Beautiful apartment in historic Como

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully furnished with a large window overlooking a piazza and a glimpse of the mountains. Giovanni was very helpful in getting us settled in and gave us some fascinating historical information about the building. When in Como do the lakeside promenade, take a walk through the historic area, take the funicular to Brunate and cruise up the lake for some outstanding vistas. Como is an elegant city with lovely shops. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would be pleased to stay there again.

Convenient central apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in a very good location, close to lots of restaurants and within an easy walk to all the major sites. The apartment is very comfortable and over looks a lovely square. It was clean and nicely decorated. On arrival in Como we got lost finding the apartment, it was late and we were very tired after a long journey, however I called Giovanni who looks after the apartment and he kindly came and found us and took us to the apartment. There are quite a few stairs up to the apartment and no lift, it wasn't a problem for us, but may be for those less mobile. We had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this apartment ,

Fantastic location and comfortable apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment was ideal for the two of us and centrally located in City Centre. We felt apart of the local neighborhood filled with great restaurants and shops close by. Upon arrival Giovanni made us feel at home providing recommendations for dining and local attractions. He also provided us with a private tour of Roman artifacts located within the apartment building....just ask you will be pleasantly surprised!

We fell in love with Como and loved our view overlooking the Menizzi Piazza. We will definetly return and would highly recommend Blustella to friends and family!

Lombardy ( Lombardia) is one of the twenty regions of Italy. The capital city is Milan. One-sixth of Italy's population lives in Lombardy the most populous and richest region in the Country and one of the richest in the whole of Europe.

The climate of this region is continental, though with variations depending on altitude or the presence of inland waters. Lake Como weather is generally mild. It is known for its Mediterranean-like climate where tropical and sub-tropical plants can grow year-round. In the winter, the lake helps to maintain a higher temperature in the surrounding region.

Old town centre of Como is only for pedestrians so that you can enjoy strolling about the small streets (via) or sitting by cafeterias in the squares (piazza), steeped in the town's every day’s real life.

Como is really picturesque: shaped as in a grid inside the medieval walls, everything is at hand though, from restaurants to shops and supermarkets.

During Summer you can enjoy bathing at Villa Olmo's swimming pool (Lido) which is at the left end of the lake promenade at 15-20 mins walking distance from the apartments.

In two minutes walking you can get to the lake promenade, boat jetties, railway and bus stations and Brunate's funicular (cable-rail). There is good train service to Milan (about every half hour) as well as major exhibition centres such as Fiera Milano Rho.

There is also a good service from Malpensa Airport to Como (Malpensa express train): change at Saronno to Como.

In town there is a wide choice of typical restaurants, pizzerias and shops and also markets, museums, banks, pharmacies, and supermarkets.
