Como has an extensive bus network that allows users to move around freely within the city. At the same time, the network connects all the other main localities bordering the lake. Tickets can be purchased at specialized sales outlets at a cost of €1.25 (for travel within the city), while a one-day ticket costs €2.90.
The boats offered by Navigazione Lago di Como provide a much more unusual and picturesque way to visit and admire this beautiful lake. If you buy a one-day ticket with unlimited travel, you can get on and off where you want. The most important places are also connected by the faster hydrofoil service.
For tourists who wish to visit the Lake of Como by boat, but in complete freedom, the best solution is definitely a Taxi Boat. Many transport companies provide boats of different kinds and sizes, for tours of varying lengths and along different routes.
For those who do not want to use a car for a few days and have a “green” holiday, bicycles are the best option. The city has roads with wonderful views, alternative routes away from the traffic and cycle/foot paths of various lengths.
Alternatively a new way to rent bicycles and outdoor sports equipment is to use the rental platform between private.
Probably the most pleasant way to explore Como is to visit the city on foot. A walk through the lanes of the historical centre is a pleasure indispensable.
Como is connected to the main towns and villages bordering the lake, but also to cities like Milan, Bergamo and Lugano, by an efficient rail network. To reach Switzerland or Milan, you need to take Trenitalia (Italian State Railway) trains, while the Como Lago line of the Ferrovie Nord Milano connects the city to the towns of lower Como Province all the way to Milan, and the Seveso-Asso line links it to the main towns in Brianza as far as Erba and Canzo.
