Tourist itineraries on Lake Como


The historic train leaves from Milano Centrale with destination Lecco, crossing the Lombard hinterland and accompanying travelers to discover magnificent villages. The travel experience already begins on board the train, among the timeless atmospheres of the ancient Centoporte cars, enjoying the panorama that flows slowly from the window. Among the major cultural attractions, the minor basilica of Seregno dating back to 1700, the Benedictine abbey of the late ‘800 and the ancient village of Cantù with its fascinating architecture dating back to the Middle Ages. In Lecco, a city dear to Manzoni for its lake, travelers on the historic train will have numerous cultural itineraries to choose from, namely a trip on the lake aboard a boat, trekking in the nearby nature reserves, cycle tourism, and the possibility of practicing water sports on the lake.
