Lake Como & Its Surroundings
Franz Liszt lived on Lake Como. Pliny and Virgil lived here as well in Roman times and they called it the most beautiful place in the world. It hasn't changed. From the hills above the lake, you can see the Matterhorn in the distance. This is based on our larger book, Milan & the Italian Lakes. Here we zero in on the most popular of the lakes, with abundant extra illustrations showing all the sights, hotels and attractions. We travel to grow - our Adventure Guides show you how. Experience the places you visit more directly, freshly, intensely than you would otherwise - sometimes best done on foot, in a canoe, or through cultural adventures like art courses, cooking classes, learning the language, meeting the people, joining in the festivals and celebrations. This can make your trip life-changing, unforgettable. All of the detailed information you need is here about the hotels, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. But we also lead you to new discoveries, turning corners you haven't turned before, helping you to interact with the world in new ways. That's what makes our Adventure Guides unique. The guide provides everything you'll ever need to know for planning a trip to this stunning holiday destination, from places to stay and eat, and practical travel advice, to what to pack and when to go. It also features up-to-date information on all the exciting activities and adventures just waiting to be enjoyed - from visiting the stunning lake with its fabulous Roman villas and beautiful vistas, to discovering the hidden treasures of the region's unforgettable palaces, churches and museums. "I bought this after reading the author's piece on Lake Como on the GoNomad site. I wasn't disappointed - there's masses of extra information here that many other guidebooks just don't have, and all of the lakes are covered, plus day trips to nearby towns, etc. Good variety of hotel and restaurants - not just for those with big budgets. I particularly like the listing and addresses for the ''adventures'' - which include anything from diving schools, bike and boat hire to art courses. The book doesn't seem quite as glossy as some other titles but the content is great - and clearly written by somebody who knows the region well. Maps are good too" -- Amazon reviewer
