The Lago station is nearer the lake, ferries, and the town proper but the other station has better connections to other towns. Not all the trains stop at the Lago station. San Giovanni is the main train station.

In Como there are 2 train stations: Como San Giovanni and Como NORD LAGHI.

They are far 1 km (just 3 minutes by car) one from the other so i think it should be the same.

Good luck, Brezza

Because you are coming from Venice, you should go to Como San Giovanni. Trains for this station leave from Milano Centrale, which is exactly where you arrive from Venice.

To go to the other three Como stations, including Como Nord Lago which is the best located for tourism, you would need to travel across Milan in the Metro to take a train from Milano Cadorna station.

We arrived at San Giovanni - took a taxi to hotel Marco ( near the funicular and 5 min from Como Nord lago station). Cab cost 6 euro. Caught train from Lago nord to Milan at end of stay.

They are at opp ends of the town.
