Today we decided to make use of the local bus and ferry services to explore the northern end of Lake Como. We caught the C10 bus to its final stop, Colico, the northernmost town on the eastern shore of the lake. We had plenty of time to enjoy the lovely square with its fountain and to walk along the promenade. To the north there was an area set aside for water sports. After a picnic by the lake we were able to relax over a cappuccino before catching the slow ferry back to Tremezzo.
The journey back took over two hours but was fantastic. The scenery at the northern end of the lake is very dramatic with the tiny villages backed by high mountains.
It was a perfect day for photography and I took lots of photos as the ferry called in at all the villages.
Gravedona. Together with Dongo and Sorico, Gravedona once formed the Medieval republic of Tre Pievi.
