Historical Paddle Steamer on Lake Como
Ciao amici, for your Lake Como vacation you should necessarily plan a trip on one of the historical paddle steamer. The “Patria” and “Concordia” were built in 1926 and celebrate the 90th anniversary this year.
Another paddle steamer on Lake Como, the “Milano”, even dates back to 1904. These ships were originally built as a so-called half parlor boats. In those days vessels of this type were also operating on other larger lakes such as Lake Lucerne.
I love these ship veterans, where a breeze of the Belle Epoque is streaming through the elegant nouveau parlors. What is more beautiful than gliding along on Lake Como on a sunny day with one of these comfortable boats, gazing at completely new perspectives of the majestic mountains, the magnificent villas and the picturesque towns on its banks.
You will find more interesting details about the Lake Como fleet in my E-Book in German language Comer See Reisehäppchen.
I am looking forward to making my first cruise this year on Lake Como. Will you come along with me?
Tanti saluti e a presto
