History

The hotel is bound to "The Fine Arts". The lower facade was designed by the famous rationalist Architect Terragni.

The unique location, both at the waterfront and in the heart of town, and the Cassani family's 100 years management has made the Metropole Suisse a regular stop for generations of tourists and business men.

Since right after the second world war, its rooms gave hospitality to some of the most well-known personalities: King Faruk, Princess Furstemberg, the Royal Family of Denmark... and many of the most famous italian tv and movie stars.

To visit the magnificient Villas and Gardnes that make Como Lake accomodation such a hotspot, you only need to walk to the Pier in front of the hotel and board one of the many boats towards Villa Carlotta, Villa Serbelloni, Villa Balbianello and the beautiful mansions of the Versace family and George Clooney.

Even more breathtaking it's a hydroplane's flight from the local AeroClub, unique in Europe.

And if you ask for more: golfing holiday, parachuting, trekking, windsurfing, gambling at the Casino of Campione.... it's all here!
