Isola Comacina has a very interesting history and there are a number of ruins that date from the early Christian period. Definitely worth a day's visit!

Very enjoyable walk round the island. Lovely spot for a picnic, and there are clean free loos. The cafe is massively overpriced.

We stayed on the island for a cocktail, after reaching it by boat. It was pleasant and relaxing, rather unusual setting. Make sure you go there on a sunny day for best experience. Island offers bars and restaurants, all of them picturesque.
