My husband and I stayed in Torno for several nights while visiting the Como area for a wedding. Torno is a charming town about 10 km from Como, but the best part of our stay was meeting Gabriela, the warm and generous hostess. Breakfasts (complimentary) and dinner (for which we paid extra) were oustanding, and she had two friends from town over for dinner with us so we enjoyed a lively conversation about life in Torno. Others have written about the view and room but suffice to stay it is a stunning location and a very comfortable, large room on the top floor of the building.
If you like walks, speak to Gabriela as she can recommend some lovely hikes (although be warned that they are up a mountain!). Torno is a very scenic area which fantastic views of the lake. We also took a ferry tour to Belagio which should not be missed. Overall, I much prefered Torno to the hustle and bustle of Como, but we also had a car which made it easy to move around.
I would happily stay here again, just to catch up with Gabriela! She even sent us a Christmas card last week.
