Como Photo Gallery

Ideas and ideas for your holiday on the lake.

This Como Photo Gallery depicts the city, its surrounding territories, valleys and the internationally acclaimed Lake Como.

It is an art city full of charming boroughs like, Menaggio, Cernobbio and Bellagio. A succession of villas and gardens scattered along the lake front, with sailing solutions that will allow you to fully appreciate its beauty.

The valleys' natural landscape and the sight of the Alps serve as a "terrace" for Brunate, with its aristocratic architecture and culinary specialties like freshwater fish. Como will also astonish you with its delicacies. 

This Como Photo Gallery makes part of a larger project that provides a comprehensive look of Lombardy's provinces through images taken by members of local communities, since they are the most suited to tell their everyday history and wonders.

This page dedicated to Como has been made with the collaboration of  LakeComo and Le vie del viandante, who provided every photo and information on the numerous things to see and do here.

Como and its lake offer the possibility of engaging in various activities and experiences. Relaxing, cultural and sportive initiatives await more adventurous types. Browse the gallery to get ideas for an unforgettable lake vacation!
