The closest airport is Milano Malpensa – from there you can get a train at the airport lower level to Como Lago. There is a train every 20~30 minutes, takes about 1:30 hour to reach Como and costs about 10 Euro per person.
Be sure to change train when you reach Saronno station!
If you land at Milano Linate they recently opened a new underground line that connects the airport to the train stations. Get on the M4 (blue) underground line and, when you reach San Babila, get on the M1 line (red) toward Bisceglie or Rho Fiera. When you reach Cadorna station, leave the underground and get a train to Como Lago. It takes about 1:30 hour to reach Como and costs about 8~10 Euro per person.
If you land at Bergamo Orio al Serio the connection is slower and more expensive. You need to take a bus to Milano Centrale station and then a train to Como San Giovanni. Usually it takes not less than 2:30~3 hours to reach Como, cost is about 15~20 Euro per person.
If you arrive by train, in Como there are two separate train lines, even if the town is very small.
So you might arrive at: Como San Giovanni or Como Lago pending on where you travel from.
Como San Giovanni is about 20~30 minutes while Como Lago is about 8 minutes walking to the Artist Place.
Anyways, to make your life easier, we provide a free service by picking you up with our car at the station you arrive and taking you to the apartment.
The apartment is located in Como downtown, outside the limited traffic area (so no problems!) – Check the map for the address and to set your map.
There are some free and paid spots available on the street.
If you do not want to loose time to find a parking every time you get back at the Artist’s Place we can rent you for a small extra fee a box where to park your car. Max car dimensions: 4,00 x 1,75 mt. (height 1,90 mt.)
If you have a car that does not fit our box we have a friend that also rents box (no car size limits) about 7~10 minutes walking from the apartment – he has several but limited spots so, it is better to book in advance. Just let us know and we will put you in direct contact.
