Ever wondered where Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Richard Branson are going on vacation with their families and friends? Well look no further, this lovely Italian town has been kept secret from the common traveler but is a top destination for those who seek real beauty and a great, buzzing atmosphere. Welcome to Lake Como.
Lake Como, which is in Northern Italy’s Lombardy region, is actually an upscale resort area known for its dramatic scenery, set against the foothills of the Alps. The lake is shaped like an upside-down Y, with three slender branches that meet in the resort town of Bellagio. At the bottom of the southwest branch lies the city of Como, home to Renaissance architecture and a funicular that travels up to the mountain town of Brunate. Lake Como is nice to go to because it is not as crowded, and is defintley more low key than other top celebrity hot spot vacations spots. Additionally, Lake Como is also not too pricey comparitively speaking.
Some people are really keen on the beautiful views it provides. If you are one of those, this is your place. With its jaw-dropping beauty, lovely villas and romantic towns around the lake you will find your own private heaven. Find a place to stay at Verenna, Bellagio or Menaggio which will give you impressive views, old town churches right out of the book, joyful small cafés, and restaurants, water based activities in the lake and historic stories that surround the old lake.
