Things To Do

Your average guidebook to the Italian Lakes usually focuses on everything there is to see on Lake Como – the ‘must see’ villas and gardens. You might get the impression that sightseeing is the what it’s all about, and that would be a pity, because it’s worth remembering that Lake Como is both home for many and a weekend playground for Milan.  So there is no shortage of things to do, from golf to watersports, from hiking to hang-gliding.  If you are in a family group, you can find something to suit everybody.   It’s just a question of finding out what and where.  This section is dedicated to helping you to find the right balance between looking and doing while you are on the Lake.
