Lake Como (Lago di Como or locally as Lario) is a lake situated in a Lombardy – Italy.

The famous online newspaper The Huffington Post mark the  Lake Como as the most beautiful lake of the world, incredibly boosting the fame and consequently tourism in this evocative place. Lake Como has been a popular retreat for a wealthy people since Roman times, and a very popular tourist and cultural attraction. It has many villas, palaces and beautiful prestige hotels – for example: Lake Como Tourism Hotels.

Geography, lake and mountains

The mountainous pre-alpine territory between the two southern arms of the lake (between Como, Bellagio, and Lecco) all knows as the Larian Triangle (Triangolo lariano). The Grigna, Resegone (1.855 m) Legnone (2.650 m) are the main mountain ranges on the East side of the lake, the Bregagno (2.092 m) and Berlinghera are on the western side of the lake and the San Primo mountain range lies in the Triangolo Lariano, the area in between the two branches of the lake. The northern branch begins at the town of Colico, while the towns of Comoand Lecco sit at the ends of the southwestern and southeastern branches respectively. The small towns of Bellagio,Menaggio and Lierna are situated at the intersection of the three branches of the lake: a triangular boat service operates between them. The Lierna area is an historical charming site of the lake with a white beach and a famous castle.
