Do you want to see the fireworks from the mainland?


Fireworks on lake

During summer Lake Como lights up at night with spectacular fireworks, usually from June to August.

Not only the villages but also the 5-star hotels organize their own evening with fireworks. There are always lots of people on the mainland and it’s hard to find a place.

You need to get there first to park and to find the perfect place to see the show.

Watching the fireworks from the mainland could become very stressful.

Discover the fireworks on Lake Como by boat!
