    Located in the Como Province of Lombardy in northern Italy is Lake Como, one of the most popular destinations in the country for locals and tourists alike. Its popularity is based on a combination of the fresh air and water, the good climate, the surrounding mountains, and the water. The numerous towns surrounding the lake are also a major part of the appeal.

    1

    Bellagio

    Situated at the junction of the lake’s two legs, this is an extremely attractive town yet less crowded and quieter than the others in the vicinity.

    Menaggio

    Located on the western shoreline, this attractive tourist destination is not as busy as Bellagio and Varenna. There is a youth hostel located here but it is usually filled on weekends so keep that in mind. Additionally, the pedestrian-only area in the heart of town is populated with coffee shops, gelaterias, a lakefront mini-golf course and snack bar, and several restaurants.
