TOWN LOCATION

Situated at the southern tip of the south-west arm of Lake Como, is located 40 kilometres (25 mi) north of Milan; the city proper borders Switzerland and the comunes of Blevio, Brunate, Capiago Intimiano, Casnate con Bernate, Cavallasca, Cernobbio, Grandate, Lipomo, Maslianico, Montano Lucino, San Fermo della Battaglia, Senna Comasco, Tavernerio, Torno and the Swiss towns of Chiasso and Vacallo. Nearby major cities are Varese, Lecco and Lugano.

Airports

Nearby airports providing scheduled flights are Milano Malpensa, Milano Linate, Lugano Agno (in Switzerland) and Orio al Serio Airport near Bergamo. Milano Malpensa can be reached in about one hour by car; about two hours by train to Stazione Centrale (Milano Central) and then direct shuttle coach[14] or about an hour and a half by train (interchange in Saronno);[15] Milano Linate can be reached by car in about an hour, or by train to Stazione Centrale and then local tram.

Bergamo's Orio al Serio Airport can be reached in about an hour and a quarter by car; in two hours by train to Milano Central and then half-hourly shuttle coach. Lugano Agno can be reached by car in less than an hour or by train in an hour and a half (changing once and walking) but it only offers direct flights to Switzerland and Italy[16] and generally higher-priced business class or private charter.

Trains from Como to Zurich Airport take three to five hours.[17]

Como also has an 'international' water aerodrome ('Idroscalo', ICAO code LILY)[18] and seaplane base, which hosts its own aeroplane club with a fleet of sea planes, used for flight training and local tour flights.[19] A hangar is available for aircraft maintenance and servicing.

                                                                        Alan S.St. Louis, MO

                                                                        Perfect location in Como, less than a 5 minute walk to lake. Andrea and Cecilia had the apartment stocked with food staples like eggs and milk and coffee plus snacks!! They were so friendly to accomodate us during our stay. Cecilia picked us up from train station, which is less than a 10 minute walk to apartment, but it was so nice to have someone meet us since we were new to the area. Apartment was very clean and comfortable!! I would definately stay again!

                                                                        Great location with fully stocked apartment

                                                                        Ivana K.

                                                                        We had a great time in Como and this apartment was a big part of it. It's in a central location but tucked away a bit so it was quiet. We had everything we needed and it was nice to have the basics stocked so we didn't have to buy everything for a short stay -- although it was fun to go to the supermarket just a short walk away. The apartment is charming with high ceilings and a renovated bath. It was very nice of Franco to give us a lift to the train station since it was raining the day we left - it's a short walk but we would've been soaked even with an umbrella. Highly recommended!

                                                                        Excellent property

                                                                        Nicola R.

                                                                        Very comfortable apartment, close to restaurants and shops and centrally located for trains, ferries

                                                                        Charles C.

                                                                        Very comfortable apartment with all amenities. Located close to restaurants and shops and transport. Few minutes walk to train station, water ferry and taxis.

                                                                        Great apartment in historic Como centre -- close to everything!

                                                                        Jan B.

                                                                        The apartment was lovely, and Andrea's mother, who lives upstairs, was very helpful, as was Fleur, who checked us in. We had a private parking space in a garage around the corner, and we were very close to the lake and ferry station -- and minutes away from grocery store, a wide variety of restaurants, and many historic attractions. This well-appointed apartment, with a terrace on the 2nd floor level (also a lift for all luggage) is wonderful for visiting Como and taking the ferry to visit many other lakeshore towns on Lake Como. The only downside is no air conditioning -- while there were several fans we had 90 - 95 degree F weather all week, and didn't get much cooler in the nights. This rental would be perfect in non-summer months!!

                                                                        Outstanding!

                                                                        Kathi M.Wind Point, Wisconsin, USA

                                                                        Beautiful apartment, tastefully decorated, spacious, well-located, full-equipped, quiet, clean, comfortable. The best part of renting this apartment is the exceptional service provided by the hosts. Despite travel delays, we were picked up at the train station and driven to the apartment. Instead of arriving late morning, it was nearly 9pm. No complaints from the hosts, we were greeted with a home-made savory tart and a bottle of their private stock of red wine. In the fridge were eggs, bacon, juice and other items for breakfast the next morning. In over 25 years of renting vacation apartments in Europe, this ranks as THE BEST SERVICE EVER!!

Its proximity to Milan, Switzerland and major transportations makes it an ideal choice for the travelling family or business professional looking for a charming and upscale space. Situated at the southern tip of the south-west arm of Lake Como, is located 40 kilometres (25 mi) north of Milan; the city proper borders Switzerland and the comunes of Blevio, Brunate, Capiago Intimiano, Casnate con Bernate, Cavallasca, Cernobbio, Grandate, Lipomo, Maslianico, Montano Lucino, San Fermo della Battaglia, Senna Comasco, Tavernerio, Torno and the Swiss towns of Chiasso and Vacallo.

Como San Giovanni is also a stop on the main North-South line between Milan Centrale and Zurich and Basel. Intercity and Eurostar trains stop at this station, which makes Como very accessible from the European express train network. Tickets can be purchased online from Rail Europe. The Como to Brunate funicular connects the center of Como with Brunate, a small village (1,800 inhabitants) on a mountain at 715 m (2,346 ft) above sea level. Como is a city and comune in Lombardy, Italy. It is the administrative capital of the Province of Como. Its proximity to Lake Como and to the Alps has made Como a popular tourist destination and the city contains numerous works of art, churches, gardens, museums, theatres, parks and palaces: the Duomo (seat of Diocese of Como), the Basilica of Sant'Abbondio, the Villa Olmo, the public gardens with the Tempio Voltiano, the Teatro Sociale, the Broletto (the city’s medieval town hall) and the 20th century Casa del Fascio.
