Lario Express, Vintage Electric & Steam Trains to Lake Como

Ciao! I’m Celia. Originally from NY, I’m now living la dolce vita Lake Como Style and on a mission to live it to the fullest! I hope to inspire you to explore Milan & Lake Como, the culture, cuisine and creativity. Would you like to book a video call with me? I'd be happy to share my insider tips about Milan & Lake Como with you.

Trenitalia has launched two new itineraries for visitors to Lake Como. You can now travel on a vintage electric train with 1930’s “Centoporte” carriages between Milan and Como or on a historic Gr. 740 steam locomotive between Como and Lecco.
