Today, a number of celebrities have houses in the area – allowing them to make the most of this breath-taking region. Whilst you may not be able to afford to permanently reside here, a trip to Lake Como is a great option if you’re looking to relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings.
Located in the foothills of the Alps, the Lake Como area is only a short drive from Milan, however it couldn’t be more different. In a striking contrast to Milan’s hustle and bustle, Lake Como is the epitome of serenity and tranquillity.
Several cities make up the Lake Como area, with Como being perhaps the most popular. Tremezzo is a tiny town with a spectacular botanical garden, which is especially beautiful in the warmer months. Bellagio is perhaps the most popular town, with price tags to match, however it is well worth a visit, even if you stay in another area.
