Prices explained

At Loco2 we believe in price transparency. We use real data from Loco2 searches to estimate the cheapest fares you should be able to find for your journey.

The cheapest price is the lowest fare we've ever found for this journey. These prices can usually be found by searching when booking opens but they vary due to availability, which depends on factors like the day of the week or time of year.

More popular journeys include 30 day advance and 7 day advance prices. These are updated every two weeks using prices we've found by searching exactly 7 or 30 days from the most recent Thursday (we picked Thursday because this is when average prices are usually found).

30 day and 7 day prices fluctuate based on demand and availability at the time of search. For example, the 7-day price in summer is likely to be more expensive than the same journey in winter.

Prices are sourced in GBP and converted to other currencies using the daily market exchange rate.

We're always seeking to improve how price-checking works, and we welcome feedback on how we can make it better.

  1. It is easy to travel by train from Paris to Como, the lakeside resort in northern Italy. There is an overnight option, using the Thello night train from Paris to Milan, then continuing early the next morning on a local train from Milan to Como. But if you prefer travelling entirely by day, you can use the direct TGV service which links Paris and Milan three times each day. Leaving Paris, the train journeys through Burgundy and the Alps and then crosses Piedmont at a slower pace. It stops in Turin before continuing to Milan.

    In Milan you alight at Porta Garibaldi station, changing there onto a local suburban train to reach Bergamo. There are faster trains from Milan to Como, but these fast services leave from Milan Centrale and require a change of stations in Milan. It's better to use the more convenient, albeit slower, direct train from Porta Garibaldi to Como.

    Bookings for this journey normally open two months in advance, and that's when you'll find the cheapest tickets.

    Fast TGV trains leave the Gare de Lyon in Paris three times each day for Milan, taking just over 7 hours for the journey. These direct services to Italy speed south from the French capital, cutting through Burgundy to reach their first stop in Lyon. Thereafter the pace slows as the landscape becomes more mountainous.

    All trains on this route stop at Chambéry and Modane before entering Italy, where the train then makes two stops - at Bardonecchia and Oulx. Then it's on to Milan with a stop along the way at Turin.

    Fast, but infrequent, EuroCity and regional trains leave from Milan Centrale for Como. Slower, but very frequent, trains on suburban rail route S11 leave from Porta Garibaldi station in Milan. Both of these routes take you to San Giovanni station in Como, just a short walk west of the centre of town. Whichever option you choose, the train runs north from Milan through Monza and Seregno – a dismal sprawl of endless suburbs and industrial estates. Como comes as a great relief.
