Day Trip to Lake Como from Milan

Day Trip to Lake Como from Milan, Como, Italy (B)

Como has to be without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in Italy. The large tranquil lake is surrounded by the Alps and offers dramatic scenic views from the lake itself and from above. If you happen to be nearby in Milan, doing a day trip out there should be a must-do. If you can, stay at least one night.

There are many train stations in Milan that get you to Lake Como, some have connections and some do not. For the shortest easiest way, you can take the train from Cadorna to Como Nord Lago. You can also take a direct train from Milan Centrale to Como San Giovanni. Lago is a bit closer to the funicular and the Cathedral. San Giovanni is closer to the villas lining the lake.

My recommendation to save you the most time is to get into the Como Lago station, then start moving toward the San Giovanni station and leave from there. The trains run pretty frequently throughout the day, so you don’t have to book in advance. This way, you can take your time and leave when you’re ready. Arriving from one station and leaving from the other saves you the trouble and time of doubling back to catch your train to Milan. ......
