Lake Como in the Italian region of Lombardy is a picture-perfect destination. There is a network of hiking trails that wind up mountains and around the lake. These different hikes all provide unique and interesting vantage points.
There are actually a number of mountains around the lake, so if you’re looking for a more strenuous climb then the Via dei Monti Lariani hiking trail is a good option. This is a long-distance route and stretches out for 125 km. If you’re looking for something shorter, consider a full day hike to Sant’Amate’s church. This hike takes you up a steep incline and gives you awesome views of the lake. The Sentee di Sort half-day hike offers more excellent views of the lake with less time hiking.
The summers are hot with day time temperatures of 25- 30°C and the winters are cold with temperatures dropping to below freezing.
Fly to Milan then drive or take the train to Como.
The warmer months of late spring, summer and early autumn are the best times to visit.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
