Hi to everyone

I have booked a flight to Milan with a view to spending a couple of days at Lake Como at the end of September.

However, I wondered;

Firstly - will the holiday season still be going at this time, ie, will all the resort be open, shops, restaurants etc and will the transport connections still be regular at this time?

Secondly - what will the weather be like at this time?

In general then, is the end of September a good time to visit Lake Como or would I be better advised to stick with a city like Milan?

Thanks, Beth

End of September will be fine. The school holidays are over and there will be lesse people around, but the tourist season is still going on. Everything will work regularly until October at least.

Weather: tricky question. In the past few years the weather has been warm until the beginning of October, but there also were years when summer was over on September 1st and it started to rain. Have faith and it will be fine.

Milan is ok for a 1 day visit, so if you want to add that in your schedule. However, I would never spend my holiday in Milan. Rather go down towards Ligura and spend some time in the Cinque Terre.

I agree with everything the first poster said. I'd also like to mention that you would be better off with a car while your there. The boats and ferries can get quite expensive and the buses do not run late and you could end up paying alot of money for a taxi. Happy Travels

As far as the cities in Lake Como, I am a big fan of Varenna - you can get there with the train that goes to Tirano from Milano Centrale. Once in Varenna you can take a boat and visit the other cities. You probably already have this link, but here it is just in case:

We also liked Bellagio, but Varenna was to me prettier and not as packed with tourists as Bellagio - maybe in September it would be better.

Como is at the tail end (or beginning depending on how you look at it). For us, we went to Como at the end as we were returning to Milan from there. There's another train leaving Como into Milan Cadorna station - not as picturesque as the first ride but it's a straight shot into Milan. So it's nice to be based in Varenna - then take the boats to a couple of other selected cities, and visit Como at the end, but do plan the entire day in Como.

I don't know if there are lockers in the station because we came as a day trip from Milan which was too little time.

Here's the Varenna official site

There are also many good tips for Varenna in these VT pages.


by bethleics

Thanks for some great replies and ideas on what to see and for taking the time and trouble to reply.

I'm glad to hear that the season will still be going - I've been to a few resorts here in the UK which even just a couple of days into Septemeber were almost completely closed - apparently many do close straight after the Bank Holiday in August.

Just another quick question, is Lake Como as developed and tourist as Lake Garda?




by Ina08

It is quite developed though not like Lake Garda and the tourist profile is a little different. At the end of September you won't find the huge crowds with screaming kids and the lake is very enjoyable.


by painterdave

They are all developed. But still beautiful.
My advice is get out of Milan... and to the lake region.

Travel Tips for Milan


by antistar

All around Milan, even away from the popular tourist areas near the Duomo, the architecture in Milan was very impressive. Apart from the modern buildings, which are mostly a blight on the city, much of everything else is fantastic. Even ordinary, nameless buildings can be impressive, like the archway in the picture here, taken on Corso Venezia, opposite the Natural History Museum.

you dont have to dress as a model...

by feag

If you are planning to walk around and sightsee, then a comfy pair of shoes, even trainers are fine, dont think just because you are going to Milan that you need to dress like a supermodel! even casual bars/restraurants are fine to dress casual in. The only time you may want to dress it up a bit is if you go to a trendy bar or club.. as then things are a little different.. ask the locals on the forum.. There are shops that sell anything you need, so no worries there... dont forget to take your camera when going up to the Duomo Cathedral - the views and the spires are amazing..

Shopping Mecca

by monika79 about Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele II

Named after the Savoy King Vittorio Emmanuele II, this 19th century shopping center houses shops from the hottest designers. Ranging from Versace to Prada and everyone in between. The place to shop for anything and everything including women's and men's fashions, shoes, books and art. Plus more!! Since the Galleria is home to high end designers, you can expect to see many expensive price tags.

I was a little bit undecided...

by mauro_pd

I was a little bit undecided weather to put this tapas bar under the restaurant list or here in the night spots list ... actually you can do both at Ajo Blanco, a nice and crowded bar a little bit an 'alone in the dark' spot away from the usual places in Milan.
Sangria !!!!!!!!! Jamon (ham) and queso (cheese) !!!!! Casual ... ansolutely as you are ...

Rossignoli bicycle rentals

by Nemorino

Another place to rent bicycles is the Rossignoli bicycle shop in the reduced traffic zone of Corso Garibaldi.

I didn't rent there myself, but I did stop by and ask some questions. They have mainly city bikes with no gears, because Milan is completely flat.

A rental bike costs six Euros for half a day, ten Euros for a full day, 18 Euros for a weekend or 35 Euros for a full week. For an extra two Euros you can also get a child's seat. You have to leave a deposit of 100 Euros (as at A.W.S.) and show identification.

They are closed Monday mornings, by the way, until 14:30.

Address: Corso Garibaldi 65 / 71 - 20121 Milano.

Second photo: This sign in the Rossignoli bicycle shop window says:

does not consume, does not pollute,
does not obstruct, does not make noise,
does not create congestion.

improves traffic, improves the environment.
improves the air, improves the city.

Help Milan. Go by bicycle.
