Tornoalago apartments (also reviewed under Como/accomodations): We stayed in their annex apartment *Blanco' which is probably less stylish but very clean and private. Extremely quiet place as almost no cars in town and only 75 meters from the lake. The hosts Rainer & Cristina are exceptionally friendly and forthcoming; they gave good guidance on hiking routes and even provided a map free of charge. Torno is idyllic and a superbe base for daytrips by boat/car to the local villas/villages, to Como town or to the surrounding hills and mountains. Breakfast at Bar Italia is recommended, and so is dinner at Belvedere: Two fine places with tons of heritage and pride. Overall a 5* experience and definitely worth a retrial or indeed several.
