Albergo Del Duca: A great little hotel

We are just back from a short stay in Como where we celebrated our Coral Anniversary. We spotted the great reviews of the Albergo Del Duca on Tripadvisor and decided to go for it. No regrets. A charming little hotel, lovely room overlooking the quiet and atmospheric piazza, great restaurant downstairs with pizzas which are exceptionally good and a very good wine list. The staff were all helpful and very welcoming.

Como is a great small city with a beautiful Duomo and intriguing medieval streets to explore, and lots of classy shops. From the hotel it is a short walk to the lakeside where we got the boat for a day trip to Bellagio, one of Italy's most beautiful towns.

Highly recommended.
