Four Panoramic Walks by Lake Como

Lake Como doesn’t need any introduction. It is one of the finest lakes in Europe, the deepest one, one of the most popular among tourists and citizens alike.

Having a 3-edge star shape, or one might say a running man shape, the lake is especially beautiful when observed from the tops of surrounding mountains and ridges.

Here we will virtually hike to the best panoramic spots above the lake to see it from a new angle. There’s so much more to the Lake Como than delicious food, cozy villages, breath-taking villas with their gardens, and relaxing boat rides. Let’s take a look!

To kick off our virtual tour through the panoramic trails we will start with best view on the central part of the lake. It is a little known viewpoint near the summit of Monte Nuvolone. It might be of a modest height compared to its’ neighbors and the whole alpine region but the view of the lake is one of the finest.
