Enjoy the show - people watch in the Piazza
Photo 1 - Piazza Duomo - you will have to find a seat at an outdoor cafe here
Photo 2 - Piazza Cavour - just across from the lakeside - lots of benches - more fun than the cafe - people gather and, as usual, a favorite subject is the political landscape in Italy and passionate conversations are commonplace.
Basilica of San Fedele was built in the 12th century on the site of early Christian Church of Santa Eufemia, and has an unusual trefoil plan. The front facade was totally rebuilt together with the bell tower just a few years ago. Inside walls of the church are covered with 14th and 15th century frescoes.
Of whole Como, I was most impressed by the Piazza San Fedele, which is definetely the most pitoresque square in the town. The square is in particularly interesting because of the two late Renaissance houses, built in jutties in the 16th century.
The church of San Giacomo is the oldest church of Como,built towards the end of the 11th century and until the 16th century it was the largest church in Como. As the cathedral grew larger, the structure of San Giacomo was modified and reduced in the dimensions.
The Como's historical center is very nice to visit. There are are many old street where car can't go round. here there are many shops and pubs. But pay attention: if you are near the lake, you will pay 'tourist price'.
Well - maybe not just for kids. This train takes give you a fairytale ride to the magic Lake.
Palazzo Terragni, known also as Palazzo del fascio, was built by Giuseppe Terragni, a rationalistic architect, between 1932 and 1936.
