Dervio

Comments

Dervio lies on a peninsula that juts out into the waters of the lake, situated at the mouth of  Valvarrone and the river Varrone. Very ancient in origin, it was an important fortified village since Roman times for its strategic position on the road connecting Valtellina to Milan through Valsassina. Dervio is one of the most important tourist locations on the eastern shore of Lake Como and is considered the "Paradiso della vela" - Paradise of the sail - with its  ideal location extending into the lake with the four sailing schools. The mountains surrounding Dervio allow excursions into uncontaminated areas with wonderful views.
