Como is also Europe’s silk capital and offers several historic silk shops and outlet stores where you can buy scarves, ties or other accessories. It is definitely a memorable day trip from Milan you shouldn’t miss.
It is considered one of the most important artistic monuments in Northern Italy. The interior has some precious tapestries of the 16th and 17th century. The cathedral of Como is famous for its door on the left side called the “door of the frog” due to a carved frog decoration.
It is a medieval building built in the 11th century. The appearance of Broletto Palace is austere and there are few decorative elements. The bell tower used to call the citizens to the meetings. Today it houses cultural events and exhibitions.
If you are in Como, you must visit Villa Olmo, a fine example of Italian classical style. The interiors are rich in statues, frescoes and decorations. The Italian and English gardens in front and behind the villa provide a relaxing time for the tourists.
