City of Silk

Known for its idyllic location on the shores of Lake Como and at the foot of the Alps, Como is one of northern Italy's most popular tourist destinations.
Explore Como's surroundings by going to Leolandia (in Capriate San Gervasio), Bergamo (Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore & La Citta Alta) and Tremezzina (Villa del Balbianello & Villa Carlotta). There's much more to do: shake up your sightseeing with Lake Como Adventures, admire the striking features of Villa Olmo, stop by Mr. Savethewall, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica di San Fedele.

For traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Como day trip planning app.

Toronto, Canada to Como is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Toronto to Como. In May, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Genoa.
