Start off your visit on the 9th (Sat): explore the different monuments and memorials at Monumental Cemetery, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Duomo di Milano, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Bagno Flamingo Beach 283. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the pleasant sights at I Navigli and then admire the masterpieces at Pinacoteca Ambrosiana.

Lake Como travel guide

Gardens · Architectural Buildings · Churches
A favorite vacation spot for more than a century, Lake Como was once an exclusive retreat for local aristocrats and wealthy people. It is not only one of Europe's most beautiful lakes, but also one of the deepest at more than 400 m (1,300 ft). Surrounded by elegant villas, the lake has become a popular holiday destination for tourists because of its range of attractions, from landscapes, wildlife, and spas, to activities like sailing, windsurfing, and kite-surfing. The area has been an inspiration for artists since Roman times. English poet Percy Bysshe Shelley wrote, "This lake exceeds anything I ever beheld in beauty…It is long and narrow and has the appearance of a mighty river winding among the mountains and the forests."
