Discovering Lake Como by boat is a very special experience, and one that can be shared with the many other tourists from all over the world who visit this increasingly beloved destination every year.
The most traditional way is offered by the liner service, which is also used for short hops from one shore to another. The Navigazione Laghi service offers various solutions for a boat excursion on the lake, both with and without stops.
You can therefore enjoy a direct boat transfer to admire the landscapes of the lake from the water itself for a few hours, or you may decide to move from village to village, visiting the various docking areas including Como, Cernobbio, and Bellagio.
With these charming boat trips, you can reach Cernobbio, Laglio, Lenno and Villa Balbianello (a FAI property), the Tremezzina peninsula and Villa Carlotta, where you can admire neoclassical works in an evocative setting.
Lake Como also offers routes for hikes and walks, and the option of enjoying water sports such as windsurfing, rowing, water skiing, and sailing.
Cinema lovers will remember cult scenes in famous films such as Ocean's Twelve, which were shot at Villa Erba, or Star Wars and Casino Royale, shot at Villa Balbianello, or the villa where George Clooney hosts his friends Brad and Barack.
