An Italian city; voluptuous and romantic
Review of Como (Italy) by Praski

Advantages: Super architecture, a real buzz when walking in the old quarter,
Disadvantages: Too glitzy for some and very, very busy

The city of Como has two distinct faces: one historic, facing the lake, and one industrial, which extends into the Brianza. Como is best approached from the north, either across the lake or along one of the lakeside roads, when the town is at its most mag ... Read review

A Lake of Shining Waters Surrounded by Mountains & George Clooney
Review of Como (Italy) by i_heart_elo

Advantages: The Cities of Como and Bellagio around the Lake, close to Switzerland/Milan, Can tour Lake by Boat
Disadvantages: You won't be able to stay forever (unless your Rich and George Clooney).

Lakes surrounded me as a child. Every summer, my family and I would go to a Lake somewhere nearby and rent a houseboat for a week. These bodies of water aren't often crystal clear. I've been to some that are. Some that when you are in the middle of the la ... Read review

Review of Como (Italy) by rihallix

Advantages: Spectacular scenery, Italian food, great ferries, not overrun by tourists
Disadvantages: Attractions close smack in the middle of the day, credit cards rarely accepted
