Holidays on Como lake

Deciding what to see on Lake Como can be difficult because time does not always allow you to visit the many little town that overlook it.
A good idea is therefore to take the boat of the Navigazione Lago di Como, to make a complete tour of the entire lake.
Along the way you can admire enchanting villas, difficult to observe from the coast, or choose to stop by going down to the villages you meet.
