Overview
If Lake Como is one of the jewels of northern Italy, Como is its chief town. The elegant and relaxing atmosphere of this city will be the surrounding of an exclusive private tour which will lead you to discover its most outstanding monuments, such as the impressive cathedral, and its gastronomic specialties. The "Pazientina", an almond and vanilla cream cake, will be the perfect match for a good espresso coffee, to warm up your mind and body; afterwards, a tasting of truffle-based creams and dressings will amuse your smell. Finally, a couple of glasses of good wine will go together with a selection of local cold cuts and cheese, for an unforgettable aperitif on the lakeside.

    Cathedral of Como (Duomo)
    Stop: 30 minutes - Admission included
    The most important religious building of Como is also the third in Lombardia district for dimension, after the Duomo in Milan and the Charteuse in Pavia. The start of the construction is more or less the same for the three building, i.e. the end of 14th century. The cathedral took the place of the pristine church of Santa Maria Maggiore, which had become too small for the community needs. The construction lasted more than 300 years, thus the visible styles are Gothic (facade), Renaissance (sides and apses), Baroque (dome).
