Torno, one of the most picturesque villages perched on this lake shore , is the starting point for the itinerary to Piazzaga. Following the red arrows to the “strada regia” and the signs to Molina, Piazzaga/Massi avelli you will take the path along a mule track, along which you can find views on the lake, a Roman stone arch and a rich wildlife. You will then get to a stone bridge on a stream and by keeping your left you will head towards the “massi avelli”, erratic boulders where tombs have been graved. You then go ahead to Piazzaga, take a nice break and eat or drink some typical and traditional food in
'''the Crotto '''[http://www.crottopiazzaga.com/it/index.htm] and enjoy the impressive view on the whole lake.Then slowly go to Montepiatto and visit the "Pietra Pendula " and go back to Torno.</do>.

Petrol is considerably cheaper in nearby Switzerland, while Diesel is about the same price, (in 2004) so remember to top-up the car in the cheapest place.
* You will enjoy the best food at Gatto Nero [http://www.il-gatto-nero.it] in Cernobio and the "Locanda" [http://www.comacina.it/en/island.php] on the Comacina island.
* Eat where the Italians eat, so avoid the overpriced and often poor-quality tourist traps! Full meals for 10 Euros or less per person is normal (starter, main course, desert, wine, coffee all included). Restaurants in the historic centre tend to be more expensive approaching 20 Euros. Walk behind Hotel ****** and find a popular pizza-restaurant. Restaurants facing the lake are more expensive. Water from the tap is clean and free, so no need to pay for expensive bottled water.
Como it's a stunning city and a wonderful place to relocate.If you are retired. Nevertheless the gorgeous landscape and the amazing views of the town worth defenetely a visit. Como has a very small nightlife based on open air bars during summer and some electro-music parties.
During summer season most of the people just go sunbaking on the lake shore and they meet in town during Aperitivo which means buffet food for every drink purchased in a bar: depending on the owner it could go from chips to pasta, pizza, fruit salad and skewers.
