Is it easier and quicker to reach Bellagio via train to Como and bus to Bellagio, how often and how late do the buses run? Or go to Milano Centrale change for Varenna and then the ferry. Arriving at 6 o'clock on a Friday evening and going by the timetables we wont be reaching Bellagio till about 10 o'clock.
Wondered if anyone could help with my travel dilemma. Coming to Milan for a week in September and wondered where to base for sightseeing, easy transport links and restaurants. Fancied Bellagio but it may pose problems getting back for an early morning flight. Any suggestions? Any views on Lecco?

Can one go from Como to Bellagio in Italy?
My wife and a I are going to be spending 3 nights in Bellagio in mid September. I have narrowed down the hotel options to Hotel Belvedere and Hotel Excelsior Splendide. We want to stay in a 4 star or better, and yet nOT spend a fortune ! Anyone who has stayed at either hotel, please give us your opinion and any advice that you can offer so that the stay will be pleasant. Hotel Belvedere seems to offer splendid views, but is the walk up the hill an issue? my wife and I are in our early 60s, healthy and active, but we don't want to get tired walking up and down all day. If any of you suggest an alternate hotel, we can still change our minds. Thanks\ K
My wife and I are flying into Venice in September. After 4 nights there, we want to go by train to Bellagio. Am I correct in that we should take an express train from Venice to Milano central; then another train from Milano Central to Como. From Como we take a a ferry? I have done that once, it took over an hour but it was very scenic- the ferry. I understand that there is there another way_ I understand Varenna is an option, but has a steep walk from stain to ferry. If we leave Venice around 12 noon or 1 pm , how long will it take to go to Bellagio? Then next on our return, we have to go from Bellagio to malpensa airport to fly back. I intend getting to Maplensa the night before and staying at the Sheraton at the airport. Any advice on best way to get from Bellagio to Malpensa? Should we go to Como and take train to Milano Central and then take the bus to Malpensa, or can we go by train directly from Como to Malpensa? I recall that I to by train I had to change trains at a station with a name starting with S.... Thanks for the help. Rao
Our family of 5 will be staying in belaggio and need to get to Milan as early as possible in the morning. Leaving from our hotel near the water, how do we get to the train to get to Milan? How early is it possible to get to the train station that can take us to the fastest train to Milan? Grazie!
How does one travel between Lake Como towns later in the evening, say after 8:00pm (20:00)? Grazie!

My husband & I will be arriving in Milan via train and plan to go directly to Bellagio. We plan to stay 3 nights at the Grand Hotel Villa Sirbelloni --- any comments on if it is worth the price and if 3 days will be too long? We plan to rent a car from Milan & drive to/from Milan train station keeping car for stay -- is a car more of a nuisance than asset there. We will be going on via train from Bellagio to Venice.
This past summer we were in Bellagio and visited an antique store which was on a side street but had a display window on the main street, just down from Azalea clothing store. Does anyone know how I can contact the antique store? Thanks for any help you can give me.
We are traveling from Bellagio early on the 15th to arrive in Parma by 9-9:30am. Is this possible given we have to take both a ferry and a train? I can't find the earliest ferry departure time and not sure how long it takes to arrive at the nearest train station. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
We will be in Bellagio in mid-September; from Bellagio we will go on to Venice. I am wondering if there is an alternative way to go from Bellagio to Venice other than the train route that goes from Como to Milan to Venice? Are there suitable buses or car services (not car rentals)? Thanks to all to any who consider this question.
We will be driving from Lucca to Lake Como in July. We have a 3 night rental in the town of Bellegio. I will be driving up from Lucca in a rental. Haven't decided which rental company -Hertz or AutoEurope. We will be arriving in the Lakes area on a Sat. Could someone advise me on the best place to ditch the car and catch a ferry/bus/ to our place in Bellegio?? Is there anyone out there that would recommend that we keep the car? I've heard that finding a place to park in July is brutal (hotel does not have parking) so I'd prefer to rely on public transportation. Bob
Hello, I need to go from Belagio(or Varenna) to Riva del Garda in as quick a time as possible via public transportation. So far the best I have been able to come up with is bus to Lecco, train to Brescia, bus to Riva. Does this make sense? Any other options? Thanks so much for any help. Sincerely, peter
we are travelling from bergamo airport to bellagio in mid september. it looks as though the best option is bus/train then ferry. Any help on finding the bus from the airport to the railway station, getting the right train, changing trains and finding the ferry station? Also, is there a weekly ferry ticket available, what does it cover and can we buy it when we arrive to go to bellagio? We do not speak Italian and wonder how easy our journey will be? Many thanks in advance. Sue
My wife and I will be spending 3 days in Bellagio and arriving from Venice. Is it best to just take the train from Venice to Bellagio (if that is possible)? Or I am best taking the train from Venice to Milan, then train Milan to Varenna? Someone said that if I take the train to Varenna, I can then just take the ferry to Bellagio and it is much faster, cheaper, and easier(???) Also, does anyone have any good recommendations for staying in Bellagio? Hotel preferred, but open to staying in a B&B (never have been before). Thanks.
We are a family of four and will be staying in Lezzeno, near Bellagio, at the end of October. We need to make it back to Bergamo airport on Monday 27th October for a 10am flight home (so need to get to the airport around 9am). Is it possible to make it to the airport this early on public transport - we had hoped not to have to hire a car during our stay. Thanks very much
I am considering a week rental in Bellagio next June with my two daughters, who will be 5 and 8. We are thinking that staying for a week somewhere may be best so we don't wear them (and ourselves) out with driving around to different towns and hotels. It also seems more economical to rent an apartment than stay in a hotel. We will also add on a few days perhaps in Milan and/or Venice at either end of the trip. My question is whether a week in Bellagio is too much? Can the children swim in the lake? What else is there to do. My husband and I would be happy to sit and read a book, but the kids probably want a little bit of action! We plan to have a car and will be able to do day trips (i understand Switzerland is not far). Overall, is Bellagio a good place for a family?
Thinking of staying in the village of San Giovanni in september - how easy is it to get to Bellagio each day. We will not have a car, on some review sites it says the road is dangerous to walk as there is no pavement? Does anyone have any info? If we went into Bellagio in the evening for a meal would there be taxis available to come back?
We are traveling to the Lake Como area (staying in Menaggio) and will want to spend some time in Bellagio. There are six of us and I am picking up the tab. (I am a good parent!) Can anyone recommend some great eateries at a reasonable price? Also, if you are familiar with Menaggio and can answer the same question for that wonderful little town, I would greately appreciate it!
I was planing to stay in Varenna for 5 days at the beginning of june but am now considering Bellagio. Why? I want a bit of buzz and activity - lots of options for dining. I've read wonderful things about Varenna. Any thoughts either way? Thanks for your time and consideration.

Hi, We are planning a trip to the lake Como region and were attracted to Bellagio but it seems that accommodation is booked out far in advance. We are looking for a waterfront hotel or apartment and wonder if Como or elswhere on the lake is as good. Maybe some travellers have experiences that they could pass on. michaeljb
Hi, we are travelling to Bellagio in October. Can you please tell me if there are plenty of ferries leaving from Bellagio to Como in October. We will be trying to get to Como S. Giovanni to catch a train that leaves at around 9:00am. I have looked at the ferry timetables (which I can't really understand anyway) and they do not have a timetable for October. I don't want us to miss our train. Thanks for your help. Cheers Cas
