What's Como Like?

Duomo Square is the site of the Como Cathedral, a fine example of Gothic architecture and one of the last of its kind to be built. Italians know it better by its local name - the Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It dominates the square and is easily the most impressive structure in the entire city of Como. Its interiors are mostly made of marble with generous gold inlay and numerous stained glass windows. The Tempio Voltiano is a science museum named after Como's native son, Alessandro Volta, who was a celebrated and respected Italian physicist and the inventor of the first electric battery. Villa Olmo is an 18th-century sprawling neoclassical structure located right on the lake's shore. The interior as well as the grounds of this property are now used mostly for exhibits. There is a spacious and well-maintained garden at the back of Villa Olmo that is open to the public. One of Venere's Como hotels can put you right in the heart of this exciting city and within a short walking or driving distance to its most famous landmarks.
