The city centre, or centro storico, is home to many historical and cultural landmarks, including the Duomo di Como, a Gothic cathedral dating back to the 14th century, and the Broletto, a medieval town hall. The lake promenade is a popular spot for walking, jogging or cycling and also offers beautiful views of the lake and the surrounding mountains.
Twenty minutes on foot are enough to get to Como San Giovanni. From this station, there are regular trains departing to Milano Centrale and Switzerland (Lugano, Bellinzona, Locarno).

Tickets can be obtained from the driver (cash only) or in designated places (the main bus station in Piazza Matteotti, bars, and tobacco stores). Taxis are also available. However, the historical centre, the main sightseeing objects and the lake are a walking distance away from the property.
From the pier in central Como, a local ferry service will take you to Cernobbio, Torno, Bellagio, Varenna, Colico, and other lakeside towns.
