Destination inspiration: Lake Como, Italy
We recently had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful Lake Como in Italy. We’ve fallen in love with this incredible location and wanted to share with you everything it has to offer for events and incentives.
With its wonderful landscapes, charming villages, fascinating villas and breathtaking views, there is hardly a place in Europe that evokes images of beauty, glamour and tranquility more than Lake Como.
Situated in the north of Italy, at the foothills of the Alps and just a short drive from Milan, Lake Como is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. The area’s beauty has earned its reputation among the stars, with Como being used as a location for the famous James Bond film, Casino Royale, and with a number of celebrities choosing to make Como their second home; George Clooney, Madonna and Richard Branson to name a few.
The city has 3 airports but the closest and most convenient for Lake Como is Milan Malpensa, with a flight time of just 2 hours from London. When you arrive in Italy, the transfer time to Como is around an hour, but you may want to build some time in Milan into your itinerary.
Como has become a very exclusive destination with many villas converted into luxury hotels dripping with character, with elegant spas, panoramic restaurants and terrific golf courses. The city offers a wide range of 3, 4 and 5 star hotel accommodation. There is also a great choice in event facilities from modern conference centres to breathtaking venues, full of style and tradition. Many of the venues overlook the banks of the lake and offer beautiful outdoor gardens and parks, perfect for unforgettable outdoor events and incentive activities.
In addition to an excellent selection of events and accommodation facilities, Lake Como offers a wide variety of incredible activities and attractions, and of course delicious food!
