Easter on Lake Como
Cari amici, are you longing for a little sunshine, the scent of spring and wonderful flowerage? Bene! Then come and visit Lake Como on Easter. Temperatures are already pleasant here and countless magnolias and camellias unfold its delicate blossoms .
Como City offers you something very special! An extraordinary Easter market takes place from Holy Thursday to Easter Monday in the city center at Viale Varese: the “Fiera del Santo Giovedi”.
This very popular and well-known market attracts many visitors from near and far. One reason may be the most versatile and comprehensive offer of local products, Easter decorations, textiles, household goods, leather goods and sweet treats. In any case you must try the typical, delicious brioche, offered in the form of a peace dove: The Colomba di Pasqua.
My tip: Let your car when you visit the “Fiera del Santo Giovedi”. Finding a parking space can be annoying. There are very good bus service to Como from almost any village around the lake.
Or induldge yourself in a boat trip and enjoy the splendid natural panorama of Lake Como from a different point of view. You’ll need about 10 min. by foot from the shipping pier to the “Fiera del Santo Giovedi”.
For those who would like to be on Lake Como on Easter, but unfortunately have to stay at home, I’ve a sweet consolation. On our recipe page you find the instructions for the typical Italian Easter cake Colomba di Pasqua.
Buona Pasqua e buon appetito.
Tanti saluti e a presto
