Como's historic area is quite an easy walk with access to all areas not hard to negotiate. If depends on your state of mind and what you have available. You could spend 30 minutes and see some wonderful architecture or you could spend hours and have a nice meal, shopping and photo opportunities.

+ The lake, very nice old buildings, nice streets with shops, restaurants and everything you might search for.

- Full of tourists, specially in centro storico and it can be a little annoying after a while.

Still definitely a must.

For city lovers, a stroll through the picturesque historical city center and perhaps a spot of shopping.
Como is a wonderful city with his lake and surrounded by Alpes

This is the beautiful city of Como, in Northern Italy, exactly in Lombardia. The lake is beautiful and the downtown is magic.

I spent a quick 4 day Long weekend in lake como whilst in between meetings in Milan. It lived up to the hype: stunning in every way, and the atmosphere is divine in the summer. Great al fresco dining, beautiful walks through the cobbles streets and tempting shops. Just relax and enjoy!

A perfect apartment close to duomo and the ferries. Quiet and spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Fabriziio was very helpful and met us promptly. Highly recommended.

We meandered through downtown Como our last day in town and discovered many interesting sights. We were impressed with the Como Cathedral (Duomo), Piazza di San Fedele with it's many bars,restaurants and the Basilica di San Fedele, the walkway along the lake, and many other bars and cafes all over town.

Lake Como's city walk is peppered with grand buildings with splendid architectures and historic relevance.
Broletto, neoclassical-styled Centro Storico, Piazza Alessandro Volta, Basilica di San Fedele, Cathedral of Como with awesome sculptural reliefs, Basilica di Sant'Abbondio
are several landmarks and spots that should not be missed while exploring the streets and neighborhoods of Como.
