Once inhabited by Ancient Romans, this stunning corner of Lake Como has plenty of delight to offer - old and new. Our Pognana Lario rental homes and villas sit on the edge of the water, so feast your eyes on the mountain and lake views that surround you. This former mining town is a perfect destination for those looking to stay outside the hustle and bustle of nearby Bellagio, but enjoy all that the gorgeous Lombardy region has to offer.
Pognana Lario is a town in the Italian region of Lombardy, located about 40 miles north of historic Milan and about 9 miles northeast of the town of Como. Head a little farther north to visit glamorous Bellagio, where you can indulge in some of the region's finest dining and shopping.
Perhaps the most scenic way to explore Pognana Lario's surroundings is by boat. Whether you're riding the Como ferry or taking a private speedboat tour, be sure to spend some time on pristine Lake Como savoring your surroundings.
Here in Pognana Lario, the wonderfully preserved historic buildings are a big draw. Pack your camera and pay a visit to the twelfth-century Church of Saint Miro, tucked away in the hamlet of Rovasco. Inside, you'll find Byzantine frescoes of St. Cristofero and the Madonna, a beautiful piece of history.
Pognano Lario's festival days light up the town with excitement, from the Festival of Dumplings in August to the Festival of Cakes right after Easter. If you're in the mood to dine out while you're here, Ristorante La Meridiana offers fresh Italian fare in a cozy atmosphere. Exploring Pognana Lario is easy thanks to the bus route and the ferry that stop here!
