i have been many times in Como and travelling around the lake, but it is only now, after reading this book, that I understand how much I missed and now, I can't wait to go there again. Italy in general - and Lake Como is no exception - is full of places with great cultural richness. But which cathedral to see, which villa to visit? The nice thing with this book is that you have impression of visiting the region with a good local friend who will tell you just enough to make you curious about the place. Next time I go to Como, I will not miss the Silk Museum, Loft restaurant on the 5th floor of Coin nor a concert at Villa Olmo. Great book, and so easy to carry around on my iPad.
