The lake of Como is situated in the north of Milan. The city of Como is really beautiful and the Duomo is one of the most interesting places as well as the Tempio Voltiano where is it showed the first battery, invented by Volta. There's a cable-railway going up from Como to Brunate. There's a belvedere where you'll see a nice view of the lake and the city.
I love walking...along the way I see something that catches my eye and it's always nice to take a pic.
We parked the car and walked going towards the lake passing a flea market, some nice shops selling the usual italian leather goods and clothes, and their little piazza with the beautiful church.
