The itineraries suggested in theWhat to do in section, depending on the length of your stay at La Corte di Zizi and the age of your children, can give you different ideas for organizing your mostly outdoor vacation days.

In addition to this, under the plane trees in Piazza Risorgimento in Cernobbio we point out a well-equipped play area where the little ones can run wild, perhaps while their parents enjoy an aperitif or a quick lunch at Onda, one of our recommended restaurants.

If, on the other hand, you are in Como, you can stop at the “lakeside gardens,” located near the Tempio Voltiano and the Monumento ai Caduti, a stone’s throw from the breakwater promenade.

What to do with little ones in Cernobbio and Como if it rains

If the weather does not allow you to enjoy the beaches of Lake Como or the
outdoor trips
, we suggest some proposals around Como or reachable by car:

  • Toy Horse Museum (Grandate): first and to date only museum in the world dedicated to the toy horse, easily accessible; a fully equipped nursery, with cribs and changing tables for the care of small children, is available at the nearby Chicco Village.
  • Rocca di Angera with its museums (toward Lake Maggiore, 1 hour from Como): the historic building houses the Museum of Dolls and Toys, the largest in Europe, framing it is the sought-after Medieval Garden and a breathtaking view from the fortress ramparts.
  • Pasquè Farm (Bernate – Varese): the farm’s activities are divided between livestock production, agritourism and education. Even in bad weather, it is a pleasant place because the major areas of interest are covered by canopies and the pedestrian area is paved with bricks in order to prevent mud from forming.
  • Kids Park (Como, Via Pasquale Paoli): large indoor play area equipped, with mini-motorcycle and car track, for safe fun.
