The antique centre of the town, just a 10 minutes boat ride or a half-hour’s panoramic walk from Sheraton Lake Como Hotel is a must-see. The 112th-centurywalls contain the Romanesque Cathedral, the Broletto (medieval town hall), the Basilicas of St. Abbondio and St. Carpoforo, and the majestic neoclassical Villa Olmo, hosting major art exhibitions during the summer month.
The shoreline of Cernobbio, a graceful town at 5 minutes walking distance from Sheraton Lake Como Hotel, comprises a compact quarter of old houses just off the lakeside piazza and is laced with a series of fine villas fronting the water.
