LAKE COMO

Lake Como is just a 20-minute, 25 Euro taxi ride, or 3 Euro bus ride away from FoxTown. We had planned to take the bus but when we saw the S-Class Mercedes waiting in the taxi stand, we figured the extra Euros were worth relaxation in luxury after a serious day of shopping.

Nonetheless, here is how to get to the Moltrasio section of Como where we stayed via bus.

Transportation

Bus from Moltrasio to Como:

  • Line C10/20 Como-Argegno SPT
  • Line C29 Como-Tosnacco SPT

(refer to: www.trenitalia.it for the timetable)

The scenic taxi ride to The Hotel Grand Imperial reminded me of films I’ve seen of the famous lake town.  This place is truly magical no matter which part of Como you are visiting. The Grand Imperial  is a great hotel choice if you don’t want to spend over $700 for a room with a view. Although our section of the hotel wasn’t renovated, it did come with an incredible view and a huge balcony. I am dreaming of my return.
