Favorite thing: Cernobbio extends also on the hills above the lake, and I find it extremely beautiful, especially since it is on the sunny side, always bathing in sun rays, and houses arrayed one after the other in cascades, all of different colours! It looks very cheerful and pretty!
Favorite thing: This is a typical boat of the Como lake, a bit modernized version. This one is even named Cernobbio! You won't see them around the lake so often anymore, but sometimes they will surprise you! I like this strange boats very much! Especially when theyhave a "tent" open on the wires that you see as contour.
Favorite thing: Behind the restaurant I was talking about so much there are swimming pools, and in winter they can freeze and serve as a skate rink, however I haven't seen anyone doing that at the time we were there, the entire square was empty and we were the only guests of the restaurant together with an elderly couple... The kids here would have exploited the pools right away over here. Or maybe it's just the famous Italian lunch hour? ;)
Favorite thing: Isn't it incredible that in such an industrial area as Lombardia, and only 50km from Milano there is such a clear water?! Everywhere around Como lake the water is so clear! Transparent, clean, wonderful colours... Hard to believe! Even in the bigger towns, like Como, it is equally clear!!!
Favorite thing: At the big lake square, behind the monument occupying it in the center, there is this children "circus" with the rides for the youngest. Nothing pompous, but entertaining enough for children, and it also looks nice on the square I think. So, while you admire the lake or even take something in the bar, you can leave kids to pley over there. :-)
Favorite thing: Since Cernobbio is on the lakeside, there is a small port filled with usually small boats of the locals, here you won't find huge yachts and sailboats like in Como for instance. However, it might be different in front of Villa d'Este :-)
In the background of this picture(the red and the white buildings), there's one of the Cernobbio's pride the 5 stars hotel Villa D'Este.
This is, for sure, one of the best world hotels (evry year is the first, the second or at least th third hotel in world chart).
In Villa d'este there's also a wonderful floating swimmingpoll, but it's not pubblic.
Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and many other popular stars sllep here, when they are in Italy.
On 4th July, there's the American party with a really wonderful pyrotechnic show. You can admire it from the mountains around Cernobbio.
