Best Way Mantova to Como

by okmouse45 Online Now Aug 22, 2010 at 9:20 PM

Has anyone taken a different route other than going back thru Milan? If so, what was it? What station in Como is best for being close to the walkway and the funicular? We cannot do hydrofoil or any boat due to sea sickness. Thanks for any help.

    If you look at the rail network map of Italy here:

    bueker.net/trainspotting/map...

    (double-click to enlarge)

    you will see that your options are limited.

    The Italian railway website in English only lists options via Milan

    trenitalia.it/homepage_en.ht...

    I think even if you try to plot another route (I tried Mantova>Bergamo>Como, for example) you will probably still end up going via Milan...and almos certainly taking longer.

    I think the nearest station to the funicular to Brunate is probably Como Nord Lago but if you look at this streetmap:

    multimap.com/world/IT/Lombar...

    you can see exactly where all the Como stations are.

    It is possible, but it would take a very long time and four changes, because you would need to use only regional trains. The one-way ticket would cost just 15.50. This is the route:
    Mantova - Piadena
    Piadena - Brescia
    Brescia - Bergamo
    Bergamo - Lecco
    Lecco - Como
