Located in the northern part of Italy in the region of Lombardy. Lake Como, shaped like a letter Y, is the third largest lake in Italy and one of the deepest lakes in Europe. It is a famous tourist destination for its landscapes, scenery, lakeside villas, luxury hotels, cozy restaurants and a lot of other things.
Mentioned by different novelists/writers on their novels/works, Lake Como is also a favorite video/movie location. Movies like A month by Lake wherein it was filmed in different locations around the lake; Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and James Bond Movie: Casino Royale were shot at the lakeside Villa del Balbianello ; Ocean's Twelve and Gwen Stefani's music video Cool were both filmed at Villa Erba.
