Getting Around

The centre of Como is rather compact and can be covered easily on foot.



The boats and aliscafi of Navigazione Lago di Como connect the town with most of the villages sitting on the shores of the lake, the former are slower and right for sightseeing, the latter are faster and make less stops.


A taxi service is provided by the Comune di Como, local phone numbers are +39 031-2772, and +39 031-261515.
