Explore Como

Besides the stunning scenery, no visit to Como is complete without seeing the historic sights clustered in the walled Old Town. Interesting buildings include the cathedral, which is a superb example of differing architectural styles, and the medieval walls themselves, complete with the spectacular standing tower of Porta Vittoria and the great basilica of San Corpoforo.

A scenic walking tour takes in the lake’s western perimeter where you can see the Tempio Voltiano, a classic marble temple housing the tools of Alessandro Volta - a pioneer in electricity. A further walk in this direction takes you to the wild park and it's formal gardens of Villa del l’Olmo, a sumptuous lake home named after a Roman elm forest.

As one of Europe’s most chic resorts, Como abounds in quality eateries and designer shopping. But if you are after bargains, then visit the market in the Piazza San Fedele, which is held on the first Saturday of every month.

On the outskirts of Como is Cernobbio, with an old town featuring pretty traditional houses with small, confined alleys, and not forgetting the most impressive hotels in Europe, the Villa D’Este - with its huge sumptuous rooms and floating swimming pool's. Travel north and you will reach Lake Como’s island, called Isola Comacina.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
