Surrounded by villages and magnificent villas with Italian Renaissance-style gardens, Lake Como offers a rich tapestry of history. Explore the villages by car or ferry, from lantern-lit meals in Bellagio to panoramic vistas in Brunate.

Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky
A magnificent historic building with an exceptional location in the heart of the city, the NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky dates back to 1855. Situated on the main square, enjoy spectacular views of the Royal Palace. The rooms showcase contemporary style and many rooms—particularly those on higher floors—have wonderful views over the square. The hotel’s exclusive dining experience includes a Michelin-starred restaurant in a beautiful 19th-century room. There’s also a café open for lunch, dinner or afternoon tea.
Château de Pray
Nestled in a bucolic five-acre park and a stone’s throw from the royal city of Amboise, Château de Pray has watched over the valley for centuries and holds the secrets of some of the finest chapters in French history. Remodeled during the Renaissance and framed by its two protective towers, it’s a haven of peace. Château de Pray is home to traditional French gardens; a terrace facing the Loire River; heated pool; a gourmet restaurant, which earned a Michelin star; and private lounges each with their own atmosphere. The rooms, (15 of which are in the castle, including one suite, and four in the Renaissance Pavilion), offer the perfect setting for a peaceful night’s sleep.
