August 5, 2017 Frederic Celentano

The Province of Como (Italian: Provincia di Como; German: Provinz Como) is a province in the north of the Lombardy region of Italy and borders the Swiss cantons of Ticino and Grigioni to the North, the Italian provinces of Sondrio and Lecco to the East, the Province of Monza and Brianza to the south and the Province of Varese to the West. The city of Como is its capital — other large towns, with more than 10,000 inhabitants, include Cantù, Erba, Mariano Comense and Olgiate Comasco.

Belvedere della Sighignola

Reviewed By Sanjaya_Wijeyekoon - London, United Kingdom

A very special place. The pictures do not really do it justice and the view of a clear day is majestic. You almost feel you are on a plane. Getting here was quite a job through a long and very tortuous road but if you love your high aerial views then this is a must. If you have transport consider also going to near the cable car station at Pigra which has a more limited but similarly spectacular view of Como. Also the platform by the Swiss Flag seems to be a favoured toilet venue for the local goats so best have a sturdy pair of shoes to really comfortably enjoy the views.

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!

Villa Fogazzaro Roi

Reviewed By Jane C

We visited the Villa Fogazzaro on the recommendation of a friend. It was not mentioned in my guide books to the Italian lakes yet this was the highlight of our trip. We had a private tour in English given by a delightful guide whose passion for the house was evident. The house is in an amazing location and is in pristine condition reflecting the unique story and interests of the previous owners. A rare gem.

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!

Went up with my elderly-ish parents on the train, rather pricey train tickets(50+ Swiss francs for round-trip adult ticket, one way 40-45 mins journey, you do get some nice view from train trip).
If you're fit enough, definitely walk it! Lovely to walk in the Mountains, very nice view on the top which makes everything worthwhile.
Bar and restaurant at the peak which offers cold beer if that motivates one. Not cheap again of course (but not disastrous) but the experience is the most important.

Our group consists of 2 young teenagers and two middle aged adults keen to try the black run of tree top aerial assault courses. We were very wisely steered towards something that suited us better and enjoyed loping from tree to tree immensely. There are several courses you can choose, from the very junior kiddie level to Tarzan go-ape level. The briefing was concise and the place we'll run. My other half and me even had a lovely ice cold beer at the end; a perfect balm for our tired muscles.

Sentiero Spirito del Bosco

Reviewed By exiledblue - Rovellasca, Italy

Beautiful area but some clearer maps are needed. We walked my my 4 year old and walked a total of about 4 hours but the journey could have been better if some clear maps were posted around.
The walk through the sculpture area was nice but without an app or physical maps its a walk into the unknown if you have kids.
