Map of the Nearest to Lake Como Airports in Italy

Here is a map showing you the location of Lake Como and the best airports for Lake Como in Northern Italy.

Standing about 50 km away from Italy’s second-largest city – Milan – Lake Como is easily Italy’s most famous lake on account of its beautiful natural setting, abundance of historic sights, and popularity among famous people of the worlds of acting, music, and politics.

Part of the Northern Italian region of Lombardy, in Italian the lake is called Lago di Como while the locals often affectionately refer to it as Il Uomo – The Man in English. The lake’s outline does in fact look a bit like a man taking a large step. One of his feet rests on the town of Lecco and the other – on the town of Como.

Lake Como has three thin branches which meet at Punta Spartivento. This beautiful promontory is next door to the tourist magnet town of Bellagio and opens sprawling views over the lake.

The three branches are named after their main lakefront towns. As such, the northern branch of Lake Como is known as Colico, the eastern as Lecco, and the western one as Como.

The mountainous area locked between the Lecco and the Como branches of the lake is called the Triangolo Lariano – the Larian Triangle (from Lake Como’s ancient name – Lario). Punta Spartivento is right at the tip of this natural triangle.

The map below shows Lake Como in relation to the three nearest to it major Italian airports. I made it using Google Maps. So, you can use it just like any other Google map. You can zoom in and out, click to open the map in a separate tab and click on the different pins to see their coordinates.

You can also use this map to calculate distances and directions from any of the featured airports to any point of interest around Lake Como and vice-versa. You can also zoom in and explore the urban plan of the many different towns here. Finally, you can share this map of the nearest airports for Lake Como on social media, too.

Practical Tips about Reaching Lake Como in Italy from the Nearest Airports

Here are a few tried and tested travel tips to make your transfer by either public or private transport from your chosen airport to Lake Como in Italy a breeze:

Navigational tools such as Rome2Rio and Google Maps will help you find the relevant travel times from the airport to Lake Como or vice-versa on the specific days of your arrival and departure.

For the most up-to-date details about shuttle buses and airport transfers, always refer to the official websites of the respective airports. Links are provided above.

To check train times and book train tickets in advance, I use Omio. It shows prices and travel times for all available types of trains in Italy irrespective of the company that runs them. This way I can compare costs and times of departure and arrival.

Aim to arrive during the day as travel options in the evening and at night can be significantly fewer. Otherwise, if you need to reach one of the farthest corners of Lake Como, consider spending the night in Como, Lecco or if need be, Bergamo or Milan and then continue to your destination the morning after. 

If you travel by car from your chosen airport to Lake Como, bear in mind that traffic jams can lead to significant increases in the above travel times. This is especially valid during peak hours and the high season. Consulting your navigational app in advance and during your car journey can make all the difference and help you avoid bottlenecks.

If this is your first time driving in Italy, be prepared for a more single-minded style of driving that can be very assertive.

Toll roads in Northern Italy are very well-maintained and quick to travel on. This helpful website will give you an estimate of how much the tolls are going to cost depending on your points of departure and arrival.

If you plan to get a taxi from your chosen airport to Lake Como, ideally book it in advance. Otherwise, ask the driver before the start of the journey how much approximately it will cost you. There may be a surcharge on weekends and holidays.

Be aware that the historic centre of some of the lakefront towns is a traffic-restricted zone (or ZTL in Italian). Driving into it without authorisation incurs heavy fines. You may want to contact your accommodation at Lake Como in advance and see if they can provide you with a temporary pass.

Where to Stay at Lake Como, Italy?

Panoramic view of the northern end of the lake with the town of Bellano - Lake Como, Italy - rossiwrites.com

There is a huge selection of places to stay at Lake Como in any season.

You can choose from lavish historic villas that nowadays function as exclusive hotels. You can opt for a cosy B&B in the centre of a lakefront town. Or you may prefer a self-catering accommodation to enjoy a home-from-home experience.

If you are arriving by car, then make sure that your accommodation also offers parking spaces or can recommend a nearby car park. Especially, if you are planning to stay outside of the larger lakefront towns like Como and Lecco. Parking spaces in the smaller lake towns may be difficult to come across and are usually taken by the locals.

If you are relying on public transport and your accommodation doesn’t provide transfers, then make sure that you have easy access to the nearest bus stop or ferry port. You don’t want to have to walk for miles luggage in hand or depend on taxis every time you want to go to the town centre.

Here are some suggestions for places to stay at Lake Como. All come highly recommended:

Luxury: Grand Hotel Victoria concept & spa by R Collection HotelsGrand Hotel Villa Serbelloni

Mid-Range: Casa sull’AlberoHotel Lenno,

Budget: Locanda AlbertiValle dei Mulini – Lake Como,

How Long to Spend at Lake Como?

Colourfull villas in the town of Varenna - Lake Como, Italy - rossiwrites.com

Lake Como has a lot to offer no matter your style of travel. You may be after a peaceful and relaxing holiday with stunning lake views, a pampering experience with spa procedures and some pool lounging, an active nature break with lots of hiking or an unforgettable day trip. Or you may just want to be able to say that you’ve been to Lake Como and understand what all the fuss is about. Any reason to visit is valid!

So, how long to spend here depends entirely on you and on the amount of time you have at your disposal.

Let’s say that this will be your first visit to the lake and you just want to test the waters. Then you can easily take a self-organised or guided day trip from Milan to Lake Como and see one or a few of the most popular lakefront towns like Como, Varenna, and Bellagio. You can also book a guided day trip around the lake taking you to some of its best sights (this one comes highly recommended).

Alternatively, you can pencil in a weekend break or an even longer stay at Lake Como. It’s a big place that easily caters to all types of travellers.

What to Pack for a Visit to Lake Como?

Boats in the harbour of the town of Lecco - Lake Como, Italy - rossiwrites.com

Lake Como has its own microclimate with moderate temperatures which vacillate around 26 degrees Celsius in summer and drop to around 4 to 8 degrees Celsius in winter. May and June are the wettest months in terms of rainfall and snow days in winter are very rare. Nights can get chilly in any season.

As such, no matter when you choose to visit, make sure that you pack plenty of layers. A light jacket or a cosy jersey may come in very handy during the high season. I am speaking as someone who got caught in a cold downpour in Varenna in July without a jacket because I had wanted to pack light and had assumed that summer is always warm in Italy. At the same time, don’t forget your sun cream, a hat/sunglasses, and a swimming costume.

In winter, you will want to be able to peel off a layer or two on one of those not-rare days when the sun shines bright at lunchtime and it feels like it’s spring already. At the same time, don’t forget your hat, scarf, and gloves as it feels so nice to be wrapped up warm in the evenings.

Bringing my padded hat with ear flaps (similar to this one) was my best packing decision during my last visit to Lake Como over ten days this past Christmas. It kept me really cosy during festive market explorations and hiking around.

Always pack a pair of good walking shoes for Lake Como. Plus, hiking shoes/boots are a must when you go exploring in nature. With many of the towns and villages around the lake having steep cobbled streets and often flights of steps instead of streets altogether, your ankles need to be well supported at all times.

Unless you are planning to visit just the towns of Como, Lecco, and Cernobbio (the central parts of which are flat), make sure that you bring an appropriate pair of shoes to allow you to safely navigate uneven surfaces and steep slopes.

Which Are the Best Towns to Visit on Lake Como?

Picturesque cobbled street in the town of Bellagio - Lake Como, Italy - rossiwrites.com

There are easily dozens of small towns and villages clustered along the waterline and clinging to the steep slopes above Lake Como. Some of them – like Bellagio – are famous worldwide. Others are much less known yet they have beautiful historic centres, a number of curious sights, and are linked to numerous hiking paths crisscrossing the lake’s lush natural setting.

Here is a short list of four of the most gorgeous towns on Lake Como to explore during your visit. All of them are easy to reach by train or by train/bus/ferry from Milan. This makes them great destinations for day trips and weekend breaks as well as for longer stays on Italy’s most famous lake.

Como – one of the largest towns on Lake Como. Come here for the imposing Duomo, the sights dedicated to Alessandro Volta (the inventor of the first electric battery), and the funicular taking you up a vertiginous slope to the town of Brunate. Regular trains link Como to Milan all throughout the day. Once in Como, you can also take a bus to nearby Cernobbio (another beautiful lakefront town) or a ferry up to Bellagio.

Bellagio – this is easily the most famous town on Lake Como. It stands on the tip of Punta Spartivento – the meeting point of the lake’s three branches. Bellagio is very picturesque and has a number of easy to see in a day sights – from the botanical garden of Villa Melzi to the cobbled streets of its historic centre populated by silk shops and craft workshops. You can reach Bellagio by bus or ferry from Como, by bus from Lecco, and by ferry from Varenna.

Varenna – the most charming town on Lake Como is a delight to explore. It has a cute little harbour, a waterfront promenade with far-reaching lake views, medieval castle, and next door to it stands the magnificent Villa Monastero with its delightful garden. Regular trains connect Varenna to Milan all throughout the day. Ferries link this lakefront town to the towns of Menaggio and Bellagio, too, so that you can see them all in a day.

Bellano – this is Lake Como’s hidden gem of a town. With a beautiful promenade, a cute harbour, and a dramatic gorge cut through over millions of years by a powerful waterfall, Bellano has a lot to offer. Yet, you can easily see it all in a few hours or over a very leisurely day. Even better! Bellano is on the same train line as Varenna, making it possible to visit both towns as part of the same trip.

What Are the Best Things to Do at Lake Como?

The garden of Villa Monastero in Varenna - Lake Como, Italy - rossiwrites.com

There are many things to do and enjoy around Italy’s most famous lake – Lago di Como. Here are some ideas:

Sightseeing – the shores of the lake are studded with historic villas, centuries-old churches, and excellent museums. The most well-known are the Duomo, the Volta Temple, the Civic Art Gallery, and the Silk Museum in Como, Villa Balbaniello near Lenno, Villa Monastero next door to Varenna, Villa Melzi in Bellagio, the Moto Guzzi Motorcycle Museum in Mandello del Lario, and so many others.

Hiking and Nature Exploring – it is so very easy to get close to nature around Lake Como. Hiking paths (some of which follow ancient Roman roads) crisscross the steep slopes and link the small towns and villages here. Powerful waterfalls crash through tall canyons and flow into the lake. Don’t miss Orrido di Nesso and Orrido di Bellano. You don’t even need to break a sweat to get out and about in nature here. A number of funiculars offer the chance to enjoy sprawling lake views from the comfort of a smoothly ascending cabin.

Shopping – Lake Como is a great place to indulge in some shopping no matter if you are after the latest fashions of the best Italian brands or artisan items by local craftsmen. The area is also famous for its locally designed silk accessories. Silk has been produced around the lake for centuries and nowadays you can get beautiful silk bags, scarves, and ties for yourself and your loved ones. Don’t miss the local brand Acqua del Lario which makes perfumes, candles, and home scents inspired by the towns and vistas of Lake Como.
