Because of the deep lake and its northern Italy location, the best time of the year to visit the Lake Como area is from late April through the summer months, when the lake provides a cooling influence, especially after the sun goes down--although Lake Como can be crowded with folks from Milan escaping the heat of the city at these times. September and October are the best times to go in fall, although the major ferries around the lake run even later in the year.

Note that the evening temperatures cool dramatically, so even if it's warm, it's unlikely to be hot at night. This is a big reason people come to Lake Como in Summer.

Como gets quite a bit of summer rain, so the traveler should be prepared for summer showers.

Como Water Temperatures: The water in Lake Como exceeds 20 degrees Centigrade (68 degrees Fahrenheit) in July, August and September, making those months the prime time for swimming.

Como and Lake Como Travel

Como has two train stations: the main station Como S. Giovanni, and a smaller one that connects with lake ferries, Como Nord Lago. See a rail map of Italy.

Como is 57.6 kilometers from Malpensa Milan Airport.

There are many relatively inexpensive places to stay in the town of Como like the Hotel Plinius situated near the lake and offering free wi-fi throughout the hotel. The more upscale four star Avenue Hotel is in a quiet piazza in the center of town.

In Bellagio, the Apartments Bellagio gets rave reviews for its views and restaurant. Less expensive is the B&B Sibi in the Little town of Liema (you'll need a car).
