When to travel
The best times to visit Casta Diva are in the spring and autumn, when the climate is ideal, the clear blue skies create the ideal visibility and the flora of Lake Como is at its best.
In the summer months, the climate of Lake Como can be very hot and humid, and often these months the high pressure of southern air clashing with the colder mountain air can create thunderstorms. Also, the roads around the Lake can be overrun with Italian and German tourists making it hard going for the tourist looking for a relaxing vacation.
