This apartment is located in Cernobbio, a characteristic lakeside town 7 km from Como city and near the Swiss border. Cernobbio is home to some of the most famous Lake Como villas such as Villa d’Este and Villa Erba.
There are bars and restaurants in the area and a supermarket nearby. A short walk downhill will take you to the beautiful lakefront (and a nice walk uphill will take you back!).
The convenient private parking makes this a desirable accommodation for those who are traveling by car.
Traveling to and from Cernobbio is also quite easy with public transport. There are many ASF Autolinee bus lines connecting Cernobbio to Como city and other lakeside towns. Tickets can be obtained from the driver (cash only) or in designated places in Cernobbio and Como. Please note that the buses don't run very often and services stop at around 10 pm! Taxi rides are available, but not easily attainable in the region.
Another option is to take the ferry from the pier on the lakefront and travel to Como and other nearby locations. Timetables and tickets are available on the Navigazione Laghi website.
From Como, it is easy to travel to Milan and Switzerland (Lugano, Bellinzona, Locarno) by train. There are also public ferries traveling to other lakeside towns from the pier in Como center.
The nearest airports are Milano Malpensa, Milano Linate, and Orio Al Serio in Bergamo. It is possible to arrange a direct shuttle to and from the airport at an additional cost.
For more questions regarding transportation, please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to help and ensure that you reach your preferred destination!
>If you feel like walking, Como city center is actually a walking distance away. The walk takes less than an hour. Take the big road till Villa Olmo, and then there is a lakeside pedestrian path.
>To travel and walk around Lake Como, especially in the little towns, comfortable shoes are a must.
>There are many public drinking-water fountains in the little towns, and the water is safe to drink unless stated otherwise. Tap water is also drinkable. You can carry your own refillable bottle!
>From Cernobbio, there are many nearby hiking options in the woods (even to Monte Bisbino!).
>If you are looking for an easy hike in the area and want to enjoy mountain views anyway, Lake Como Greenway is an easy-to-follow trail that doesn't require too much walking uphill. The Greenway goes through the little towns from Colonno to Griante. From Cernobbio, you can get to the starting point in Colonno by bus. Another pleasant and laid-back hiking path in the area is Via Verde which connects Moltrasio to Laglio.
>In Italy, many shops (especially the little ones) and services are closed in the middle of the day, so be careful to plan your shopping accordingly.
>Lake Como is one of the deepest lakes in Europe and the deepest in Italy. Swimming and diving are prohibited in many areas and can be dangerous. For those who wish to dwell in the water, however, there are some options. In Cernobbio, the lakeside Lido has a swimming pool. In nearby Moltrasio, there is a little beach. In Como city, there is an outdoor pool near Villa Olmo, but swimming in the lake is mostly not recommended or forbidden. Locals and visitors also enjoy traveling to Nesso where the bravest swimmers can jump into the lake from the ancient Roman bridge near the waterfall.
>Lake Como is located in a mountainous region. The surrounding pre-Alps might not seem very high, but the climate is nevertheless affected by the nearby mountains, and temperatures can change quickly. Be particularly attentive to the weather when hiking, and bring some warm and waterproof clothes with you!
There are so many great things to do around Lake Como! We can suggest and help you to arrange the following:
>Private boat rides
>Kayaks/SUPs in the lake
>Flights in a seaplane above the lake
>Yoga and meditation classes
>Hiking and foraging
>Trekking in the mountains
>Guided tours to Milan
