Travel photo post of building structures and boats on the shores of Lake Como (Lago Di Como). As you might have guessed, Lake Como is one of our favorite places to visit. Even though the lake is well known, the area is extremely peaceful. Even in the height of the tourist season, it is very relaxing. The area is also a stone’s throw from Lake Lugano in Switzerland as well as Milan. See our latest travel photo post on Milan.
While staying in town of Como is fine, we prefer to stay in other parts. One of most upscale hotels is the Grand Hotel Tremezzo. The great service, the beautiful location with views of the lake outside the room balcony, as well as the outside pool make it well worth the cost. There are two pools in this hotel, one is indoors and the other floating on the lake. The hotel restaurant has a breathtaking panoramic view of the lake.
But the main reason we love to stay there is that Tremezzo is centrally located with easy access to the town of Bellagio and many other lakeside towns such as Lenno, where Villa del Balbianello is located, and quiet town of Varenna. It is also only a short drive from Tremezzo to Lugano.
It is a quick ferry ride to Bellagio from Tremezzo. There are many boats scheduled well into late night. We love Bellagio with its steps leading to the top and with beautiful nearby villas. But, that is the story for another post.
