A suggestion…

For the first two days…

For the first two days of stay, your bucket list must include a tour on the lake and a visit to Como. Please go back to the itineraries we already proposed (in 1 day and in 2 days)

On your third day, we recommend a walk from the lake to the surrounding mountains. You will leave Cernobbio by boat (the pier is a few metres away from our holiday apartments), towards Como, where you can take the funicular to Brunate. You can go further to San Maurizio Lighthouse by foot or by a small shuttle bus. From there you can take a look down the first basin of the lake, as well as at Milan skyline on a clear day. Back to Brunate, you can follow the “Strada Regia”, a path (quite steep at some points) to Torno, where you can catch your boat back to Cernobbio.

or else…

If you already visited Brunate, you can reach Argegno by car (approximately half an hour from our holiday apartments), boat or bus, and get on the small cable car to Pigra, where you could just go around the village and enjoy a lunch in one of the excellent restaurants, or take one of the charming walks, starting from there.

Instead, if you prefer to stay on the lake, you can visit the other side, renown as the setting of Manzoni’s “The Betrothed”. You can take a boat from Cernobbio and head to Varenna (please find some other indications in our previous article)
