You don’t have to worry or be confused about how to successfully get to Lake Como from Milan when you’re led by our local trip leader who knows exactly which train, stop, and tickets you need. It’s all included so you can just enjoy the ride through the Italian countryside.

Como Town

Yes, there’s an actual town named Como, and it’s your first stop. Follow your trip leader through the parks and streets to get to know the area and discover the incredible museums and culture that exists in this little town. You’ll have free time to explore more on your own and eat your lunch at one of several recommendations your guide is sure to have.

Lake Como Boat Ride to Torno

The moment you’re probably most excited for is next. It’s almost sacrilegious to come to Lake Como without going on a boat ride, which is why it’s definitely included on this tour. There’s a magical feeling as the boat gets underway, the breeze caresses your face, and the sun shines down on you and the stunning villas that you pass by.

In all, your boat ride will take about an hour, and you’ll be taken to the little village of Torno with its colorful homes. From here, you’ll have a view of Moltrasio across the lake, and you can wander the streets to find the Church of San Giovanni or just enjoy some time at the lakeside.

Enjoy your time exploring the quiet streets of this town compared to the busier noise of Milan. You'll be glad you decided to escape the city for the day! After your time in Torno, return to Como by boat as you cruise through the lake soaking in those last panoramic views. Your trip leader will get you to the train station with your tickets for the return trip back to Milan in time for your aperitivo before dinner.

Why can't I live in Lake Como????? We had a wonderful time on this experience. Our driver was lovely leading us out of Milan. I really enjoyed Bellagio. It was a bit cold that day so I recommend bringing a jacket with you. Thanks!!!
