Lake of Como

The Lakes of Northern Italy
The lakes of the North, at the foot of the majestically mountain chain of the Alps, are mainly of glacial origin. Among these are
Lake Garda (the largest lake in Italy), Lake Como (the deepest), Lake Maggiore, Lake Iseo and Lake Orta. The environment around these lakes is mostly alpine, and is ideal for winter holidays, thanks to the mitigating action of the waters and the presence of the mountains.

The Other Italian Lakes
In Umbria,
Lake Trasimeno is Italy's fourth-largest lake.
In Latium, to the north of Rome, the province of Viterbo contains two charming lakes:
Lake Bolsena and Lake Vico. In the Alban Hills (Colli Albani) there is Lake Albano, South East of Rome and Lake Nemi located east of Rome. Lake Bracciano lies just at North West of Rome
