Stars of Lake Como

 

What links films such as "What a beautiful day", "The shadow of suspicion", "Star Wars", "Ocean's Twelve" and Lake Como? Maybe not everyone knows it but they were also filmed in Como.

Promoted by the Chamber of Commerce of Como in collaboration with the Province of Como, the guide "The stars of Lake Como" aims to be an orientation compass to be able to easily find and visit the villas, parks and panoramas immortalized by the camera and deepen the link between cinema, its protagonists and Lake Como.

The guide offers a selection of Italian and foreign films, presenting with practical and intuitive cards, the itineraries of the places where the sets were set up, without missing anecdotes and curiosities.

Sport and leisure in Como

 

The area offers many water sports activities, such as sailing, water skiing and classic rowing in the area.

For those who love the sun, the beach and swimming, we recommend the two Lidos of Como located inside two magnificent villas: the Lido of Villa Olmo and the Lido of Villa Geno. Lake Como is located in an exceptional geographical position nestled between green valleys and mountains over two thousand meters high. The best way to discover and enjoy this landscape and natural heritage is to leave the car behind and walk or cycle  along the paths that run along the lake.

Located just 15 minutes from the Hotel Como, guests can enjoy a kart race with friends on the Kart&Go track.

For adults and children we recommend Swissminiatur, it is an open-air miniature park on the shores of Lake Lugano. There are around 130 scale models of Switzerland's most famous buildings, monuments and means of transport.
