I recommend coming here early as I saw a huge group of adults with children as I was leaving (around 3pm). Some may feel it's rather expensive but 16 euros (umbrella and entrance) for a stunning view and relaxing late morning chill session was totally worth it!

Thank yumzzz

Writing this review from my sunbed at the lido. There's a small pool and a lake, but if the main attraction for your kids is swimming in the lake, go elsewhere. 2 days ago we got the fast ferry to lenno. Spent the afternoon at the free lido next to the boat stop. Waters there clear, we swam for free... More

Went here on our last day in Como. It's exactly what we needed after a lot of walking, hiking and sightseeing. ~12 euros per person got us a couple of lounge chairs, a sun umbrella and towels. You can swim in the lake or in the pool. Swim cap required for the pool (they sell them there), and there's a... More

It was about a 15-20 minute walk from our hotel that was located in downtown Como. Very easy, the staff all speak English and it was a very pleasant day relaxing by the lake. We arrived before noon and it was still relatively empty, the place filled in by about 2pm. We rented chairs and an umbrella (though you don't... More

If you want to bath in the lake or swimmingpool and don't mind spending a bit of money go there, there's no close alternative. Arrived there they wanted 8 euro each and for an umbrella stand 3.50. we had our own umbrella with stake, but they don't wanted to damage the grass. Believe me the grass was not that maintained...

We booked online (24 hours in advance), all very easy to rent towels €2.50 each and buy swimming caps (2 for €7) and set up camp under the umbrellas by the lake. A big area to swim in the lake, with a small pontoon and a place to jump off. Kids loved it. Amazing views. The big pool was clean... More

It’s a neo classical villa in Como. There’s a beach(from which you can swim into the lake), two private pools and a beach bar. It’s primarily a place to bask in the sun and it’s closed during the winter months. We went to visit it but it was closed (in November!) My friend in Como recommends this place to relax... More

One of the two public swimming pools and lidos in Como Centro. Great family fun for the day. They have a snack bar and two pools with lifeguards. This is where my daughter learned how to swim. Highly recommended for families in the summer when staying in Como Center in the summer months.

Thank Robin A
