European City of Silk

Lake Como's glistening waters are straight out of a movie and this region in Lombardy has been the backdrop for dozens of Hollywood filmmakers for decades. Though the lake's origin is glacial, you'll enjoy a Mediterranean climate and mild weather. Artists have flocked here for hundreds of years to muster up inspiration for their work. Writer Percy Blythe Shelley described it as, "exceeding anything I have ever beheld in beauty." Its cultural offerings are abundant. As a destination, visitors are drawn to the mountainous landscape, wildlife, kayaking and spas. Dine in the epicenter within Bellagio or peruse museums and gardens on the outskirts.

Destination Highlights


  • Forecasting Your Lake Como Vacation

    In addition to being the anchor of the region's activities, culture and iconic scenery, the lake is one of the biggest influencing factors in its climate, as well. It generates cooling breezes in the warm summertime and absorbs sunlight in the winter, helping to provide some warmth when things cool down. These lake effects help foster pleasant Mediterranean weather year-round. Be sure to keep an umbrella handy during the rainier spring and summer months.
