About

About the area

Como is a true jewel, nestled between the lake and mountains. It is no coincidence that the charm of this city has conquered the world: magnates and actors from every nation compete for residences in the surrounding area. Every corner transmits harmony, offering an immediate feeling of relaxation. The center retains its medieval layout, with a maze of paved alleys and sections of the walls marked by tall square towers: here was born the tradition of the "Comacine masters", famous specialists in stone working and the construction of large churches. The Basilica of Sant'Abbondio shows the purity of the Romanesque style, which they spread throughout Europe. Instead, the Cathedral follows the late Gothic canons, on which the eighteenth-century dome by Filippo Juvarra is grafted: to complete the square, on the side there is the Broletto building, built in the 13th century to house the Municipality. The other face of Como is shaped by the rationalist architecture of the twentieth century, among which the former Casa del Fascio, the Novocomum palace and the Sant'Elia asylum stand out, all designed by the genius of Giuseppe Terragni. Villa Olmo, with its neoclassical majesty, allows you to breathe in the beauty of the homes that the Lombard nobility created to stay on the lake: the gardens and greenhouses are colored with flowers that only grow here, thanks to an extraordinary microclimate. Finally, the Volta Temple is dedicated to the most famous citizen of Como: Alessandro Volta, whose studies and inventions are reconstructed in the rooms. Monuments aside, the city deserves to be experienced in its relaxed daily life, with the cafes under the porticoes where people meet at the tables, the streets of refined shops: everything looks towards the lake, as if it felt the call to look at itself in the mirror. The surroundings are extraordinary. You can venture into the mountains, on foot or by mountain bike, following paths that lead into the woods. Or visit the towns overlooking the Larian basin, one more famous than the other and all dotted with fairy-tale parks and villas from Cernobbio to the Comacina Island. There are also boats that allow complete tours admiring unique landscapes. Restaurants and trattorias serve dishes based on local fish - perch, whitefish and tench -, delicious risottos and traditional polenta to accompany wines from the Como area, including the increasingly popular Chardonnay. A delightful city, in every sense.
