Most are familiar with the imposing Milan Cathedral, but few have discovered the Cathedral of Como. This Gothic-Romanesque cathedral in the heart of the city impresses with its simple elegance and architectural details. The facade is adorned with intricate sculptures and artistic reliefs, while the interior features lofty vaults and colorful stained glass windows, creating a serene and reverent atmosphere.

After visiting the cathedral, you can enjoy the Cathedral Square at one of the cafes with an Aperol Spritz and delicious snacks, fully appreciating the cathedral or observing the bustling activities of passersby.


Lunchtime calls for authentic Italian cuisine at a local osteria.

On the right side of the lake, you’ll find one osteria after another, where you can enjoy the tempting aromas of freshly prepared pasta and locally sourced ingredients while overlooking the shimmering lake. Perhaps you’ll be tempted by a hearty risotto or a simple yet divine Margherita pizza – each bite is a celebration of Italian culinary artistry.
