What to do in Como when it rains?
Here are some ideas that will make your holiday enjoyable:
- A tour of the Villa
Despite the bad weather, it will be worth visiting the historic Villas of Lake Como.
You will have the opportunity to fully enjoy the interior, rich in furnishings, works of art and architectural details.
Villa Monastero – Varenna;
Villa Melzi e Villa Serbelloni – Bellagio;
Villa Carlotta – Tremezzo;
Villa Balbianello – Lenno;
Villa Olmo, Villa del Grumello and Villa Sucota – Cernobbio/Como;

- A day at the SPA
On the lake there are many hotels that allow access to their wellness centers, by reservation, also for external guests:
Grand Hotel di Tremezzo;
Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni di Bellagio;
Grand Hotel Imperiale di Moltrasio;
Casta Diva Resort di Blevio.
- Cooking classes
Attending a cooking class could be a good alternative during a gloomy day!
Have a look at the proposals of Tourscanner and Tripadvisor.
- Visit the center of Como
Always fascinating, even when it rains!
With the opportunity you could also visit the Silk Museum of Como…
In Via Benzi, 14 in Como there is a nice shop of clothes not to be missed!!
- Trip to Milan
Another great alternative is to visit the city of Milan!
It can be reached by train from Como, in about an hour.
If you prefer to go by car, but want to avoid driving downtown, you can park in Lampugnano and then take the subway.
You could start from the Triennale in Piazza Cadorna, visit the Pinacoteca di Brera, take a walk to the Arco della Pace and the Sempione Park.
As in any big city, you will appreciate every corner!
- Take part in a wine tasting
The wine warms the heart and soul and when it rains it is appreciated even more.
Have a look at the Tourscanner website to get an idea of the tours.
