Bergamo to Bellagio & Weekly ferry tickets

by sueindevon

we are travelling from bergamo airport to bellagio in mid september.
it looks as though the best option is bus/train then ferry.

Any help on finding the bus from the airport to the railway station, getting the right train, changing trains and finding the ferry station?

Also, is there a weekly ferry ticket available, what does it cover and can we buy it when we arrive to go to bellagio?

We do not speak Italian and wonder how easy our journey will be?

Many thanks in advance.
Sue

Having been to Lake Como many times via Bergamo (Orio al Serio) airport, I would suggest taking the airport shuttle bus to the train station in Bergamo.
The bus timetable and fares can be found at

http://www.atb.bergamo.it/airportbus/inglese/index_en.htm

Take the train from Bergamo to Varenna via Lecco at a cost of less than €6, the timetable for the train with connection can be found at

http://www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=ad1ce14114bc9110VgnVCM10000080a3e90aRCRD

A 5 minute walk down the hill from the train staion in Varenna will take you to the ferry terminal where you will have many options to cross to Bellagio (approx 15mins), the ferry timetable (and it is important that you look at the ferry or traghetto timetable) can be found at

At Varenna ferry terminal, you can buy a weekly ticket that covers travel on the centre of the lake (centro lago) and covers travel between Lenno and Bellano with all the towns inbetween.

It also offers a discount if travelling further on the lake ie in the direction of either Como or Colico.

I would not advise travelling on the hydrfoil (sevicio rapido) unless necesary as it is quite claustraphobic as there are only 8 seats on the outside, uncomfortable due uncomfortable to buffeting of the waves and noise of the engines.

I regard this is much easier than travelling to Como town as the train station in Como is some distance from the ferry terminal. If you do decide to travel to Como town, there is a bus that leaves the train station and travels to Bellagio,
The bus timetable can be found at

your starting point in Como will Stazione FS

Travel Tips for Bellagio

Palm trees

by Aurorae

Palm trees in the Alpine area?! Impossble! you'd say. Well, it is NOT! Bellagio is full of palm trees (as well as some other places along the lake), and not only palms, but olives as well! Olive oil from Como lake is very famous! Anyway, this Mediterranean flora gives the impression of being somewhere at the seaside, not in the Alps! :) And it certainly adds to the charm of the place.

The beach house

by Aurorae

There are also the lucky ones who are not so chic and pompous, but they still have the beach house in Bellagio!!! There are also very small, normal houses, not only villas. Imagine the lucky fellow!

Varenna

by Aurorae

Varenna is another lovely colourful town on the Como lake, just opposite of Bellagio, on the Lecco's side of the lake. It is a very picturesque town, with various coloured buildings, lovely promenade, little coves and secret places to escape from the crowd, many lovely cafes and restaurants...
Above is the beautiful castle, Castello di Vezio, and nearby there is a famous Fiumelatte (Milk River), one of the shortest rivers in the world, just barely over 200m.
If you have the time, don't miss driving up under the mountain grigna, you can arrive by car till 1500m (Varenna is at cca. 200m), and the view along the way is BREATHTAKING! There are many viewpoints to stop and amdire the landscape.
Up there it's much colder, and in autumn, winter and spring, usually snowy, it starts snowing very early.

The Mystery Palace

by starship

Sorry to say that if our tour guide told us anything about this "villa" I don't recall it. I just remember thinking that it was a beautiful example of Italian architecture and the gardens and lakeside "gazebo" were so pleasing to the eye, I could imagine it as the setting for characters in a historical period novel! This magical-looking place was in the town of Varenna. I wonder what life is like here, I wonder who lives here, I wonder, I wonder..........!

Lake Como ferries

by CarolynShort

There are regular services from the lakeside promenade at Bellagio to other towns around Lake Como (it's one advantage of its central position on the Lake)... there's a choice of normal ferry, car ferry or hydrofoil. We rarely had to wait longer than half an hour for the next service (might be more if you're limited to the car ferry). One of the best ways to see the scenery, as well as get from one place to another.
