Isola Comacina, an amazing island, is the ideal destination for you! No worries, unlike Peter’s Neverland, it does exist! Are you ready to discover it?

Of course, as I said several times, it depends on the type of vacation you are looking for… But trust me, it’s worth it!

First, a brief allusion to its history. I don’t want to bore you, so I only say that the island is very ancient: for example, the church of Saint Eufemia was built in the XI century. Today there are only archeological evidences, but I deeply believe it’s exciting to admire such precious ruins!

If possible, visit the island on a sunny day to fully enjoy the panorama. From there, you can admire some of the most beautiful towns of the lake! If you aren’t lucky with the weather, don’t be afraid, the restaurant or the bar with breathtaking views will assure you an unmatched experience… Yes, even if the sky isn’t totally clear!

Don’t forget that the island is the location for the most famous event on Lake Como: the fireworks display. It’s not the only show during the summer, but it’s the most important one.
