Como

Como, on the tip of the western shore of the lake, is a city with 80.000 inhabitants, holding an interest in its history, culture, its textile industry but, mainly, its amazing position.

Como was born from prehistoric settlements and then moved by Giulio Cesare right on the passageway to the northern slope of the Alps, the city has always played a key role for the region, so much that it competed with Milan for centuries.
Since the early Middle Ages, some small towns arose next to the city that was protected by walls (commissioned by Barbarossa and partially kept till nowadays); each of these villages has its own identity and characteristics. Today, they are part of the city and their memory is still alive in the many ancient monuments that you can admire all around Como.
