Lake Como

Lake Como in the webcam is the third largest in Italy and one of the deepest lakes in Europe. The reservoir in the online camera, named after the city of the same name on the shore, is located 40 km north of Milan, at an altitude of 199 meters above sea level in the territory of the Lombardy region.

The shores of Lake Como, shown live, were “occupied” by small towns and villages: Como, Lecco, Cernobbio, Laglio, Colico, Bellagio, Menaggio, Varenna.

The Alpine mountains protect Como in the live camera from cold northern winds, and even in the winter season, the air temperature in the vicinity of the reservoir always exceeds zero.

Como in the online camera is considered a fairly prestigious resort. A significant part of the luxury hotels near the lake are former old residences.

The hills surrounding Lake Como online abound with flowers and trees of the Mediterranean and tropical type: palms, cypresses, fragrant magnolias, camellias and even cacti. The incredibly picturesque landscapes of Como served as a film set for such famous films as “Casino Royale”, “Star Wars” and “Ocean’s Twelve“.

In the summer, on Lake Como, which you see in the web cam, colorful folklore holidays and music festivals are held, among them the following stand out: the jazz festival “Lario Jazz R’n’B”, the festival “Larian lights” in memory of the battle of 1169 and festival of symphonic music “Sinfo Lario”.

For tourists relaxing by Lake Como in live cam, there is a wide range of sports activities, including rock climbing, horseback riding, golf, tennis, cycling. There are also water sports: windsurfing, diving, sailing and kayaking.

As a pleasant addition to a holiday on Lake Como, we recommend shopping in Milan, as well as wine tours in the province of Lombardy (sparkling and white wines).
