      Initially looked at Como. Having second thoughts. We have 4 nights (minus jet lag only 3 days to explore.) We are considering Varenna.
      We would be catching a train from Malpensa directly to Como/Varenna after a long haul from Australia. What are the pros/cons of choosing Varenna?
      A major "thing to do is" the Berlina Express for one day.

    • MXP to Rail station - Timing? Reservations?

      Milan Mar 26, 2014 at 10:32 PM

      Is there any advantage / disadvantage to making train reservations?

      Our flight from JFK is scheduled to arrive on a Friday before 7:00am. Our plan is to take the Express Train to Centralle station for the 2.5 hour trip to Venice. It would SEEM that the 9:35am departure from Milano would be reasonable goal, no?

      If we get to the station early, would we be able to swap our tickets for an earlier departure?
      In the more likely scenario, if our flight is delayed - and we miss the 9:35am departure, are our tickets worthless, or able to be used - without penalty on a later departure?

      I am bringing a group to play rugby in Lecco. We arrive at Malpensa at 8.30am and then have the day free to get to Lecco at about 4.30pm. The bus wil collect us at the airport and drop the group in Como and the group can walk around for a while. From here we catch the ferry to Bellagio and walk around there as well. From Bellagio we go to Varenna where the bus collects the group to go to Lecco. We will be arriving on 16 April 2014.

      what are your thoughts about this arrangement? What is the cost of the ferry trip per person? What is there to see in Como town centre of historical importance?

      Boating at Lake Como

      by phingy Online Now Mar 11, 2013 at 7:00 AM

      Hi guys,

      I'm planning to go boating at Lake Como during the end of October. I'll be taking a train from Lugano to Como S. Giovanni (I presume this is the train station in Como town?) and would preferably want to take a boat ride early in the morning.

      Any idea on the accessibility to the lake from Como town and if the accommodation (hostel) is expensive there?

      Also, should I take the water taxi to Bellagio or Varenna? Do recommend!

      Appreciate any advice! THANK YOU!!

      please help with following.

      I am travelling to Milan and continue my trip to Verona and Venice.
      I have one free day on 27aug. when I would make a one day trip to Lake Como.

      My plan is to arrive to Varenna by train at 09.23 and return from Como around 18.00-18.30...

      MY questions are:

      -How far is the Varenna train station from the downtown and the ferry station?
      -Is there any ferry/boat from Varenna to Como? I did not find any but
      probably checked the wrong site
      -How many hours I need in Varenna to look around?
      -HOw far is the port from Como City center-and which is the nearest train
      station to the port? (from where shoul I take my train back to Italy central)

      I have only one day for this trip and do not want to miss any train/boat as I have booked hotel in Milan.

      Thank you for any advise

      Como overnight - what to do - hotel

      We'll be staying overnight in Como on our way to the adriatic cost this summer (via Mantova and Ostellato/Comacchio, one night each). Well, I guess we'll have some hours in the afternoon/evening after having arrived and then some time the next morning. What would you recommend us to do? Visiting the old town of Como? What are the "must see's"? Do you think we will have enough time to see other places around the lake? Or maybe choose another place for the night at the lake? Could you recommend a hotel (reasonable price with parking facilities)? At the the end of August / beginning of September, they only seem to have pricy ones. Thanks in advance :-)
