Lake Como, Italy
Spectacularly set in the foothills of the Northern Italian Alps is a beautiful blue lake surrounded by palatial villas, blooming bougainvillea & colorful cobblestone towns. A place where the rich & famous go to escape the hustle & bustle of the everyday; trading in the real world for the calming still of the lake and the big city for the elegant, sleepy charm of Italian villages.

The Best time of Year to Visit Lake Como
The best time to visit Lake Como is the summertime. Because of its location near the Alps, the lake is largely deserted outside of late April-early October. I visited in August and it was just perfect. Not too crowded, warm, with light summer showers every so often (very common on Lake Como).
