For everyone who plan to visit Italy and Lake Como not on the list, i think you need to revise all the plan. Just to make sure you wont missed the beauty of Lake Como.
Lake como is a city in Italy, northern Italy, 25 miles (40 km) north of Milan. So, we decided to take 1 day trip to Lake Como when we were at Milan at that time.
The journey takes between 36 minutes and 1 hour. Bought our TRENITALIA Train ticket from the machine at Milan Central Station and don’t worry there are lots of trains heading to Lake Como.
The ticket price is 5 – 15€ for one way and children under 6 are free. Make sure you arrive at the gate 10 mins before departure, because we were but you don’t need to buy a new ticket (as long as the destination remains the same).
We already booked a hotel for a 1 night stay and we decided to choose a nice hotel. So our choice goes to Hilton Lake Como :).
When we arrived at Como Lago station, we already checked the route and planned to walk to the hotel from the train station.
This is the main road of Lake Como and it was so beautiful and so peaceful. PS : the road and the public transport are stroller friendly. So, if you plan to visit Lake Como with kids, then its a YES!
Before heading to the city we managed to check the swimming pool first, and I hope we are on the same page, because for me the view so beautiful, almost burst the tears.
Then, after lunch time we went out and explored the city center. We bought a bus ticket from the parking machine nearby. We don’t have any specific plan but we are looking for Mcd ( LOL) because our toddler refuse to eat at the hotel. So went to the city centre and Como’s Old Town.
The next day, after breakfast and spend time at swimming pool, we manage to walking around the city before heading back to Milan. And I decided, this is the city that i wish to visit again someday.
So, we walked from our hotel and visit Villa Olmo but did not go inside, we just enjoying the breathtaking view from the garden. Villa Olmo was acquired in 1924 by the municipality of Como and today is open to the public only during exhibitions, while the lakeside gardens are freely accessible during the daytime.
So we walk through the the lake, my heart keep beating so fast and suddenly 1 day not enough to stay here. I need 7 days stay at Como. Hope to see you again Como :).
