Lago di Como

Dubbed as one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe, where aristocrats and famous people have homes on the gorgeous banks of Lago di Como or Lake Como
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.
