If you are looking for a different type of destination that you will never forget you may want to consider Lake Como in Italy. Just a half an hour drive from Milan, you can escape the big city rustle and bustle and get swept away by a jewel-like oasis of tranquillity right in the heart of the Lake District of Lombardy. Since the Roman times Lake Como has been a popular destination among aristocrats and even to this day many celebrities have considered it a second home by purchasing lakeside villas, which eventually in modern times has put it on the map as a must see dream location for any jet-setter.

Lake Como is one of the largest lakes in Italy and is also claimed to have some of the most lush and beautiful scenery found in the world. From the panoramic views of the Grigna Mountains as a backdrop to the pristine and vibrant blue crystal clear waters of the lake itself to the lush green vegetation found around every corner, you won’t have to question whether or not you have actually found paradise.

Situated right on the shores of Lake Como you will find the architectually striking NH Pontevecchio hotel. Located right in the heart of Lecco and just minutes from the historic center of town, numerous cultural attractions, restaurants, high-end boutiques, and pedestrian areas, it’s a given that you will immediately fall in love with this charming and quaint city.
