An enchanting town located by the shore of a gorgeous Alpine lake, perfect for sailing in summer, Como is a wonderful destination in the heart of the Italian Alps. Unspoilt by tourism, the region offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors as a family with a myriad of hiking and cycling trails, and a wide range of adventure sports for the most daring travellers. Those who prefer to experience a bit of old European flavour will not be disappointed, as Como and its surrounding region are home to some of the quaintest old towns to be found in northern Italy amongst secluded valleys and rolling jade hills. Today Como enjoys a well-deserved reputation as a crossroads between central Europe and the Mediterranean, and its proximity to Milan and the Swiss border make it an ideal destination for the whole family.
