Parolario, the Book Festival on Lake Como
Parolario is an engaging Festival dedicated to books that takes place on Lake Como. Since 2001 every year it has been very successful with numerous visits: tourists, visitors and Como people. What makes this Festival so interesting is the opportunity to meet directly with great artists such as writers, scientists, literate, philosophers, poets, thanks to events and sharing moments distributed across the entire Lake Como’s territory.
Where is the Parolario Festival?
The head office of Parolario is Villa Olmo in Como, embraced by its lovely park that stretches gently on the lake. Other locations in Como are Villa del Grumello and Villa Sucota – of the Antonio Ratti Foundation. Moving from Como, you could live “Parolario” also in Cernobbio, at Villa Bernasconi, a splendid liberty jewel, or in Brunate, at the library.

How to get to the Parolario’s Festival from our Hotel Posta in Moltrasio?
You can choose the car: you will arrive at your destination in a short time, along the Lake Como. Cernobbio is about 5 minutes away, Como about 15 minutes. To reach Brunate we suggest you take the traditional funicular that will allow you a stunning view of the city.
By boat: a solution that we recommend (in front of our Hotel you find the boat) for comfort and to enjoy the wonders of our lake in a unique way. In Como take a short walk to Villa Olmo or head for the Brunate funicular.
When you arrive at Hotel please ask for further information at the reception desk. We wait for you to help you organize your visit to the Parolario Festival.
