This was a great place to hold our conference. The rooms were open and full of light as windows cover most of the building. Wifi was okay and even the staff were ok.

Faro voltiano

Reviewed By Guy L

You may think that after having walked 30-odd minutes from the funicular to the lighthouse that those final few steps up the lighthouse is asking just too much of your physical stamina. There are about 145 steps for those who like facts and figures and the entrance fee is €2 each for adults. Please do not be put off by these latter details. The reward at the top is well worth it. The view is a million times better than from the base of the lighthouse. No trees to hide the view, no rooftops. Just you and Lake Como. Come on, hand in pocket... €2 please!

Basilica di Sant'Abbondio

Reviewed By Trolleyman81 - Glasgow, United Kingdom

The Basilica di Sant'Abbonlio is situated away from the other tourist attractions but is well taking the time and making an effort to visit. Indeed , we were the only visitors at the time, unlike Como Duome where there were many tour groups..
The 14th century frescoes are well worth seeing.
Make that extra effort to visit!

Take a couple of hours or more to walk the valley up the river. Crystal clear water to swim in although it's freezing cold. Avoid going after rain as the water is not so nice. Picnic at the several designated spots along the way or just on a rock. Impressive rock formations. Very much recommended.

Biggest church in town. Like many other churches in Italy, old, elaborate, and impressive. One of the entrance doors is called the Door of the Frog because of a small frog eating a butterfly that was carved into the entrance. See if you can find it!

Villa Bernasconi

The villa is a beautiful example of Art Nouveau Architecture. Designed by architect Alfredo Campanini, it was built at the beginning of the XXth century for Davide Bernasconi, owner of the silk factory with the same name. The exterior facades are enriched with decoration like silkwarms, butterflies and mulberry leaves related to silk production.

Reviewed By Michaela - El Dorado Hills, CA

We toured this villa with a licensed guide. I wasn't expecting that much, but it was one of my favorite stops on this trip! Bernasconi lead an amazing life of exploration. He participated in 21 expectations and was an avid collector with an extremely sharp eye. His collections are varied and amazing, and presented (displayed) brilliantly. Not stuffy or boring, just fascinating!
Every window in this home has a beautiful view of the lake except for one window in the map room. An amazing piece of architecture and real estate ...that was home to an incredible man of beautiful taste.
