Lake Como in spring

Discovering Lake Como, among blooming wisteria, idyllic landscapes and crystal clear waters.

Spring is the best season for visiting the Province of Como and Lake Como.

Its mild weather and clear skies inspired Alessandro Manzoni in his novel The Betrothed, nature is colored with the moutnains' vibrant greens and a myriad of hues from the blooming gardens and villas that stand along the lake shores, making for a unique visit to this Region.  

With the arrival of spring, ships return to their sailing routes wihle taking visitors to lakeside boroughs, from Como to Bellagio. You can hop on board with a Day-ticket and discover the botanic gardens at the Center of the Lake.

It is a slow ride, but the view that will unravel before your eyes in priceless. You can visit the Balbianello Villa in Lenno if you wish to feel like at a film set, or Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo if you love art and flowers.

If you like walking, follow the Greenway, a gentle itinerary that connects Colonno to Cadenabbia and lets you pass along two villas through historical districts and lakeside towns. 

This path is suitable for all possible weather conditions, since Springtime is known to harbor rain once in a while.

If you are not into rain, then the city of Como and its monuments, museums, shops and cafés will be just what you need. Let's not forget about various indoor parks in which both adults and children can live unforgettable moments.
