Cernobbio

A splendid May afternoon. Cernobbio is one of the lake’s most popular locations owing to various events that take place at Villa Erba and Villa d'Este. Easy to reach thanks to its proximity with the highway towards Milan and the Swiss border.

A beautifully snowy day.

Rovenna and Cernobbio: every year the festival Chestnuts, witches and surrounding is held in October,
it is a kind of Halloween which reminds the people’s folk tales of the area.

Luna, the foal of Bisbino is missing. In the Mount Bisbino area lives a herd of wild horses
(the famous “horses of Mount Bisbino”). Luna is believed to have been taken away by poachers.
