Jessica's Travel Tips for Lake Como

What is your best overall travel tip for Lake Como?

Take it slow and eat well! We found restaurants in the alleyways and off the water a bit were much less touristy and much more delicious than those right on the water. If you want to dine on the water go to a smaller village on the lake.

In Bellagio, there are so many great restaurants to choose from, but hands-down the best one is B-Lake Bellagio! Everything from the atmosphere, to the food and wine, and to the owners care for the customer, we throughly enjoyed our experience there (twice in three days!).

Becca's Travel Tips for Lake Como

What is your best overall travel tip for Lake Como?

Our top travel trip for Lake Como is to take a private boat tour on the lake! We hopped on a gorgeous speed boat on our last day for two hours, enjoyed champagne and seeing the innumerable gorgeous villas owned by celebrities (hello George Clooney), and famous families from across the world. The weather was perfect, the lake was gorgeous, and we enjoyed spending our last day in Lake Como together on the water!

It was raining the first day we were in the area, so we hopped in the car and headed to Bergamo and Lecco to explore those cities. We had so much fun roaming around. The ferries to and from each little town in Lake Como were easy to navigate and were a great experience as well.
