FROM COMO TO ISOLA COMACINA BY BOAT.

Isola Comacina_Torno_Lake ComoThe most suggestive way to reach Isola Comacina is by boat from Como. Take the boat at 10 a.m. to enjoy Lake Como from the water. During the trip, you will need to take photos to almost everything you see “I can’t close my eyes, it’s too beautiful!” said an Australian girl to us while she was taking photos. You will arrive at Isola Comacina at 11.30 a.m. Boat timetables here

ISOLA COMACINA: A PEACEFUL AND TRANQUIL SPOT TO ESCAPE FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE.

When getting off the boat, the first impression you have is to be in another world: silence, calmness, the sounds of nature. It’s perfect to spend some hours quietly and with no hurry!Isola Comacina_Lake Como

Follow the signs indicating giro dell’isola to buy your ticket for the visit. There is a map on it to guide you discovering the island, so you cannot get lost.

On the top of the island is a small church you can visit, Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista. Then you can take suggestive pictures to Lake Como’s breathtaking landscapes…even if pictures don’t bring justice to the incredible show you have in front of your eyes!
