One of the (more or less) hidden gems of Europe is Lake Como. Located in the north of Italy, about 40 minutes away from Milan, the lake is becoming more and more popular or it’s beauty, nature and it’s luxury hotels.

I first went to Como in 2016 and when I planned my trip to Milan this year I definitely wanted to go back to Como.

You can take the train from Milano Centrale to either Lecco or Varenna, it takes you about 40 minutes to get there. We decided to go to Lecco and then take the ferry to Bellagio and then to Varenna from where we took the train back to Milan. In Lecco we had some icecream at Groms (one of their stores has just opened in Piccadilly) and then we had a coffee at the ferry house. The ferry to Bellagio takes about an hour but it is definitely worth it. Bellagio has many colorful houses and it is really pretty. We went to a restaurant, had some pasta and then went to a walk across the town. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t too good that day. It started to rain and we decided to take the ferry back to Varenna.

Even though we just went for a few hours it was definitely worth it and I will come back again next year.
