Lake Como – Lago di Como – is located in Northern Italy in the Lombardy region. With its proximity to the Alps, the lake is embedded in a beautiful landscape. The third largest lake in Italy and one of the deepest in Europe, Lago di Como has an inverted "y" shape. Each of its three banks has different features. The west bank of Lake Como is fairly densely populated with several small villages like Brienno and Lario. Close to Lenno, you can find the sole island of Lake Como: the Isola Comacina. The south bank comprises Bellagio and Lecco as well as the City of Como which is the capital of the province of Como. The east bank is sparsely populated, making it perfect for trips through the nature all around the lake. Several long trails are ideal for hiking or bike trips. Lake Como also offers different water sports such as windsurfing, sailing or kiting.
