    Como - Lake Como

    September 8, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Well we mastered two trains to make it to Como. I think we are starting to get a hang of the transport system here.

    From here we are catching a bus to Lezzeno, our location for the next three nights, but we decided to store our luggage and check out Como on our way. It is nice location at the end of Lake Como, with a relaxing atmosphere and huge cathedral. I loved the colours of the Como Cathedral, with the use of orange and black stone, it was different to the other churches we have already seen. It was an impressive structure against the vivid blue sky.

    There was a service going on so we were unable to check out the interier of the cathedral, instead opting to enjoy a light and very delicious lunch under the shadow of the cathedral itself. While having lunch the service ended and we watched a procession of clergymen as they left the church. Not sure if they were from the local monastery but it was pretty cool to see.

    Como was a pleasant place to visit and one we could have spent more time in. Maybe next time.
