Lake Como

Jump to last reply

I am so disappointed. I have been planning for weeks and was ready to purchase my airline tickets, and pay for the apartment in Cernobbio today. We had planned to visit many of towns around the lake, travel to Switzerland for a day or two and also attend the F1 race in Monza.

Late last night I read several articles (nothing has been reported in the U.S. on this) that Switzerland has closed it border with Italy and hundreds of migrants have erected tents and flimsy dwellings at the train station in Como. They are waiting to pay smugglers to get them into Switzerland. I know there are migrants all over Europe, but for me to have to use this train station daily to get to other points on the Lake, Monza and Switzerland has me thinking that perhaps I should postpone this trip to another time.

I know others will have opinions on this and I am very willing to listen.

Thank you.
