    Bought this book as a gift for my sister who is going to Lake Como for a holiday. I was pleased with the book but disappointed the illustrations were only black and white.
    NOTE: this was an OLD edition, the current edition has full-color illustrations. (Enrico)

    My husband and I loved this book, written by a man who was a native. He mentioned his favorite restaurants and favorite things to do in the villages surrounding Lake Como. Very helpful
