Transportation Options from Bergamo Airport to Lake Como

Lake Como is the third-largest lake in Italy and it’s located in northern Italy’s Lombardy region. The Bergamo Alps surround the lake, creating stunning mountain scenery, which makes Lake Como a very popular summer and winter destination for locals and tourists. If you’re travelling to Bergamo Airport, which is around 90 km away from Como City, you can take a taxi or pre-book a private transfer to get from Bergamo Airport to Lake Como. It may seem like a pricey trip but it’s the best value-for-money option; the local public transport network doesn’t provide a good connection and getting from Bergamo Airport to Lake Como by train or bus requires multiple changes and using different means of transport so it’s not worth it.
