Train from MXP to Lake Como (Trezzone) and from Trezzone to Venice

by rastrent

I will be flying into MXP early AM on 4 July and will be staying at Villa Tres Jolie in Trezzone. I want to do my trip without renting a car, so I would like to take a train to the Lake Como region. However, I am not sure if I should take a train to Como and take a ferry all the way up the lake or if I should take it to Varenna and make my way to Trezzone from there. I am willing to go a slower way if it will allow for better sightseeing and perhaps a stop in a nice town for a meal.

My next stop four days later will be Venice - on that day I will want to be traveling as quickly as possible. Should I return all the way to Como and take the train from there or go via Varenna? In either case, should I purchase my tickets in advance for these trips?

Thanks in advance for any help this forum can provide.

I can't help with which route to take, sorry.

The nearest ferry stop is Domaso. According to the Villa website there are regular buses from there to within 5 minutes' walk of the Villa Tres Jolie, but I suggest you email them to find out which stop to ask for (unless you want to take a taxi?).

Ferry routes, times and info in English here:

You can find train times, details and fares in English on the official Italian railway site here:

http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

so you can work out whether to go to Venice from Como or Varenna by checking departures and journey times.

You definitely do not need to buy tickets online in advance, or even in advance of arriving at the station. You do need to ensure you validate (date-stamp) your tickets before boarding, using the yellow machines on the platform. There are on-the-spot fines for non-validation, and guards do check!

With regard to travel from Malpensa to Como, this year i used the Malpensa Express train service with 1 change at Sarrono.

Would thoroughly recommend!

Train station within 500 metres the main ferry terminal in Como.

Thanks to all who replied! Posting this from MXP as I've just landed. There is a bus at 9:30 AM that takes two hours to get to Como - I ended up buying a ticket on it for 18 Euro to save the trouble of changing trains. From there I will take the hydrofoil to Bellagio, stop for lunch, and then go on to Domaso.

am leaving for lake como on 9/16/10 and have looked hi and lo on transportation to and from lake como from mxp airport. finally saw yr e-mail regarding the bus and am thrilled that u found it. can u tell me if the bus is easy to find at the airport? we do not want to be bothered renting a car but on our return to milan on sunday they do not have very many trains leaving from como to milan and it would end up taking all day so am hoping the buses run more often on the wknd.
hope u had a great trip and let me know if u have any suggestions on must see things and places to eat.

Travel Tips for Como

The city of Como

by croisbeauty

Lake Como is situated in subalpine area of Italy and is of glacial origin. The lake is inhabited since prehistoric times and has always played important role as a line of communication between the northern regions and the Po valley. The Romans settled in after the Gauls, and under their rule this area gained strategic importance.
After the Franks, around year 1000, Como became a free-city, but still had to fight for its independence from feudal Visconti and Sforza families. Afterwards, Como was ruled by the Spaniards, then by the Austrians and finally by the French.

Villa Olmo back gardens

by Aurorae

Passing through two arches, you arrive to the back yard of the villa, which is nothing special, except for the impressive tree and a small neoclassical temple. It's a popular area for dogs as there is a big grass meadow.

BMW cat

by Aurorae

This cat was hilarious! As clasy as the car it occupied (not naive cat at all!) It was in front of the yachting club, of course, where all the super expensive show-off snob cars gather. This a la Lucifer cat was resting comfortably in its de luxe sofa. :)

Carnival

by MalenaN

I visited Como the last week in February, so it was carnival season. Children have a week holiday from school and they can be seen in different masquerade costumes (especially the younger ones) and sometimes their parents too. In Como there was a big parade on the Sunday I visited, but I just saw some glimpses of it. In streets and squares, especially at Piazza del Duomo, there was a lot of confetti.

skating on ice

by d_d

Between October and April, you can skate on ice in Casate (it's very close to Como, about 5 minutes by car).
The ticket's 3.10 EUR (=3.23$), it's a bit more expensive if you have to hire the skates.
All over the year, in Centro sportivo di Casate you can swim and practice many other sports.
