Has one of the oldest buildings in Como, built during medieval times, this is a must do visit. It´s a place filled with details and history and it's amazing it still exists. The book store is quite nice and has 3 floors full of books. Don´t miss it.

Excellent library in a small plaza in the historical center of Como. Offers a good variety of books and periodicals. Go up the stairs to visit the upper floors and observe the old walls from the original building.

apart from being a very fine bookstore, you should visit it because it's located on three floors of one of the oldest buildings in the historic centre of Como, right in front of basilica di San Fedele...

Most people folk famous book stores like Shakespeare & Co in Paris but an old Italian book store has some charm of its own. (not denying that Shakespeare.. is a lovely store as well). The staff is very friendly. Most books are Italian though :s
