If you are planning your trip to Lake Como, I advise you to choose the place to stay depending on the duration of your visit, your needs and the budget you have available.

Here are some options:

VISITS LASTING 3+ DAYS | If you have the chance to spend more than a couple of days on Lake Como, I would suggest you to find accommodation in one of the towns in the central part of the lakeBellagioMenaggioTremezzina or Varenna. In this way you can easily reach the nearest villages by ferry and get the best out of your holidays!

DAY TRIPS FROM MILAN | If you have little time, I’d suggest you to take a train from Milan and visit Como, Lecco or Varenna.

TOWNS MOST EASY TO WALK | If you want to avoid cobblestone streets or steep alleys, play it safe and head for the main towns (Como and Lecco).

      Good morning Marie! Lake Como has a lot to offer depending on what you like: historic villas to visit, boat tours, hiking, water sports, etc. Unfortunately, I do not currently offer tailor-made consultations (although it is a service I am working on), but I invite you to explore this website and possibly contact me via email for more specific information.
