Starting from the Antiquarium Museum, near which you can visit the Romanesque church of St. Mary Magdalene with it’s famous Gothic tower, you embark on the waters of the lake, crossing the so-called “Zoca de l’oli” to reach the Comacina Island.

Very enjoyable walk round the island. Lovely spot for a picnic, and there are clean free loos. The cafe is massively overpriced.

We stayed on the island for a cocktail, after reaching it by boat. It was pleasant and relaxing, rather unusual setting. Make sure you go there on a sunny day for best experience. Island offers bars and restaurants, all of them picturesque.

If you do nothing else while you are in the Lake Como region, have lunch at Isola Comacina. The view of the lake and surrounding area is spectacular and the food was delicious with an entertaining presentation.

We were hear because of lunch. We got to walk around the island. It's small and beautiful but I wouldn't make the trip just for the walking.

Nice peaceful spot. Roman ruins and a church at the top of the hill. Confident swimmers can swim here from Lido Ossuccio - boat drivers are vigilant.

You DO NOT have to do the private boat taxi...you can go to the little town of Ossuccio, to the Antiquarium, across from Isola Comacina and buy a ticket on the Barchetta for about 6 Euro pp. It will take you directly over to... More
