There is a rich variety of picturesque resort towns and attractions and sport activities to explore and enjoy on the north of Lake Como, with the famous lake front town of Gravedona which is just a 9 minute’s drive away and which boasts beautiful architecture, a fascinating Spanish military history as well as its wide variety of modern day amenities and lakefront cafes and restaurants, which offer spectacular views of the lake. Each summer the town also enjoys boat races, gastronomic food festivals and firework displays.

Local activities along the central and north western shore include hiking, cycling, football, swimming, sailing, kite-surfing, tennis, golf and quad-biking. Skiing in the family-friendly Italian ski resort of Madesimo is just a 70 minutes drive away from Vercana and provides a fun-packed day out for beginners and experienced skiers.

It is possible to hire a wide variety of motor boats for the day in nearby Domasso, providing really the most memorable way of seeing Lake Como; from the water! On the water you can pass the beautiful resort towns and villas of Menaggio and Tremezzo and be inspired by the Griante hillside which is all on breathtaking display along the Tremezzina shore. Seeing Varenna, Bellagio and Villa Balbianello from the lake is also a magical experience and one not to be missed!

The lake road which runs along the western shore also ensures easy access to Como city and Lake Lugano and a frequent air-conditioned lake bus runs a reliable service throughout the year.

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
