Mid-July Vacation on Lake Como Italy

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 (parents age 47 and children aged 14 and 16). We are considering a 10 day summer vacation somewhere on Lake Como rather than trying to join the sweaty masses on the Amalfi coast.

We would like to hear about personal experiences (must see places, must do daily excursions/activities; also "what not to do") and where to stay for a good "base of operations" (town and hotel).

We are also concerned about our teens becoming bored - they do enjoy museums, history, and culture. However, they can also burnout on these activities after 3-4 days. Keeping them entertained and interested for the entire holiday is a very important consideration.

Any and all advice/tips about traveling to Lake Como for a summer family vacation is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
Darryl & Cathy
