Some of the streets are cobbled and are lined with different shops, café’s and gelaterie. Don’t miss photographing some of the old windows and flowered balconies.
What do we think is really NOT to be MISSED?!? A visit to the Beretta bakery. It is worth a trip to buy La Nuvola. It is a loaf of paradise! It is more than I would normally pay for a sweet bread (I believe it was about 10 Euros), but it is just incredible! I even attempted to make a bread similar one time, and it was a great bread, but not the same!
If you are spending more than one day in Como and have seen all the sites, do as the Italians do and enjoy the people watching in a piazza! Take the time to enjoy a GELATO!
If you are visiting Piazza Cavour, which is right across from the lakeside, you will find plenty of benches to catch the locals passionately discussing politics. Head over to an outdoor café’ in Piazza Duomo to have a drink or a coffee and relax.
