Geography and Climate
Lake Como is located in the Lombardy region at 40 km from Milan. The lake is surrounded by the largest mountains chain Alps and is situated at an altitude of 200 m above the sea level. Its shape is similar to the Latin letter “Y”. Each division of the lake has its own name - Colico, Lecco and Como, located in the southwestern part of the peninsula. The second name of Lake Como is Lario that literally speaks of his considerable depth, and it is considered the deepest lake in Europe.
Despite the fact that the weather on the lake is warm any time of the year, although the most popular time to travel to Como is from April to September. During this period the weather is hot, and the temperature reaches 30 degrees, and water 25 degrees. Not the same we can say about the autumn months.
