What you'll do

Starting from Milano N. Bovisa train station (or also from other Milan train stations, such as Milano N. Cadorna / Milano Porta Garibaldi / Milano Centrale -upon request and availability) we will reach Como by train (after about 50 minutes) and we will have a nice chat before our arriving. There, we will visit different churches: the first one is the Basilica di Sant'Abbondio, a Romanesque-style 11th-century Roman Catholic basilica, with a medieval monastery annexed to the church. Then, we will admire other churches (such as the Basilica di San Fedele, and the Duomo of Como), strolling in the city center and breathing a truly Italian atmosphere. We will also have have a nice walking by the lake with a breathtaking view. At the end of the experience, we will enjoy a typical Italian "aperitivo" toasting with an authentic Spritz (or another local cocktail) in a nice bar or Bistrot. Then, we will take the train back to Milan -If you prefer, you can have dinner in Como, I will give you tips for a very tasty dinner-. Please note: the itinerary can be modified or tailor-made upon request.

Lisa

I love to discover the world from a different point of view and I like off the beaten track tours. This is the reason why I decided to share my way of exploring Como with all the people that will enjoy this unique experience. I know Como very well because I studied here at University, and for three years, this was my second city. I have worked as a tour leader for a tour operator that promotes a responsible tourism offer, so I know interesting itineraries. I have also a master's degree in Tourism and Local Development and I think that local people are the best "channel" you have to discover a city.

Where you'll be

We will explore the historic city center and we will visit the principal churches (such as Chiesa di San Fedele, Basilica di Sant'Abbondio and Cattedrale di Como). Then, we will stroll by the lake until the beautiful park of Villa Olmo. We will toast with a typical Spritz before taking the train. Please note: Before and after Christmas Como will be illuminated by the Lake Como Light Festival, a special event that you can't miss!
