A Stop in the City of Como

Last week a posted about a stop we made on our last day in Italy when a driver took us from Bellagio back to Milan.  We made one other stop that day, this time in the city of Como.

We were there for two hours to do a little exploring and to have some lunch.  The first place we visited was the Duomo di Como or the Como Cathedral.  Construction on this fabulous church began in 1396.

After visiting the cathedral, we just explored the streets and enjoying the look of this city, one of the largest on Lake Como.

Como was a lot bigger than Bellagio and the cities around the area where we had spent most of our time.  I enjoyed seeing all the sidewalk cafes full of people.

In fact, we stopped at one of those wonderful cafes where I enjoyed a beautifully arranged plate of Parma ham and melon.  It tasted every bit as good as it looked.

During the short time we spent in Como, I could see that it was another beautiful city with a lot to offer.  The Lake Como region is truly a jewel in Italy's crown.

Truly a jewel. And that plate you enjoyed at the sidewalk cafe is a jewel, too. It makes my mouth water.

I loved m visit there. Rode the bus which was a boat from village to village wishing we had time to get off and visit each.

Gorgeous! The cathedral is spectacular and the streets very inviting. And that looks like a memorable plate (now I'm very hungry).
