The name Cernobbio is derived from 'Coenobium', which was an old convent, built where the magnificent hotel Villa D'Este is now situated, at the foot of Monte Bisbino, which is reputedly one of the most luxurious hotels in the world.
Cernobbio is a really pretty town and the old part, dating back to the thirteenth century, winds its way along the edge of the lake where you will find wonderful shops and restaurants. The picturesque houses, narrow streets and alley ways all add to its great atmosphere.
There are many sights to see and places to visit, including the Church of St Michele di Rovenna where you will see an eleventh century Romanesque Processional Cross and also a carved baroque alter, which was designed by G.B. Barberini. Villa Pizzo, originally built in the sixteenth century, also has a vast park with a wide variety of plants. The route up to Monte Bisbino is truly spectacular, which stands at 1.325 meters, and the views across to the Swiss mountains are absolutely breathtaking.
Lombardy - Lake Como Area:
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.
It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.
All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.
Warming, in spring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.
