The picturesque town of Como, Italy, sits on the shores of the gorgeous Lake Como. It's an undeniably romantic location abundant with lavish villas, charming Italian architecture, quaint cobbled streets and relaxing beaches. Visit the grandiose Como Cathedral, said to be the last Gothic cathedral built in Italy. Explore the interior with its sweeping arches, paintings and tapestries. Climb to the top of Volta Lighthouse for spectacular views over the sparkling lake and imposing Alps from a 2,000ft vantage point. The magnificent Tempio Voltiano is a neoclassical building on the waterfront which houses a museum dedicated to scientist and inventor of the electric battery, Alessandro Volta. You can easily travel to the nearby towns such as Bellagio or Verenna by ferry. Both towns have their own unique charms, evoke that same sense of romance and offer spectacular panorama of the stunning lake and lush mountainous ranges. This is a luxurious hostel destination packed with things to discover.
