Day Trips from Milan

Hi Everyone,

My first post here. I have arranged a surprise trip to Italy for our wedding anniversary. We will be staying in Milan as a base and would like to visit Como for a day. Can anyone please suggest an easy itinerary? We have three full days, allowing for one to Como and perhaps into Switzerland? Where else is easy and worth a trip? We will be there in early August.

Many thanks,

Hi Ewen!

You'll find some good ideas here:


However I'd spend at least a day in Milan. There's lots to see.


Bye :)

To reach Como there are several trains leaving from the 3 stations of Milan.

You may consider to catch a ferry visiting for example Bellagio and by ferry reach Varenna, a nice village on the other side of the lake, from where you may catch the train back to Milan.

Bergamo is another fantastic day trip, you may also go there after lunch, reach the upper part of the town, have dinner there and return to Milan by train.

Milan itself is full of things to see/do, if you wish to visit Cenacolo remember that reservation is mandatory.
