Lake Como is the perfect resort town. Its quaint, beautiful, and luxurious.

Lake Como is to Milan what the Hamptons are to New York, paradise island. It’s only a quick 30-45 minute high-speed train ride away from Milano Centrale and drops you off right in the heart of Lake Como. It’s the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Milan for a weekend of relaxation.

There are several incredible resorts located directly on the lake. Though we did not go at the right time of year, as it was 40 degrees and raining, the charm and beauty of Lake Como are undeniable. They have several bakeries and pastry shops for you to enjoy a nice piece of cake or a cornetto and a cappuccino, or there are fantastic restaurants surrounding the lake with beautiful views. Its location lends a great spot for if you are craving some good seafood. Buon Appetito!

Because the weather was so cold and it was the tourist off season we just strolled around the lake and the rest of the city for a couple of hours. Unfortunately we didn’t see George Clooney, but we definitely made a rallying effort. No worries, we will see him next time!
