Lake Como ‘s territory is in the two provinces of Como and Lecco, at 40 feet above sea level. The lake is 40 miles long with a perimeter of 104 miles.
The Lario is the deepest in Europe and the narrowest of the sub-alpine lakes — just 215 feet wide from Laglio to Careno.
Due to its position at the foot of sub-Alpine mountains, the lake is sheltered from the cold northern winds in the winter months therefore the climate on the lake is a temperate one. The large mass of water causes a great deala of evaporation which stabilizes the temperature
resulting in a typical Mediterranean vegetation with many, different flowers and exotic trees in the wonderful gardens lining the lakeshore.
If you would like to visit the area, I would advise a stay of at least 3 days, but if you are also interested in going for long relaxing strolls, walking in the heart of nature enjoying fantastic views, I would recommend a longer holiday or returning another time.
It is my pleasure to help you organize visits and excursions to the different areas of the lake and to the surrounding valleys.
