1. Re: Milan or lake como ?

I assume you will travel with public transports. Arriving from London, you have lots of low cost flights arriving in Malpensa or Bergamo Orio al Serio. Both airports are connected with Milano (stop: Central railways station) by busses, two companies do the service, and travelling time is not that different. I would suggest you go look for the cheapest flight, there isn't a big difference between airports.

You can consider spending a day on the Lake if you arrive on the 2nd, if you arrive on the 3rd... better staying in Milano. But consider also the weather in that period. If it's really bad, you'd better stay in MIlano, you won't enjoy the Lake with a heavy rain, for example. If you want to go to the Lake in a day, you can consider this: go by train to Varenna (about 1 hour) have a look at the town and catch the ferryboat to Bellagio e Menaggio. It's lovely!

For infos and timetable:
