SEE THE LAKE FROM THE LAKE
For an overview, forgetting the traffic, the queues, the difficulty of finding parking, the best choice is the navigation on board the frequent boats of Navigazione Laghi: cover the entire lake from Como and from Lecco to Colico, passing to Bellagio and the central-lake locations that are connected both by a frequent ferry service with the possibility of embarking cars or a circular shuttle. The possibilities are many, with the ticket for free movement you can in fact make more stops and get back on board in total freedom and, in case of haste, there is a quick service that reduces travel time.
