Lake Como

About 45 km north of Milan and a few kilometres east of Ticino (Switzerland), Lake Como has been a place frequented by aristocrats since Roman times and is still an outstanding tourist destination today. It is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world because of its climate and its landscapes dotted with sumptuous villas and villages.

With its 170km of steep coastline, it resembles a trifid fjord carved into the foothills of the Alps, forming an inverted Y. The two southern branches each have a large city at their end, Como to the west and Lecco to the east, and all the banks are dotted with often picturesque villages.

Its main tributary is the River Adda, which flows into it from Valtellina to the north and out of it to the south at Lecco before continuing on to the Po Valley. The other 36 tributaries are short streams flowing down the slopes of the mountains surrounding the lake.

The photos on this page are extracts from the few panoramas we captured at the end of May 2022 on the eastern shore of the lake during our "Switzerland Tour outside Switzerland". The weather was unfortunately stormy and we did not linger, despite the beauty of the area.
