Fun facts about the trip: along the journey from Como to Varenna, you can see monuments, villas and breathtaking views…
COMO’S MONUMENTS:

  • “The Life Electric” sculpture created by the architect Daniel Libeskind; dedicated to Alessandro Volta, it is situated on the end of the Diga Foranea pier – it resembles two opposing sinusoidal projections, weighs 29 tons and is about 14 m tall.
  • The Volta Temple erected in the memory of Alessandro Volta – the famous scientist whose studies led him to the creation of the electric battery in 1799, the ancestor of today’s battery. This invention was so important that the unit of electrical potential, the volt was named after Volta;
  • The monument to the fallen of the First World War, was built in 1933 based on the original drawings of the futurist Architect Sant’ Elia.

Travelling in the direction of Cernobbio, we come across numerous prestigious Villas which include Villa Olmo and Villa Erba, architectural gem built at the end of the nineteenth century and the filming location of numerous films (Ocean’s Twelve is one of the most famous).
Continuing the journey north towards Bellagio, you can admire the most remarkable locations where many famous people have bought homes, such as Villa Fontanelle in Laglio, formerly owned by Gianni Versace, and George Clooney’s Villa Oleandra.
On the opposite bank, in the town of Torno, stands the majestic Villa Pliniana built in 1573. Crossing the lake once again, heading north, you will come across the famous Comacina Island, the only island on Lario that had a key role in the history of Como in Roman times and in the early Middle Ages.

Continuing the journey to the far end of the Lavedo peninsula, stands one of the most beautiful and romantic mansions of Lake Como, Villa del Balbianello, which thanks to its charm, has been used as the setting for several films such as Casino Royale and Star Wars. Today, it is the venue for many luxury weddings.

Heading north you come across many famous towns such as Tremezzo with its prestigious Villa Carlotta and Menaggio. Having crossed the bank where the branches of Lake Como divide, La Perla del Lario appears as magic: “Bellagio” with its beautiful residences and its majestic Villa Melzi. Crossing the bank again, we arrive at the characteristic Varenna, known as the Portofino of Lake Como ……
