Lake Como. A luxurious resort in northern Italy, at the foot of the Alps with the picturesque towns on its shores creating a magical landscape and a sense of other times. The lake is shaped like an inverted Y, with three thin branches meeting in the town of Bellagio. At the southwest point is the homonymous town of Como, with Renaissance architecture and a cable car going up to the mountain town of Brunate. Enjoy the beauty of Villa d’Este, Passalacqua and Villa del Balbianello with their lush gardens, panoramic scenic walks and luxurious boat rides on the sparkling waters through the idyllic picturesque Lake Como Idyll. The book promises a magical Italian getaway full of romance, charm and breathtaking scenery. Born in Milan, author Massimo Nava promises readers a faithful depiction of the true landscapes of Lake Como, with Lake Como Idyll coming out next June from Assouline.
