Milan to Como by train

Prices explained

Prices explained

At Rail Europe we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Rail Europe searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

EuroCity or Regional/Suburban train

It's a short hop on the train from Milan to Como, a journey of 50 kilometres which transports you from Italy’s busiest commercial hub to one of the country’s most relaxing lakeside resorts. It’s no surprise that many who work in Milan prefer to live in Como and travel in each day by train. So this can be a very busy route at commuter times.

If you are in the very middle of Milan, make for Centrale station, from where a dozen fast trains each day speed to Como in under 40 minutes. There is a much more frequent, but slower, option from Porta Garibaldi station in Milan, where suburban trains depart every half an hour for Como.

Milan to Como San Giovanni

Fast, but infrequent, EuroCity and regional trains leave from Milan Centrale for Como. Slower, but very frequent, trains on suburban rail route S11 leave from Porta Garibaldi station in Milan. Both of these routes take you to San Giovanni station in Como, just a short walk west of the centre of town. Whichever option you choose, the train runs north from Milan through Monza and Seregno – a dismal sprawl of endless suburbs and industrial estates. Como comes as a great relief.
