Holidays in Italy: Explore the historic city of Como

Jostling with neoclassical villas, Romanesque churches, art galleries and museums, hotels in and around Como city, located on the southern banks of stunning Lake Como, are the perfect destination for a historic break in breathtaking natural surrounds. Birthplace of an impressive roster of historic figures, it isn't hard to imagine why this city has produced some of Europe's great thinkers. Flanked by lush green mountains, the pristine waters of Italian Switzerland's Lake Como are enviably located within driving distance of Italy's Alpine region and the breathtaking Lake Lugano. Less than an hour's drive away from Como, jetset hideaway Lugano serves as an excellent base for historic city breaks, and boasts several luxury hotels away from the hubbub of Como city.
