Lake Como Map Showing Top Places to Visit

James Martin, Europe Travel
Our Lake Como map shows many of the more interesting cities around the inverted "Y" that is Lago di Como.

A half hour north of Milan, Lake Como can get packed with visiting Milanese on weekends. Known for its lavish villas, a drive around the lake is mandatory if you have a car.

Bellaggio is known as la perla del lago (the pearl of the lake), and is considered by many to be the most beautiful and romantic town on Lake Como, if not in Italy.

You can take the funivia up to Brunate for a spectacular view of Lake Como and surrounding hills, and cool off in the summer in the higher altitude as well. Hikers can take the footpath up to Monte Boletto for the same effect.
