Lake Como is not the seaside but it truly offers a wonderful range of opportunities to enjoy the beautiful lake water. Around Lake Como there are many beautiful beaches, partly small and hidden, partly spacious and suitable for the whole family. Most beaches are shingle beaches, however there are also a few sand beaches alongside a great selection of natural and widespread beaches of grass lawns.
The towns, villages and landscapes of the lake are full of medieval churches, basilicas and abbeys. All the way from Como up to the north part of the lake, from Sant’Abbondio to Santa Maria del Tiglio, from Bellagio to Piona is are many testimonies of Romanesque art in Lombardy.
