Lake Como by train
another question ....
My husband thinks a day trip to Lake Como might be in order, as previously mentioned we staying in Barga, Lucca for 4 nights, however my question is more if perhaps it is recommended that we spend one of those nights in Florence for easier train travel to Lake Como, it looks like train travel from Barga is a longer ride? time wise
we have one night reserved in Florence at the end of our trip and could add another night in order to take a day trip to Como if recommended
your opinions please ?

another night in lake como
it would make things easier for traveling you were departing for L. Como directly from Florence - more trains and less travel time.

Where are you flying in and out of??
If you want to include Lake Como, I wouldn't do a day trip from Florence -- I would just head to Lake Como for an overnight or two so that you can better enjoy the time there.

we are flying in and out of Florence, and have hotel for the night in Florence the day we arrive as well as the night before departure in Florence.
thanks Lourdes and Donna for your response, you both are great!

Well, you could arrive in Florence, spend the first night, then head north to Lake Como, then head back down and to Barga, then on to southern Tuscany and then back to Florence ;-).
Lake Como is an entire lake, so you'll have to decide where around the lake you intend to go to.... I haven't ever been so unfortunately can't recommend any one place over another specifically, sorry!
