This Summer we travelled to Lake Como, in Italy. Lake Como is said to be the
most beautiful lake in the world, and I must say I agree.
As we were on a 9 day roadtrip through 4 countries, we only had two nights to
spend at the lake. To get the most out of those two nights, we decided to spend the
first night up at a small family hotel in the mountains surrounding Lake Como, and the
second (also at a small family hotel) down by the lake.
The views from the hotel were amazing. And it was so
peaceful and calm, I could’ve stayed there forever…
The second night, at the hotel down by the lake, we also had an amazing view!
There was asmall beach nearby (like TINY, it was really packed with people, even
dogs…) where we spent a couple of hours in the afternoon. It was OK, but I wouldn’t
recommend coming to Lake Como fora beach holiday. The beaches there are just a few,
and they’re really uncomfortable with basically just rocks and no sand. Plus, as I said,
TINY and packed with both people and dogs.
Conclusion: visiting Lake Como for two days was really great, but I would definitely
stay longer the next time… There’s so much to explore! Cozy little towns and villages all
around the lake, amazing restaurants, hikes to take in the mountains, boat-rides, ah…
And hey, fun fact, did you know that George Clooney has a villa at Lake Como? So
bummed that I didn’t see him… Oh well, next time!
