3It’s one of Europe’s deepest lakes
Lake Como is a mountain lake, formed during the last Ice Age. Because of the way that the lake was formed, it’s one of the deepest mountain lakes in Europe. At its deepest point, Lake Como measures over 425 meters from surface to bottom. Despite its extremely deep inner sections, most of the lake is slightly more than 150 meters from top to bottom. Lake Como’s depth is one reason for its remarkably blue water, which has made it one of Italy’s most picturesque natural destinations. Click the next ARROW to see the next image!
