Friday night we went to the Great Synagogue, about a 20-minute walk. After, we had a small meal in our room. Shabbat morning we went to Chabad, unfortunately they didnít get a Minyan, but had lunch there after.

On Sunday we took a trip up to Lake Como. The train took about 40 minutes each way. Besides for walking around, you can take a boat tour or a train type lift up a mountain. We ended up going for the boat ride, which wasnít bad and had some great views. At night we went out to Re Salomone, which is fancy and very good. We got the Lahmajain, Primavera, Home Made Mean Ravioli, and the Chicken Mix with Salad. For dessert, we decided to try the Tatin Cake. Might sound like a lot but wasnít that much.



was there a minyan during the week?
its only a 40 min train to lake como? google maps showes 90 min?

Dunno about during the week. I was there only for Shabbat.

The actually train from the Milan Main Station to Como Main Station is about 40 minutes.

For Denzel the burger was pretty good. Try to go to Re Solomone, was very good. Look at my Trip Report upthread for suggestions there.

What's the kashrus situation in milan

There are a bunch of kosher places to eat. And at least one of the bigger supermarkets in the Jewish area has some kosher products as well.
