Among the must-see destinations in Northern Italy are Milan, Venice and Lake Como. Here is a sampling of recent developments that may interest clients planning to visit the Lombardy and Veneto regions. The new Vista Palazzo Lago di Como has opened just in time to welcome summer guests. The fourth hotel from the Italian family-owned-and-operated Lario Hotels, it was born of a total renovation of a 19th-century lakeside Venetian-style palazzo in the city of Como itself. Vista Palazzo has 18 rooms and suites, each with large, Italian marble bathrooms with soaking tubs and separate showers.

As the name implies, the hotel has views of the lake throughout — the best of which is from the guests-only rooftop restaurant, bar and library. At the 22-seat Sottovoce restaurant, the chef serves traditional local cuisine. Guests get a personal concierge who can book the private dinners, as well as advise on top cultural and social events, organize private visits to museums, arrange a seaplane excursion or tour of the lake from a Riva boat, book a table at Como’s most requested restaurants and more.
