San Siro is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy, located on the northwest shore of Lake Como immediately north of Menaggio and south of Cremia.

The comune was formed on March 30, 1999, by the fusion of the former comuni of Sant'Abbondio and Santa Maria Rezzonico.

San Siro borders the following municipalities: Cremia, Menaggio, Plesio; and, on the other side of the lake in the Province of Lecco: Bellano, Dervio and Perledo. Sights include the Rezzonico Castle, the 15th century church of Santa Maria and the Villa Gaeta, designed in the 1920 by Gino Coppedè's studio.
