All you need to know for a Lake Como Boat Hire


Lined with charming villages and handsome villas, Lake Como is a glamorous escape in the foothills of the Alps. See the best of it from your own Lake Como boat rental.

Lake Como stretches 46 kilometres through the Lombardy region in northern Italy. Located at the foothills of the Italian Alps, it’s overflowing with natural beauty. Charming villages cascade towards the shore, with pastel-hued facades illuminated by the dappled light that only occurs where mountains and lake meet.

As a playground to the rich and famous, handsome villas line the shore with manicured gardens that reach towards yachts tied to private jetties.

But both movie stars and mortals can enjoy taking to the water. Hire a boat on Lake Como and chart your own course. Cross the lake from one beautiful village to the next, find a secluded beach for a swim, then moor up at a restaurant for lunch under a wisteria-draped patio.

Lake Como boats can be hired for as little as 1 hour or for as long as a whole day. With so many sights lining the lake, we’ve designed a few suggested itineraries to help you make the most of your time on the water.

The boats are very easy to drive even for the inexperienced. However, if you want to sit back and relax, you can hire a captain and sip champagne while you take in the sights.

Here’s all you need to know for hiring a boat on Lake Como including what to see, where to hire from and most importantly, the best restaurants to moor up to for lunch.
