While our trip to Milan wasn't the longest one, it was apt enough to squeeze in a day trip to our schedule. As per the theme of the trip, we weren't quite sure where to go - so we let destiny decide (I advise you not to do that). The top options are - Como, Verona and Florence all year round and Cinque terre which I would recommend for summers.
Since the tickets to Florence were sold out, we decided to head to Como and rightly so. Como is a city at the southern tip of Lake Como in northern Italy. It's very famous for the lake, the gothic como cathedral and the furnicular ride to Brunaten.
