Bellagio to Lugano

We are spending 3 days in Bellagio mid next year, and friends have suggested a side trip to Lugano in Switzerland. What would be the quickest way to get there, and is it worth the effort and valuable travelling time??? We were going to either head back to Milan for 2 days, then onto Venice. Adding this trip to Lugano may set us behind elsewhere, but if it is worth the visit, I am definitely open to re organizing our timetable. Any info or feedback would be appreciated.

Hallo, it will be a pleasure for us if you will visit our region!

From Bellagio there are regularly ferries to Menaggio where you can take the C12 bus line to Lugano (1 hour journey). On the following link you can find the schedule (pay attention to the winter / summer times): sptlinea.it/it-it/…extraurbanalago.aspx

In Lugano there are a lot of interesting and attractive activities:

- a charming historical pedestrian area; nice and various city parks

- different mountains on which you can ride up by funicular or cable car and enjoy the amazing views

- rides by boat on our beautiful lake with visits of the typical villages along the coasts

These are just some of the several activities that our region propose, we suggest you to have a look to our web site where you can find more information and a regularly updated events calendar: luganoturismo.ch/en/…tourist-information.aspx

It's also a pleasure to inform that form Lugano you can reach Milano in about 1 hour train. From the Lugano train station there are daily and frequently trains to Milano Centrale or Milano Porta Garibaldi.

If you will decide to visit us we will be glad to help you in our information office, just behind the main square Piazza Riforma: http://map.search.ch/d/dk5ywjhnt.html

Best regards
