Summer festivities  (4 Answers)

Hi All. We will be in Lake COmo (staying in Tremezzo) from the 22-29th August. I've been looking online and trying to find information about local festivals, music, parades etc that may be happening in the area but I'm not having much luck? We like classical music, opera, jazz etc, open air cinemas, local parades and markets etc. Can anyone help?!

Thanks

What towns?  (6 Answers)

Hello world travelers,

I just found this fantastically inspiring site by seeing one Auroea/Jelena beautiful photographs and this is my first post. I regret that this is my first trip to Italy in 19yrs and my girl has never been. we are leaving from Los Angeles to Milano May22 and leaving from Rome June 25 and I want Lago di Como to be our first stop for 3 nights. With so many rooms being booked at this time of year I am have difficulty deciding on a b&b or small hotel or near a town that has great views, isn't very busy, has an authentic feel and good food. My budget for a room is flexible up to about $I20 a night. I am thinking I may rent a car since I would like to visit many towns. Any recommendations?

I sincerely appreciate. Claudio Marangone

4 Days on Lake Como  (11 Answers)

I'll be visiting Lake Como in September and staying in Como. I'll have 4 full days to explore the area without a car.
I'll be using the water transport most of the time to get around and want to maximise my time efficiently whilst keeping the cost down where possible, but not at the expense of trying to do too much at a time.
I realise that the Centro Lago is the most scenically attractive part of the lake and I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether I should visit the likes of Bellagio, Varenna and Menaggio on 3 separate days or would it be possible to skip across the lake to see all 3 in one day - or a combination of both.
A big thank you to anyone who has any suggestions on the best way to spend the 4 days.

Day ferry pass  (12 Answers)

So I am trying to plan a day trip from Bergamo to Lake Como. We can either take the train to Como San Giovani or to Lecco. Then buy a day ferry pass so we can hit Bellagio and Varenna and Como. Can anyone tell me what the price for a day ferry pass is along with how much the supplemental for the high speed? I have been going crazy trying to find a site. Also, any alternatives than the train, e.g. buses? TIA, Karl

Buying property on Lake Como as a foreigner  (3 Answers)

Good evening

I am in the very preliminary stages of assessing feasibility. This would be a flat - not a villa (I wish).

Does anyone have some good resources (books, websites) to recommend in doing research? Tax aspects, foreign owner pitfalls, letting the property afterwards, and so on?

We usually stay mid lake (Lenno or Varenna) and I think I'm partial to the western side but would probably expand the search to other areas - but no farther north than mid-lake.

I have experience in owning a second home but the one I have is not a rental - so the rental aspect would be completely new to me.

Many thanks.

Best town to stay in Lake Como when driving from Innusbruck  (4 Answers)

Hi, I'm really hoping someone could help me out. My husband and I are travelling through a majority of Northern Italy. To save quite a bit, we are booking a lot of hotels and B&B's ourselves. my question is..at one point we will be in Innusbruck, Austria, at which time we will make our way down to Lago di Como (Lake Como). We were thinking of staying in the town of Pallanza. Do you think this is the best town to stay in at Lake Como considering we are coming from Innusbruck?

car ferry from Menaggio to Varenna  (7 Answers)

I'm traveling by car from Malpensa to Varenna in late September. I need to know if there is a car ferry that crosses the lake between the two towns of Menaggio and Varenna. I read the ferry website schedule but it's not entirely clear to me if there is a ferry that takes cars. Also, does one need to buy a ticket in advance for the trip? Finally, is it better to drive to Lecco and on to Varenna and avoid the ferry altogether?

Lago di Como or Florence  (6 Answers)

We are leaving very shortly for a week in Sondrio. We will have 5 additional days to spend in Northern Italy. We can't decide whether to go to Lago di Como or to Florence. We thought of staying in Varenna and hiking and exploring the lake towns on the ferries. We love to walk/hike and it looks like a breathtaking spot to explore. I wonder if the weather is good for hiking right now and if the Lake is a bit too quiet in October with many things closed.
As for Florence, so many people have told us how much they love Florence that we just can't decide where to go. We love art. One friend said that Florence is like an Advent Calendar with something wonderful behind every door or around every corner and that it is a walking city. I fear we will regret not seeing Florence. I wonder also if Florence is very busy at this time of year.
I posted a similar inquiry yesterday under Florence, but I can't find it now.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! I don't think I can go wrong with either choice, but since it is October, maybe one place will have a clear advantage....

Varenna trattoria  (1 Answer)

Late October ferries  (2 Answers)

I am traveling in late October (one night in Como, 5 nights in Varenna, last night in Como). The ferry schedule posted goes through Oct 5th so I'm assuming the ferries are less frequent in the off-season. Will it still be easy for me to explore all around the lake and not get stranded because of fewer ferries?

Bus and Fery Service for Nesso  (2 Answers)

Hi,

I have found a great place for me and my friends in the town of Nesso. My only concern is getting to and from other towns in Lake Como. As I understand it, there are only two scheduled ferry stops for Nesso. Is that right? What about buses? Is there a regular bus that runs to and from Bellagio or Como that I can use in case there is no ferry service for a particular time of day? If there is a bus service, can someone let me know how to get the schedule? We will be in the Lake Como area in early October.

Thanks in advance for the replies!
