Located on the shores of the lake sharing its name, Como is a city which has been a popular holiday destination for hundreds of years. Frequented by nobles and royals of Europe, the area is now well known the rest of the world, and easily accessible with a rental car. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Como, Italy, is both easy and economical.
With great weather and fresh air accompanying the beautiful scenery that surrounds Como, it's easy to see why it is so highly regarded as a place to unwind and relax. Many of the grand villas in the area in which the wealthy once stayed have been preserved in all their glory, and simply touring along the coast in your hire car you can see many fine examples.
For an amazing view of the area, park your rental car behind Como, and take the funicular railway up the steep slopes to the village of Brunate, located hundreds of metres above the lake. Beside the town is the Volta Lighthouse, named after Alessandro Volta, the inventor of the battery, who was a local to the area. The lighthouse offers additional height, from the top of which you will get panoramic views of the lake and city below, and on clear days see as far as the Alps.
As a lakeside destination, summer is when Como really comes alive. If you are here during the warmer months of the year, why not hire a boat or canoe for the day and head off to explore the waters. Alternatively, you can book tours of the lake, and simply park your hire car near the marina and head off for a day on the water seeing some amazing local sights.
