is october/november a bad time to visit lake como

How is the weather in lake como during october and november? I have an opportunity to go then and was told it was too late in the season. I know hotels close during winter and the lake is cold and rough then. Also read that spring and fall were the best times to visit. Is october/november considered fall? Thanks and happy travels!!!

Yes, a lot of the hotels will be closed for the season. The ferry schedules are somewhat reduced. Weather probably not as nice but I am not sure the lake will be any rougher on a particular day.

May through mid October is the best season. After that things increasingly shut down and the weather gradually worsens. There is no guarantee on any specific day - except maybe the day before.

How much of a risk are you willing to take with our vacation time? How disappointed would you be if it were 45 and raining?

Thanks for all the replies. Not sure yet of the exact dates. If it is early Oct, then I may consider going. Otherwise guess I will wait for another opportunity. Hate to pass up any chance to go there though.
