Italy's Lake Como

About Lake Como, Italy

Insider's guide to Lake Como

Lake Como is so beautiful, so peaceful, so crammed full of great restaurants and swanky hotels, you could be fooled into thinking it's the exclusive preserve of holidaying oligarchs and film stars (George Clooney owns a place there). But as those who have been there know, it can be an affordable and fun place to take the family. Travel Our Way Inc will easily arrange your flights to Milan and from there the lake is just a 90-minutes away. Plus, as long as you know the right places to go (and the right ones to avoid) you don't need a Clooney-sized budget to enjoy a week of amazing scenery, perfect food and all-round lakeside frolicking.
