Lake Como is nearly everyone’s favorite summer spot in northern Italy. As the days grow longer and hotter, the crowds grow larger. If you’re looking for a good place to swim, aside from the lake of course, check out these spots for some luxurious fun in the sun. Don’t forget sunscreen!

Lido Cernobbio

One of the most scenic locations in Lake Como, Lido Cernobbio hails from Cernobbio square, a well-known resort. Completely renewed, the pool is the perfect unique way to spend a sunny day on Lake Como - by the water and with food and drink on hand. Treat yourself to a yoga or swim class, and stay for dinner to make the most of your time here.

Lido di Lenno

Though it’s technically on a publicly-accessed beach, Lido di Lenno is an ideal place to relax if you’re looking for a luxurious atmosphere with a coastal menu. Well-equipped beach service meets your every need as you enjoy a serene environment of music, food, wine - yes, wine - and cosy daybeds if you choose to reserve one.
