Lake Como tells its story (3 hours)



A not-to-be-missed cruise where the visitor’s imagination and emotions are stirred by the romantic beauty of Lake Como itself.

The Navigazione Lago di Como boat or a private speedboat takes you from Piazza Cavour as the guides tell us of another time and another world with stories of Julius Caesar who founded Novum Comum, of fortresses and castles, of destruction, fires and reconstructions, of pilgrims crossing the lake, of furious naval battles, powerful cardinals and crowned monarchs who built spectacular villas with large Baroque or Romantic gardens and of the great passions of the past were lived out. There were also here partisan battles, smugglers, folk festivals, politicians and celebrities who choose to live on Lake Como. Every town here has its own story to tell. No villa lacks thrilling events in its past. Villa Olmo, Villa D’Este, Villa Pizzo, Villa Versace, Villa Pliniana, Villa Balbiano, Villa del Balbianello, Villa Carlotta, Villa Melzi D’Eril and Villa Serbelloni… will all remain in your memory and in your heart.
