This was a great place to hold our conference. The rooms were open and full of light as windows cover most of the building. Wifi was okay and even the staff were ok.

Basilica di Sant'Abbondio

Reviewed By Trolleyman81 - Glasgow, United Kingdom

The Basilica di Sant'Abbonlio is situated away from the other tourist attractions but is well taking the time and making an effort to visit. Indeed , we were the only visitors at the time, unlike Como Duome where there were many tour groups..
The 14th century frescoes are well worth seeing.
Make that extra effort to visit!

Parco delle Gole della Breggia

Reviewed By theswissbrit - Lugano, Switzerland

Take a couple of hours or more to walk the valley up the river. Crystal clear water to swim in although it's freezing cold. Avoid going after rain as the water is not so nice. Picnic at the several designated spots along the way or just on a rock. Impressive rock formations. Very much recommended.

Faro voltiano

Reviewed By Guy L

You may think that after having walked 30-odd minutes from the funicular to the lighthouse that those final few steps up the lighthouse is asking just too much of your physical stamina. There are about 145 steps for those who like facts and figures and the entrance fee is €2 each for adults. Please do not be put off by these latter details. The reward at the top is well worth it. The view is a million times better than from the base of the lighthouse. No trees to hide the view, no rooftops. Just you and Lake Como. Come on, hand in pocket... €2 please!

Biggest church in town. Like many other churches in Italy, old, elaborate, and impressive. One of the entrance doors is called the Door of the Frog because of a small frog eating a butterfly that was carved into the entrance. See if you can find it!

Il Pasticiccino di Cazzaniga Chiara

Reviewed By donnola77 - Milan, Italy

Sono stata di recente con un'amica a fare colazione in questa pasticceria. Lei c'era stata il giorno prima per acquistare dei pasticcini e del gelato, e voleva tornare per fare colazione.. che dire.. Le paste sono deliziose, buone le brioches, il caffé. Non ho assaggiato il gelato ma la mia amica e i suoi ospiti hanno apprezzato molto. Prezzi nella norma come in ogni altro posto della zona,. Servizio cortese fatto da due signore gentili. Locale pulitissimo e ci sono anche i tavolini all'aperto.
Ci siamo trovate molto bene. Se dovessimo ricapitare in zona Cavallasca torneremo sicuramente.
