Private Como Walking Tour

Sightseeing, Walking
Meet your private guide and visit the architectural wonders of the city. Como’s crowning jewel is its Duomo, a stellar cathedral that was started in 1396 and constructed over the course of four centuries! It has a lovely blend of styles through those years, including Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Frescoes, paintings, stained glass and sculptures decorate the vast interior. The Broletto is a building dating to 1215 with a Gothic facade in marble, now the home of the Town Hall and the civic theater, which hosts exhibits. The charming Piazza San Fedele retains its medieval character and is dedicated to Como’s patron saint. Enjoy an evocative experience along the west shore of lake Como where you can admire many neoclassical villas built between the eighteenth and the nineteenth century. In 1959, the local government created a “romantic promenade” offering citizens and tourists wonderful itinerary rich of beautiful sights and elegant buildings. After this relaxing walking tour, you will reach the town of Brunate by the Como-Brunate cable car. This historic single-track funicular railway has been carrying passengers up and down the steep mountain slope between the lakeside city of Como and the village of Brunate since 1894. The 7-minute ride passes through a scenic stretch of countryside with sweeping views over Italy’s Lake Como as far as the Swiss Alps. The town of Brunate saw the invention of the holiday resort with the construction of sumptuous villas of the rich bourgeoisie which dominate the breathtaking panorama over the city
