Lake Como, also called Lario, is a natural pre-alpine lake of fluvioglacial origin. It has a characteristic inverted Y shape for its three branches: north Colico, south-east Lecco and south-west Como, in the region of Lombardy.
The origin of Lake Como dates back to over one million eight hundred thousand years ago, due to a glacier melt Abduano that extended up to Brianza. Even the name Lario has ancient origins, since Roman times, since there were the first settlements.
It is about 50 km from Milan and is the deepest and most luxurious lake in Italy. It is, in fact, one of the favorite tourist destinations for Italians and foreigners thanks to its environment dotted with prestigious villas and characteristic villages. In 2014, in fact, it was decreed by “The Huffington Post” the most beautiful lake in the world for its mild microclimate and the picturesque villages that overlook its waters.
