There are some car parks on the outskirts of town. As always we recommend making sure your accommodation has a car park before making your booking.
George Clooney and his cronies love Lake Como. Lecco is the second largest town on the lake, and makes the perfect base for exploring the less touristic eastern shores. You might not spot George, but we’re sure you’ll have a great time anyway.
