The City of Silk
Como is the home of silk. Ties, scarves, suits, soft home furnishings are spun and printed here using traditional craftsmanship.
At the Educational Silk Museum (Museo didattico della Seta), or in the Ratti Foundation Rooms (Sale della Fondazione Ratti) you can retrace the steps of this ancient tradition.
For high quality shopping you can find numerous boutiques in the centre of Como close to the Hotel Barchetta.
Our staff are available to advise you on where to go for the best deals.
