From Italian Landed Gentry to George Clooney, Gianni Versace to Sir Richard Branson, Lake Como’s glistening waters and quaint villages have long been the picture perfect, patricians playground. “Lago di Como’s” sought-after status is as timeless as its elegance, with history reporting of the Romans visiting thousands of years ago. Nestled at the foothills of the Alps and fringed by a luscious verdant backdrop, Lake Como is a truly breath-taking destination.
