Lago di Como | Lago di Lecco | Lakes of Italy
Something like a southern mountain lake
Lakes of Italy: Lago di Como and Lago di Lecco.
Native people call it Lario. It is, just like Lago di Lugano and Lago Maggiore, a mountain lake on the southern foothills of the Alps. If one considers its surface area (146 km2), it's the second in size of the Italian lakes, according to the length of its banks, definitely the biggest. Its deepness goes to a maximum of 410 m, which is below Sea level! It is fed by the rivers Mera and Adda and dewatered by Adda only.
As far as tourism is concerned it is quieter here then at Lago Maggiore and Lago di Garda. Some of us may well enjoy this. It is a corner for individual tourism. In the small village of Bellagio one of the most famous hotels of Italy can be found, Grand Hotel Villa Serbellone.
