Where I've Been Down Arrow

Discovering Como, Italy #inLombardia365

I’m pretty excited as I’m traveling to Como in Italy!

I’ve actually never been to mainland Italy (I’ve been to Sardinia) before despite traveling loads, so I’m really looking forward to exploring the area and everything it has to offer.

I’ll be mapping my route here as I go, checking in at restaurants, hotels, towns and lookout points. You’ll also be able to see my Instagram photos as I post them as well as keeping your eye on the #InLombardia365 twitter hashtag right here, on this page.

Why not bookmark and see what I get up to!?

I’ll be there from May 6th to the 8th, discovering the lake, Como itself, and some of the most beautiful spots in the area. I’ll be taking a tour of Brunate village and walking up to the lookout point the Faro Voltiano.

I’m also looking forward to tackling the Jungle Raider Park Xtreme where I’ll no doubt be trying so extreme zip lining!

Other highlights will include a visit to the Oasis of Baggero and Mill Museum plus a walking tour around Lecco city center and a boat tour to Garlate.

If you want to tweet at me, maybe you’ve been before and have some tips? Or thinking about going and have some questions? You can get hold of me @travmonkey or even leave a comment below!

Disclosure – I travelled to Italy as part of a project between iAmbassador and Lago di Como.
