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.

Also, should I take the water taxi to Bellagio or Varenna? Do recommend!
Appreciate any advice! THANK YOU!!

Dear VT Friends,
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?
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 :-)
As far as Lake Maggiore vs Lake Como, which is the best choice and why? What are the differences and what are the most popular things to do at each lake? Thanks!

I'm planning a trip to Lake Como from September 10 to the 17th. We plan to fly into Milan. I will be traveling with my in-laws, my wife and my 1 year old daughter. What would be the best way to get to Lake Como from the airport? Do I need to buy train tickets in advance? I would like to use public transport for the entire trip - is that possible? Can I take a direct train to a town on Lake Como and be happy with it. What is the best town to go to with elderly in-laws and a one year old? I would rather rent a villa or an apartment - what is the availability of something like that at Lake Como?
travelling from uk to como in sept.Unsure by which means to get to our apartment in Mennagio, Lake Como. Arrive Malpensa in day time. Worried about traffic if hiring a car (husband not driven in europe for few years and never in Italy) and also timings for getting back to airport in time. Not sure whether to give the responsibily to a third party (private transfer) or would we be missing out if we not have car? We are there for 10 days. Public transport could take so long depending on connections?
I will be coming from Pescara on June 19th. How do I do this by train? Does the train travel direct, or do I change trains somewhere?
