A historic, bustling city and the capital of the province, Como lies at the south western tip of Lake Como. As well as the legacies of a rich and varied past, there is a cosmopolitan feel and café culture here now. On your holiday in Como, as well as relaxing walks along the lake promenade and a spot of shopping, you can also split your time between visiting interesting artefacts and relaxing at a piazza café Italian style with a coffee or an ice cream.
