    • Day trip Bellagio

      by Jennifermorcom Online Now Jan 31, 2014 at 4:05 AM

      I am planning a day trip by boat to Bellagio and once there want to visit Villa Melzi and look around Bellagio also would like to see Villa Balbianello and also Villa Carlotta which means zipping across the lake. Is it possible to go to Lenno first on to Tremezzo and then to Bellagio? Is it possible or even worth trying to fit all of this in one day? The aim is to enjoy the lake and not to rush around just to fit it all in? Any help planning this day trip would be much appreciated : ) Jenny

    • Group visit

      by ebantucker1 Online Now Sep 6, 2013 at 9:03 AM

      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!!

      We want to take a taxi transfer from the airport in Milan to a hotel on Lake Como. What is the approximate time by road to the south of the lake? And price if anyone knows?

      If we decide on Lake Maggiore, say Stresa or Baveno, what would that taxi transfer time be?

      Many thanks.

      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

      Can you swim in the lake in the town of Bellagio? Is the water warm enough to go swimming in early September? I plan to travel to Bellagio from September 10 to 17 and would like to know if I should pack swimming trunks. If you can not swim in Bellagio how far north would one go to be able to swim in the lake - which town?
