Meet your guide at Piazza Cavour, a beautiful square facing the lake, and then move on to Piazza Volta and Piazza Mazzini, both commercial centers during the Middle Ages and still now lively areas full of shops, bars, and restaurants. Discover all the city's major landmarks such as the imposing Como Cathedral and San Fedele Romanic Basilica. See more monuments on your way, including Porta Torre, the city's main fortified tower.
