This Week!
In order to fight any further diffusion of Covid-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn when being indoor - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Though Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, some behaviours are allowed. Not only shops are at work, and bars and restaurants may serve, but also museums, theaters and cinemas operate again. Starting from Friday, August 6, however, entrance to many indoor venues is allowed only to people who can provide one of the COVID-19 green certifications, in paper or digital format, issued in order to certify they got an anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination, healed from COVID-19, or passed a fast or molecular antigen test with negative result for the SARS-CoV-2 virus performed within the last 48 hours. Curfew suspended.

Walking through snow
.:. Walking through snow 1/1/2010


I am visiting Milan from January 5th until 9th. If I would like to spend a day walking through snow, where would you recommend me to go? I just want to spend a day in a village with snow, beautiful lanscape and some cafes, easy to reach by train...

Thanks a lot for the information.

Kind regards

Thanks for writing to CiaoMilano :-)

We would go to Tirano (by train from Milano Centrale: for timetables, see the Ferrovie dello Stato timetable at our Railway webpage) and go by bus to Bormio or possibly take the Bernina train.

Since on January 5 it's probably going to snow again, you may find some closer places around Lake Como (we have ad audioguide about this, though not for wintertime)

Keep in touch and let us know

Happy New Year from CiaoMilano!
