Florence to Lake Como in July

Hello everyone! I am trying to book a train ticket for July 3rd/4th from Florence to Lake Como on Trenitalia. But all options show invalid, irrespective of the date i select. Is it not possible to take a direct train from Florence to Lake Como? Is there any other travel mode we could use and how long does it usually take?

Thank you in advance...

Regards

There are no direct trains.

You can make reservations for July now on some connections from Firenze S. M Novella to Como S. Giovanni - see www.trenitalia.com clicking the British flag first for English. These are the connections which use a Eurocity train with reserved seats from Milan onwards.

The other connections to Como S. Giovanni and connections to Varenna-Esino if you are going there (it's more convenient for much of the lake) are by Regional train from Milan onwards. These trains have no reserved seats, and tickets can be bought in Florence (or any other station which is staffed or has a ticket machine) once you are in italy without any problem. If you wish to reserve one of these through journeys online, you will have to wait another week or two, but it would probably be cheaper to buy Firenze S. M. Novella to Milano Centrale online now and the Regional ticket once in italy.

I am interested in this same trip (although reversed as we will be going from Como to Florence). Do you have to wait long for connecting trains? What is the estimated travel time in total?

Obviously the answers depend on departure station and departure time.

Times are now online for dates past June 8, so simply look at the Trenitalia website for times from Varenna-Esino or Como S. Giovanni to Firenze S. M. Novella.
