this hotel is fully booked on my arrival date. Should I look at hotels/B&B nearby on google map ? Could you think about alternative accommodation ?
This one is available for my date. How about " Hotel Montecodeno", per map, its in the same area as Hotel Olivedo ?
Ps, please instruct where to catch transportation early in am to utilize the full day 1 plus the night to explore lake comoEdited: 03 May 2018, 16:13
I don't understand your post !
Milan to Como (town) is roughly 40 minutes, whereas Milan to Varenna is roughly 1 hour 5 minutes. Varenna is in the area called 'mid lake', and is prettier than Como.
You can, of course, just do a day trip to lake Como, if that's what you meant, but I would recommend staying over (whether in Varenna, Bellagio, your choice)
" Hotel Montecodeno "
I have already indicated that this hotel is 5 minutes from the waterfront, but almost all hotels are 10-15 minutes from the station. Grab a taxi (we walked)
" please instruct where to catch transportation "
Again, I do not understand your question.
First train from Milan to Varenna is about 6:20am
First train back from Varenna to Milan is about 5:40am
Thanks for being patience. Yes, I reread your initial response.
I only planned one night at como, as I realize it’s too rush, if I stay 2N, what I can include for 2N stay ?
I probably only have 1N in como (plus I checked the availability of accommodation), what would be the highlight or what to do, where to go for only 1N ?
The best way to see Lake Como is from one of the boats run by the navigation authority. If you are really pressed for time then just take a loop on the Midland shuttle. This boat does a loop of five towns on a 60 minute cycle. There would be other possibilities with more time involved.
Yes also good to visit one of the garden of garden/villa combinations.
