>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 the near vicinity, there is Lido di Ossuccio and Lido di Lenno. In other little towns, there are more tiny beaches and lakeside bars. Lido di Bellagio and pebbly San Giovanni beach will be waiting for those who wish to cross the waters and explore the beautiful town of Bellagio. Locals and visitors also enjoy traveling to Nesso on the other coast 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.
