The lake and its beauties
Lake Como or Lario is particularly appreciated for its natural beauty. It is a basin of glacial origin, progressively formed by the movement of a glacier set between the beautiful Lario mountains. This gives it a unique appearance, with the lofty peaks of the Lombardy Alps reflected in the waters of the lake.
Always a favourite tourist destination, it reached the peak of its fame in the past decade when it was chosen as a holiday spot by numerous celebrities, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Julia Roberts. It has also been the setting for a number of films, such as Star Wars Casino Royale, A Month on the Lake and Un Ciclone in Famiglia, as well as for many advertisements and photo shoots.
