public transport to Orta San Giulio

Going back to travel to Orta San Giulio, would it not be easier to fly to Linate and then pick up a train at Milan Central to Orta Miasino? How much would a taxi cost from Miasino to Orta San Giulio?

You could certainly do that, although the train ride would imply one change (at Novara). No idea baout taxi cost/avaiability at Orta station;perhaps you could ask your hotel.

Buses are not very aimed at tourists in that area, and tehre are not many alternatives (even the bus from Malpensa seems to have been discontinued).

Flying to Malpensa takes one less transfer, as there are direct buses to Novara Stazione FS for the train. http://www.stnnet.it/novaramalpensa.html

Thanks - that makes much more sense! I assume that the buses from Malpensa to Novara run to the same schedule on a Sunday as, depending on flights, this could be our day of travel.
