The town of Como is only 50km to the north of Milano, so it's served by trains on the city's suburban rail network, which is managed by Trenord.
The town centre in Como is served by multiple stations, with the main railway station being San Giovanni, as it's located on the main railway route on to Switzerland.
Como S. Giovanni is served by both Regionale and express trains, the latter are non-stop from Milano, but if you'll be taking a day trip from Milan, the express trains will be a much more expensive option.
For a day trip from Milan, the best option is to take trains to an alternative station, Como Lago.
It lives up to its name with a lake shore location and is also conveniently located in the town centre.
When travelling between most cities by train there is only one logical option, though on other journeys there is a choice between different trains or alternative routes. If different options are available you can use the info to decide which is best for you.
