

For families travelling with small children, we suggest a trip to Swissminiatur located on the shores of Lake Lugano in Switzerland with over 120 scale models representing Switzerland's heritage including the nation's most famous buildings, monuments and means of transport.

History of Cernobbio


Cernobbio stretches from the slopes of Mount Bisbino to the west lakeshore, few kilometres away from Como, along the old Via Regina (now State Road 340) and is one of the most charming tourist resorts on lake Como.

The first information about the town dates back to the 12th century. Traces of the medieval castrum are left in the urban system, which surrounds Piazza Castello: the tower of the fortress remained standing until the 17th century. Thanks to fishery, Cernobbio was so rich and wealthy in the Middle Ages that the hamlet was the residence of the Podestà and had an independent legislation. By the 16th century Cernobbio was very impoverished because of different wars and raids. This period also saw the beginning of the migrations of the inhabitants of the Lario.

In the 19th century, Cernobbio developed a real talent for luxury building and tourism, becoming one of the favourite resorts, famous in the world for the beautiful Villa D'Este Grand Hotel. The economy recovered and the town became a prestigious resort. A system of defensive works was built in 1916, during the First World War. Most of it stretched up on Mount Bisbino and was used again in 1940, during the Second World War. The Parish church stands in the old hamlet, while the church of the Redentore was built in the centre of the town between 1904 and 1924 and then consecrated in 1935. On the old Strada Regina, which crosses the town, there is Casa Cattaneo, one of the most famous examples of the Italian rationalistic architecture, built by architect Cesare Cattaneo in 1938- 1939.
