Directions from Milan Bergamo, Orio al Serio airport to Lake Como

On exiting the airport, turn right onto the main road and then shortly afterward you will exit off to the right following signs for Milan A4 (Green Autostrada signs). Stay on this motorway until you take the exit for the MILAN (A8), follow until you pick up signs for A9 COMO and LAGHI (Lakes). Follow this motorway all the way to the Como pay station, taking the right lanes if you want to pay by cash (remember some small change) or take the left lanes and follow VIACARD signs if you want to pay by credit card. Then you have 3 Como exits to choose from depending on where your are travelling to.

If you are travelling to resorts along the eastern shore e.g. Nesso, Lezzeno exit at  Como South and then follow signs for Bellagio. This will take you around Como town and onto the eastern shore lake road (SP44), which you then follow all the way to your destination. This road is narrow and windey and consequently quite slow.

If, however you are travelling to Bellagio, this road is a long way round. You would be better to go via Lecco – click here to go to AA route planner for more detailed directions.

If you are travelling to any resorts along the western shore e.g Cernobbio, Moltrasio, Carate Urio, Laglio, Brienno, Argegno, Colonno, Sala Comacina and all the way up to Domaso and Gravedonaat the very northern tip of the Lake, take the exit for COMO NORTH, which is the last exit,  after COMO MONTE OLIMPINO, immediately at the end of the tunnel so make sure you get into the inside lane.

Follow the main road as you come off the slip road and you will come to alarge roundabout. If you are heading for resorts between Cernobbio and Laglio (Moltrasio, Carate Urio), you will need the lower lake road, so follow signs for Cernobbio here, which is straight on and then continue to follow Cernobbio, go through the centre of the village (shops each side of a 1-way road) and then you are on the right road (Via Vecchia Regina, SP71)and just follow this until you reach your resort.

If you are travelling to resorts from Brienno to the North of the Lake, you will need the fast road, so follow signs for Menaggio and turn left at this roundabout. This one road (Via Regina, SS340) will take you to all other resorts on the western shore.
