Lake Como was so crowded when I was there last August (especially Bellagio) I did not like it at all, I prefer Lake Garda as it is much less crowded.Posted: April 30, 2023
I don’t like Lake Como. It was very crowded and the ferries weren't great. I did 4 days on Como, it was enough. If I was to go back I’d take the train to Varenna and stay there.Posted: April 30, 2023
I loved Lake Como. It was on my bucket list to hike through the small villages nearby, and it was great. I stayed for a while but definitely needed more time. Como and Bellagio are nice, though the most touristy. The views there are great though. I did a pizza making class on Airbnb which was really fun also. I went to Lecco and did a really cool hike there where I could see where the lakes meet and walked through some of the town, would recommend. The small towns, maybe a bit boring for some, and mainly there were older people, but it was very peaceful.Posted: November 28, 2022
I went to Lake Como at the end of May. I stayed in the most stunning hostel in Domaso at the north of the lake called Lake Como Beach Hostel. The food and drinks at the hostel bar were super cheap. Varenno and Bellagio were quite expensive.Posted: November 22, 2022
