The center of the city of Cernobbio can be reached by a beautiful 10-minute walk, going downhill. If going uphill, the road continues up to Monte Bisbino for those wishing to face an adventurous hike into nature, enjoying breathtaking views of the entire first branch of Lake Como.
For the guests' convenience, we suggest to arrive by car.
Traveling to and from Cernobbio is also quite easy with public transport. There is an ASF Autolinee bus stop right next to the property, and numerous bus lines can take you to Como city and other lakeside towns. Tickets can be obtained from the driver (cash only) or in designated places in Cernobbio or Como. Please note that the buses don't run very often and services stop at around 10 pm! Taxi rides are available, but not easily attainable in the region.

The Greenway goes through the little towns from Colonno to Griante. From Cernobbio, you can get to the starting point in Colonno by bus. Another pleasant and laid-back hiking path in the area is Via Verde which connects Moltrasio to Laglio.

>Lake Como is one of the deepest lakes in Europe and the deepest in Italy. Swimming and diving are prohibited in many areas and can be dangerous. For those who wish to dwell in the water, however, there are some options. In Cernobbio, the lakeside Lido has a swimming pool. In nearby Moltrasio, there is a little beach. In Como city, there is an outdoor pool near Villa Olmo, but swimming in the lake is mostly not recommended or forbidden. Locals and visitors also enjoy traveling to Nesso where the bravest swimmers can jump into the lake from the ancient Roman bridge near the waterfall.
>Lake Como is located in a mountainous region. The surrounding pre-Alps might not seem very high, but the climate is nevertheless affected by the nearby mountains, and temperatures can change quickly.
