    Colico is an important town situated near the northern tip of Lake Como, Italy.

    Things to do in Colico, Italy

    Being situated on Lake Como, Colico is an excellent destination for water sports enthusiasts, with windsurfing, sailing and kite surfing just some of the activities on offer. Newcomers can pay for lessons and the more experienced can hire equipment and get started straight away.

    After a hard day on the water there are a decent selection of bars and restaurants to relax in, and a nightclub if you fancy carrying on into the early hours. Most of the nightlife is situated in the most attractive part of Colico - the lakeside piazza, which also has a range of ice cream parlours, pizzerias and a market, as well as various shops on it.

    Colico is dominated by Monte Legnone, which rises over 2600m, and is the highest mountain on the lake. A few kilometres south of the city, and standing at the foot of Monte Legnone stands the Abbey of Piona. This Clunaic monastery is open to the public, and houses various collections of Byzantine artworks. The Romanesque cloister was built in 1257, and from here you can also get a panoramic view of the lake.

    Another landmark well worth a visit is the Montecchio Fortress. Built entirely of concrete and stone, it is the only Italian World War 1 fort that is still intact, and houses the four largest cannons in the country.
