Looking for a relaxing and satisfying visit to gorgeous Lake Como? Our lovely Gravedona vacation homes may be just what you need!
If you're an art buff, pay a visit to the Church of Santa Maria del Tiglio, built in the 12th century, for exquisite late Romanesque art and a tower with views of the surrounding terrain. The 17-century Church of San Vincenzo is another must-see for visitors interested in ancient art and history. Step inside the walls of this church and view statues, paintings, frescoes, and marble finishes.
A visit to the late Romanesque Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, built in the 16th century, offers beautiful frescoes painted by local artists from centuries past, and you'll also be treated to a beautiful view of the city and the lake.
Venture out for a hike and take in the natural wonders of the area. Walk along the bank path toward Dongo, or explore the many trails in Liro and Livo valleys. Another lovely walk is through the Park of Valle Albano in Germasino, one of the several hamlets within Gravedona.
Take the Volta tour and learn about Alessandro Volta, inventor of the electric battery, and his influence in Como. Visit his modest home, explore charming Piazza Volta, then move on to the Volta Museum, which houses memorabilia from the inventor's life and work.
Come revel in the beauty of Lake Como and reserve a stay in one of our Gravedona vacation rentals today!
