Arriving by train? Here’s where to explore from hotels near the station

If you arrive by train to the Como San Giovanni railway station, you’ll discover plenty to enjoy in this northern Italian city, located at the southern part of Lake Como. Considered a border station because of its proximity to Switzerland, the Como San Giovanni station offers fast national train service to many Italian and Swiss locations. In fact, Milan’s Stazione Centrale is only a 30-minute ride. And once you've arrived at this illustrious station you may find it's an ideal place to stay: hotels near Como San Giovanni station are some of the best in town, and from here you can walk comfortably to the centre or to the waterfront. Once settled in your hotel near San Giovanni station one of your first trips should be to the funicular railway up to Brunate, from where you can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the lake and surrounding area. The funicular shuttles leave their respective stations every 15 minutes or so in order to pass each other halfway through the ride. Safely back on the ground you can then experience Como’s historic charm by strolling through the old town (or 'centro storico'), where you'll find inviting cafes, relaxing town squares and alluring Italian boutiques. History and art enthusiasts will want to stop by the main cathedral, the Duomo; constructed over several centuries, this impressive church provides fabulous examples of Renaissance and Gothic art and architecture. So, for friendly Italian accommodation in a convenient location there are few better choices than one of the quality hotels near Como San Giovanni station.

About Como

When the surroundings of a destination look as beautiful as they do in Como, the city can seem like an afterthought. But Como is much more than its namesake lake and the Alps that give it its picture postcard backdrop. Home to around 80,000 residents, the city's many international visitors can also enjoy the architecture, art and charming churches of this northern Italy city. The weather can be diverse: summers are hot and sunny, and spring and autumn are sunny and pleasant. Winter can see plenty of snowfall, which makes the area an excellent place to ski. Como hotels tend be smaller compared to large city hotels, making for a more personal and intimate stay. This intimate vibe is repeated in the city itself – this a place to make friends and share a bottle of wine rather than get lost in the hustle and bustle, as in other Italian cities. Como is in tune with its surroundings, which are the biggest draw in the area. Because of this, many of the city's attractions are connected in some way to the lake and surrounding mountains, and outdoor activities are popular, with hiking, climbing and kayaking all frequently enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

What to do in Como

Most Como hotels are conveniently located for the city's major attractions, so whichever Como accommodation you choose, you can be rest assured that you'll be close to where you want to be. Away from nature – in which you could happily spend all your time in Como – the highlights of the area include the Volta Temple, which is a museum dedicated to inventor Alessandro Volta, creator of the electric battery. Also recommended is the Volta Lighthouse, which stands 2,000 feet above the lake and affords some of the best views of the Como region. Just a short ferry ride across the lake is the world-famous Villa del Balbianello, a stunning building that stands on the edge of the lake (the setting for much of Casino Royale). To visit the Duomo di Como (Como Cathedral) is to step back in time and view first-hand the city's fascinating history. Construction began on the cathedral in 1396 but was only finished in 1740. Look closely and you'll see designs from every century in between. While there's plenty to keep you busy in Como and the surrounding area, make sure you carve out enough time to enjoy one of its finest activities: sitting at a lakeside cafe with a glass of wine in hand.
