Lake Como, Italy


In Lombardy, Italy, a freshwater lake originated from glaciers. To the north of the lake is the Alps. Its area is 146 square kilometers, the average depth is 154 meters, the deepest point is 425 meters, and the circumference of the lake is 160 kilometers. It is the third largest lake in Italy after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore.

  Since Roman times, Lake Como has been a holiday destination for nobles and wealthy people, and a very popular tourist destination with many artistic and cultural treasures. It has many villas and palaces, such as the Villa Olmo commissioned by the Marquis of Innocenzo Odescacci in 1797, the Villa Serberoni sponsored by Cardinal Durini at the end of the 18th century and 1690 Villa Carlotta built by George Cleric, Marquis of Milan. Many famous people own or have owned houses on the shores of Lake Como, such as: Matthew Bellamy, John Kerry, Madonna, George Clooney, Richard Branson, Stallone, Ronaldini Austrian etc.

  One of its characteristics is its characteristic "Y" shape, forming the "Lariano Triangle" with the small town of Canzo as its capital. There are many small towns around the lake. The most well-known one is Lake Como with the same name, and the one on the right side of the "Y" shape is Como, but the most famous does not mean the most beautiful scenery.

    Lake, a town on the left side of the "Y", is at least prettier than Como in my mind.

  However, in the eyes of Chinese people, Bellagio's popularity is second only to Como, or this popularity is still higher than that of Como, and Como is only dipped in the light of the same name as the lake.

  There are also small towns such as Dongo, Menaggio, Varenna, San Siro, Gravedona, Bellano, Santa Maria, etc., which are all worth taking time to watch and experience
