From 24th November to 6th January, the 25th edition of the well-known Christmas festival, a landmark event for Como.
What best occasion to discover this beautiful city?
Como is located in the extreme South of the western branch of the namesake lake.
Here, history, art, nature and science are harmoniously tied together and make Como a unique city.
An 3km itinerary on the lake shore takes us from Villa Geno, on the eastern side of the bay, to Villa Olmo, on the Western side. Along this path, we find several highlights of the city of Como: Piazza Cavour facing the lake and just behind it the splendid Duomo; “Life Electric” on the Diga Foranea pier, a sculpture which the American architect Daniel Libeskind donated to Como; the Tempio Voltiano, a museum dedicated to a renowned Como citizen, Alessandro Volta, the inventor of the electric battery; the War Memorial, designed by rationalist architect Antonio Sant’Elia; eventually, Como Aereo Club, the most ancient organization and school of seaplanes in the world.
