When Is The Best Time to Visit Lake Como? 

Floating platform at Varenna-Esino When Is The Best Time to Visit Lake Como?  As you can probably tell from the pictures (I have a jacket on) we went there during the winter, more specifically beginning of March. From our experience, any time that is not raining and not too cold (it was 15 C when we went) is a great time to visit. We could tell by the amount of tourist stores and information that in the spring/summer seasons it might get crowded, so despite how appetising a lake might sound in the summer, winter is your best bet if you want a peaceful and quiet visit. It almost felt like we were at a private island! Bonus: the mountains were still green but had snow at the tips… incredibly beautiful!
