Lake Como tour: 3 ideas not to be missed

If you have decided to visit what is one of the most beautiful lakes in Italy, know that you will have to do it calmly, taking the time to explore the most beautiful places, immerse yourself in nature and enjoy the local gastronomic tradition. In this article we decided to suggest you three Lake Como tours not to be missed to fully experience the unique atmosphere of this place.

Food Tour in the center of Como

The first Lake Como tour we want to talk about is our food tour in the center of Como.

During a walk in the city center you will have the opportunity to admire some of the most important monuments and buildings, knowing their history and curiosities, but the experience will be really unique thanks to the delicious stops we have thought for you.

You will be accompanied by a local guide who knows the most interesting secrets not only of the city, but also of its gastronomic tradition. You will enter the best restaurants in Como, the ones frequented by the locals, to taste cold cuts and local wine, polenta uncia (with cheese and butter), sciatt ( fritters with cheese) and Nuvola, the typical cake of the city.

The Food Tour of Como is the perfect opportunity to discover the historic center in an alternative and fun way!

Lake Como tour by boat

A boat tour on Lake Como is an unmissable experience.

Sailing on the waters of this lake is the best way to immerse yourself in the landscape of Lake Como: on its shores you can see luxurious villas (like George Cloney’s) and small villages that seem to have come out of a fairy tale.

Cernobbio, Bellagio and Varenna are just some of the most beautiful places to visit on Lake Como: small villages that rest on the hills and reflect on the water. Romantic places where you can walk aimlessly, enjoying every corner.

In Cernobbio there are some of the most amazing historical villas of the entire lake, Bellagio is considered the Pearl of Lake Como and Varenna its most romantic city.

Ferries depart daily from the pier of Como. Simply purchaseĀ a free circulation ticket to get on and off whenever you want and stop to explore the most beautiful towns on the shores of Lake Como.

To consult the timetable, we suggest you to visit the website of Navigazione Laghi.

Lake Como Tour by bike

The Lario is not only a perfect destination for gourmands or incurable romantics, but also for sports lovers. Among the activities to do on Lake Como, there are also many sports. Among all, we recommend the bike: cycling in the surrounding area is really an experience not to be missed.

A bike tour on Lake Como is a perfect idea to immerse yourself in the natural landscape of the area and to move from one village to another.

The itineraries are many and suitable for everyone: you can stay on the road, ride along the shores of the lake or immerse yourself in the wild nature of the mountains.

With a bike ride not too tiring you can move from village to village following the profile of the lake, otherwise you could get on a mountain bike and reach Monte Tremezzo to try one of the most spectacular and wild routes in the area.

If you love wine, you could think of a bike ride through the vineyards that also includes a stage with tasting.
