A Glimpse at the Stunning Sunsets of Lake Como

"Sunset is the opening music of the night."
- Mehmet Murat ildan

With rolling hills and the glass-like water stretching as far as the eye can see, the natural beauty of Lake Como is astounding.  What’s more, when the day comes to a close, the sky becomes a canvas of the most spectacular colours, and if you’re in the right spot, you can sit back and watch the show with your favourite drink in hand. There no better way to top off a relaxing day on the lake, than with front row seats to a Como sunset. The best spot to enjoy the sunset is in Blevio near villa Troubetzkoy, which is owned by the leader of Apple Europe, Pascal Cagni. In Blevio, the sun sets in a gap between the mountains, just behind Villa Erba. When the weather is clear, you can see the peak of the second highest mountain in Italy, Monte Rosa. When the sun hits the mountain, it paints the sky with a beautiful rose-pink blush that throws a soft hue over sleepy Como. Just to give you an idea of what you’ve been missing, or to awaken the nostalgia of previous visits, we’ve compiled a photoblog of the best Lake Como sunsets for you to enjoy.
