Celebrate Eid al-Fitr in Lake Como, Italy with the Festival of San Giovanni at Grand Hotel Tremezzo
Visitors to Italy’s Lake Como this June will benefit from a double dose of celebrations, as the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr and the Festival of San Giovanni coincide over the final weekend of the month. Offering a special festival package and enviably located on the shores of the lake with views of Bellagio, Grand Hotel Tremezzo is the ideal place to enjoy the holiday.
Lake Como’s oldest celebration, the Festival of San Giovanni honors the rich heritage of Como through food, art and festivities.

Guests of Grand Hotel Tremezzo will be whisked by boat to the ideal location to watch the fireworks, Isola Comacina.
