"Set in the shadow of the snow-covered Rhaetian Alps and hemmed in on both sides by steep wooded hills, Lake Como (aka Lake Lario) is the most spectacular of the region's three major lakes. Shaped like an upside-down Y (or an armless wanderer), its winding shoreline is dotted with ancient villages and exquisite villas." (Lonely Planet)

Home for centuries to the rich and famous, it is now perhaps best known as the place where George (and Amal and the twins) Clooney has a villa on the Lake. It is also the site of many of the finest hotels in Italy (like the Villa D'Este), as well as the Villa Balbianello (where one of the Star Wars movies was shot).

Como is an area I know and love well. This poster is from my own collection, and it is in excellent condition.
