Groupon’s Guide to Lake Como
The third largest lake in Italy, Como blooms in the fresh breezes of the Alps, exposing flourishing wildlife in a vast and verdant scenery. With ancient lakeside villas and landscaped parks scattered around, the city bears witness to the regal past and decadent wealth of the Roman Empire.
Crystal-clear waters invite holidaymakers to set sail and go yachting or make the most of the refreshing winds from the Alps and try out a session of windsurfing or kitesurfing at one of the on-shore sporting centres. Lakeside hiking trails will lead to the Tremezzo village, where the manicured gardens of the medieval Villa Carlotta fill the air with sweet perfume. Amid rustling olive groves and exotic woods on the western edge of the lake, The Sacro Monte di Ossuccio attracts cultural sightseers with its 15 Baroque-inspired chapels leading up to the famous sanctuary. Similarly, inspiring historic sights await at the Gothic Como Cathedral, which features imposing Renaissance architecture and statues.
