click here for where to stay in lake Como https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GFNNMkakdE&index=18&list=PLRMyJVhdxoV_exUMKcx6kG7itYvDGFrf- Best app to navigate Italian trains - Trenit https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.baroncelli.oraritrenitalia&hl=en ttps://itunes.apple.com/us/app/trenìt-find-trains-in-italy/id1058908183?mt=8 Probably one of the most romantic places on earth is Lake Como (Como Lago) It is absolutely amazing, everywhere you go you have breathtaking views. It is very easy to get to from Malpensa airport in Milan. You can either take a taxi for aprox 150Euros or save a bundle with the train and ferry. I chose the train and it couldnt have been easier. In terminal 1, I followed the sighns for the train which brought me to their ticket counter. I just told them where I wanted to go and they gave me my tickets. The fastest was to Como Lago is with a stop in Sarrona. This train runs aprox every 20 minutes and is around a 20 minute ride. Then you will grab the Como Lago train, which runs less often, and is an aprox 43 minute ride, ending in Como. I found an amazing app, TRENIT, just search for it in your app store. This app will show you all options for trains as well as platform information. This was awesome because I only had 2 minutes to change trains or I would have to wait for the next one which was 1-2 hours later. So since I knew that I would be arriving on platform 2 and departing on platform 4, I was able to run and made it perfectly. There are plenty of awesome places to stay right there in como, or head to one of the other lake villages. I stayed at Tremezzo, which is just across from Bellagio so I grabbed the ferry. They have the fast ferry with inside seating which only takes about 43 minutes, they also offer the slow ferry, with inside and outside seating. This one takes much longer because it stops at each village on its way. Once in Tremezzo, I stayed at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, which was AMAZING!!! after I got situated I bought a ferry day pass for only 15EURs which takes you between Lenno, Tremezzo, Bellagio, Varrena and Menaggio. Get off and on as much as you want. Bellagio is ine of the favorites for most vacationers, but I fell in love with Varrena. You can hike up to the top of the mountain and visit Castela de Vesio, also explore Villa Monestero which offers amazing gardens and views.

Rick Steves' Europe Travel Guide | No trip to Italy is complete without Milan and Lake Como. In Milan we'll take a peek at Italy's highest fashion, fanciest delis, grandest cemetery, and greatest opera house...not to mention Leonardo's Last Supper. Then we'll cruise along Lake Como, settling down in the lakeside village of Varenna...classic honeymoon country, where Italy meets the Alps. © 2006 Rick Steves' Europe

We take a ferry across the magnificent Lake Como. Passing by Villa del Balbianello, where the ending scene in James Bond: Casino Royale and one of the Star Wars movies were filmed (you can take a tour, but we were there on one of the days it was closed!) and float by Villa Carlotta. We end by walking through gardens of Giardini di Villa Melzi on Bellagio. Make sure to get a lemon drink after the gardens. And, we still don't know where George Clooney's house is.
Como Lake is amazing and I've spend a day in Bellagio and Lenno. Below are the places I've visited - including the place where Star Wars movie was shot :)
1. Ristorante Metropolo Bellagio – Must try food spaghetti con bottarga and beef tartar ☺
2. Ristorante Al punto
3. Lenno – Villa del Balbianello ( where they shoot the Star Wars Movie – Anna and Padme Wedding)
