    • Which resort to stay at Lake Garda?

      Lago di Garda Jan 5, 2017 at 1:52 AM

      Hello, what a great website. Hope someone can help with this. Me and my partner are hoping to go to Lake Garda in the summer but we are unsure as to which resort to base ourselves at. We are both 40 and although we are definitely beyond wanting a Club 18/30 type holiday we still want a nice lively resort that has a nice nightlife until fairly late at night. Last year we went to Sorrento and this was absolutely fantastic, lots of open-air restaurants, bars and even traditional music and singing in the streets at night, this was just perfect, so we wondered if any Lake Garda resort offered something similar? I was maybe thinking of Sirmione or Garda as a base as those would both be easier for us to get to, but I have no idea what the nightlife would be like. Hope someone can help? Thanks, Sarah.

    • Traveling from Como to Venice

      by BarbaraC24 Online Now Feb 29, 2016 at 11:25 AM

      We are leaving Switzerland after a week and staying one night in Como before we head back to Venice to fly home.  We will possess a Swiss Rail Pass for our travels in Switzerland. What is a reasonable time for us to be able to get to Milan to catch a train to Venice? I understand that you get a discount the earlier you book so I want to book that leg.  Not sure how long the trip is from Como to Milan or how often trains run. What is the cost and duration of the ticket Como to Milan and Milan to Venice?

      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

      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!!
