Torno is conveniently situated just seven kilometers from Como, along the road that connects Como to Bellagio.
It is easily reachable by land or by water, with the public ferry service.
The Italian Touring Club has recognized the village with an Orange Flag. Torno is one of only 224 villages in all of Italy endorsed by the World Tourism Organization for touristic and environmental quality and excellence of services offered and the quality of the hospitality.
Those who visit Torno cannot help but be struck by the beauty of its inhabited places.
Torno reaches from the promontory of Monte Piatto where can be found a small mountain village 600 meters above sea level ( reachable by two paths about 3 km long ) and stretches to La Riva, the lively pedestrian area surrounding the characteristic harbor.
The dense beech and chestnut forests in this region are interrupted by picturesque medieval hamlets where the slopes are stacked with stone houses clustered together along embracing narrow streets.
If you love history and the arts, you should not miss the thirteenth century Roman church dedicated to John the Baptist.
The Church of Santa Tecla stands beside the ancient center of the village that stretches toward the lake.
If you are more inclined to quiet contemplation, enjoy the view of the lake from the comfort of a harbor café.
From the pier in the harbor you can take the passenger ships, a comfortable alternative to car travel, to and from Como, Bellagio and other nearby villages.
