Colonno Area Guide
The village of Colonno on Lake Como is an extremely quaint former fishing village, located along the Via Regina, between Argegno and Sala Comacina – the area is known locally as the “Zoca de l’oli”, that is the “oil basin”, because the waters of the lake are usually as smooth as oil.
The village has ancient origins. It was once inhabited by fishermen and farmers. Nowadays it has conserved its typical medieval architectural structure, with each house leaning against the next one.
Behind the village, on the steep slopes of the mountain you can still see the terracing and walls built years ago for the cultivation of the fragrant herbs, which the inhabitants would sell along with fish and fresh dairy products to peddlers who went around the province with a basket on their backs.
Nowadays the village’s economy is based mainly on tourism and attracts many new tourists each year. Most of the accommodation is located up from the lakeside road, affording amazing panoramic views – some of the best on the lake! ...Read Less
