The Lake Como's territory has always offered a huge amount of breathtaking landscapes. Today we are talking about one of the oasis born thanks to the typical conformation of the small lakes that are surrounding Lake Como: the "Lago di Piano" nature reserve.
Valtellina is a real Wine land, it has a particular arrangement: it makes the weather perfect for viticulture. For that reason on the Rhaetian Alps side of the valley over the centuries have been built over 2500 kilometers of drystone walls. A great work that supports the terraced vineyards from which the important Valtellina wines are born.
The Como Lake is famous for it’s grand villas with ancient gardens of un-describable beauty, like for example Villa Olmo, a neoclassical architectural gem, and furthermore, important cultural center of the city if Como, which we will be visiting together today.
