🍷 Visit North Italy: Lake Como 2019 4K | How To Spend A Day in Como | Local Experts

Hi guys! This travel guide is brought to you by a real
local! Si! Sono Italiano! We’ll guide you through: INTRODUCTION:
1) Lake Como, the town of Bellagio and Secret spots with zero tourists! 2) Famous Villa del Balbianello where James
Bond and Star Wars was filmed 3) Milan with its signature Galleria, the
main square piazza Duomo, the Sforzesco Castle, Free entrance to private rooftops and Italian
pre-dinner aperitivo. 4) Top cheap LOCAL eateries with no tourists. 5) 4 must visit architecture masterpieces
all close to each other 6) Bolzano and Merano city on the border with
Austria with fun train rides over the mountain ridge. 7) Angera town on the Maggiore Lake. Going to touristic places, following beaten
paths is boring! We don’t like boring stuff ! We take you to secret places that nobody knows! Enough with the pay this and pay that! For cheap car rental, accommodation and best
time to visit, maps and more, please skip to the end of the video. We recommend starting straight off the bat
with Lake Como! Not sure if you know but Lake Como is where
George Clooney had his summer residence since 2002, where many James Bond Casino Royale
and Star Wars scenes were shot! Lake Como is the third-largest lake in Italy. At over 400 metres deep, it’s one of the deepest
lakes in Europe. The bottom of the lake is more than 200 metres
below sea level!! Lake Como has been a popular retreat for aristocrats
and wealthy people since Roman times, and a very popular tourist attraction. It has many villas and palaces where many
famous people currently live. One place we absolutely recommend going to
is the Villa del Balbianello in the Lenno town: This Villa used to be an ancient monastery
from the 12th century. The history behind this Villa is insane, it
hosted important writers and protected politicians. During the Red brigade assassinations, the
underlying tunnels of the villa were used as safe escape passages. Why is this Villa so famous? Hollywood! This scene from James Bond Casino Royale was
filmed here in Villa del Balbianello. And this scene from Star Wars the attack of
the clones was filmed right here! Beautiful! Let’s sight see this place together. If you’re not interested, skip this video
for 1 minute. Total price for visiting this villa is 20
euros. If you only want to visit the garden then
it’s only 10 euros. if you’re an instagram maniac, this is where you have to take pictures In the area surrounding Lake Como there are
several farms which produce goods such as honey, olive oil, cheese, milk, eggs and salamis. Visitors can typically visit the farm itself
in person to make their purchases. In 2014, The Huffington Post called it the
most beautiful lake in the world for its microclimate and environment. Lake Como has a “Y” shape and is popular for
its landscapes, wildlife, and spas. It is a venue for sailing, windsurfing, and
kitesurfing. This place is just outstanding for it’s beautiful
architecture and nature, wonderful example of symbiosis and mutual respect between men
and environment. If you have time, before going to Bellagio
which is our next stop, do some trekking here at Lake Como Greenway. You can follow the path up to the above hills
and stop at several monasteries or restaurants. You’ll find many small little farmers selling
their home made products. Try this place: alpe di lenno ! We recommend reaching the San Benedetto Monastery. It’s 8.2 km however it’s well worth it! The place is extremely rewarding. To reach Bellagio you can either drive there
or take your car on the ferry from here: Cadenabbia ferry terminal. Bellagio is a town within Lake Como. If you’ve enjoyed the views so far, believe
us it’s about to get way better. Bellagio has always been famous for its location
upon a tip of land that divides Lake Como in two. Since the town is located on a steep hill,
as you walk up the alleys and you turn towards the lake, you’ll witness the best postcard
view ever. It is unique during daytime, night time but
mostly during sunset. It’s just incredibly romantic. Our top favorites are walking through the
town and: 1) Taking this signature picture of Bellagio
once you reach the top of this alley. This is the place we recommend for that perfect
picture. 2) Taking a coffee at Bar Sport in the main
square next to the San Giacomo Church: grab yourself an italian espresso ask for “caffè
lungo”, don’t add any milk or sugar and have it by the tables outside. Relax and enjoy the the quietness! Alternatively take an Aperol Spritz if the
weather is hot! 3) We recommend antichi sapori Bistrot. This place has pizza for 7 euros. That’s a bargain! 4) Walk to The punta spartivento Observation
Deck and witness the dramatic views and relaxing tranquility this beautiful lake offers. Be Italian and smoke a cigar! We recommend antico toscano. If you’re a fan of instagram, this is a good
spot. Trust us! 5) Visit our secret spot for the best sunset
ever to be seen. And it’s zero tourists guaranteed! We’ve never witnessed such a beautiful sunset
cause it’s a double sunset, one above the mountain range and one reflected in the lake. It’s truly majestic and humbling. Go to via valassina and turn up to the hill. Walk up the stone paved alley till you reach
farmer fields. To your right you’ll find a field with olive
trees going down a steep hill towards the lake. Take your wine and food here and enjoy the
best pic nic of your life! We felt like this moment made the entire holiday. Not exaggerating. Support us by liking, subscribing and sharing
our videos! Motivation is our key to success and we need
a lot of it! Before you leave Bellagio, you must try: The traditional dish Tóch. Eaten with a wooden spoon, it is made of polenta
(in english boiled cornmeal) mixed with butter and cheese, accompanied with dried fish from
the lake, cold stuffed chicken or home-made salami. Since there’s so much content to fit in one
single episode, we’ll be doing a 4 episode travel guide. You can find all of our episodes in the link

time and travel efforts. You may modify our itinerary as much as you

September. You need about 7 full days to do it all and
you’ll need to rent a car. Without it you’ll be traveling by bus or train
and it’ll cost you more money and time. So DON’T! If you want to rent a car, we recommend economycarrentals.com

  27. Love your video on Lago di Como. Your explanations are fantastic with suggestions and costs. Well done and keep it up. All the best and regards from Valencia

  28. Complimenti un video ben fatto , anche se ci sono altre cose da vedere a Como come il tram 🚋 che porta in alto sopra Como
    Consiglio vivamente prendendo la Funicolare sul bordo del Lago di Como fino alla montagna a Brunate.
    Facile da trovare, sulla sponda destra si affaccia sul lago e a 5 minuti a piedi dalla stazione dei treni.
    Ci vogliono circa 10 minuti per arrivare in cima.
    E per quelli di voi che sono affamati, ci sono due piccoli ristoranti nella parte superiore.
    Ci sono molte cose da vedere e un sacco di zone di visualizzazione per ottenere le foto migliori.
    Ci sono un sacco di piccole strade e sentieri escursionistici

  29. beautifull, but it seems that all around the como lake there s a lot of tourist even in the hotels all year long….peacefull holidays seems impossible.

  30. You speak really good English – and you have almost no accent. Since I am a writer and teach English — among other things — I CARE! Brava! If you want to know the 2 or 3 little errors you made in this video you can find me on Facebook.

  31. You know that you created a new way to communicate/share a Super interesting and informative story.
    I love it!!!
    By the way, because your video I’ll be visiting Lake Como by end of October this year and I need a recommendation from you. I’ll be renting a car, so which location is best for staying during 3 days there?
    Many many many thanks in advance!

  32. I was going to different cities and villas of Lake Como by boats having a ticket valid for 2 days(jump in-jump out)and the price was affordable. Well, that was some time ago. Very beautiful and impressive.

  33. Hi, This video was very informative and detailed, loved it. Happy to see 6+K Subscribers
    So my question is what will be the best and cheapest mode of transport if someone isn't comfortable with driving! We two girls are visiting Como this month-end and are not sure of transportation in Como. Can you help us with this?

  34. Absolutely fantastic video.. Best travel video ever,especially the Google earth and maps integration.
    WELL DONE 👏👏and I look forward to other videos from Italy with a similar format.

  35. We live here and we are sorry you did not mention Dascio, to the Northern most part of Lake Como! The natural beauty and that it is also a wildlife resverve as well as it being a different pace than all the touristical villages!
