Peoples - I need your help again. I thought I had my holiday mapped, planned and waiting in a folder but I have fallen out with our car hire firm and am thinking of changing from car travel to train travel.After our recent holiday in Umbria, Hertz decided to take another 60 euros from our credit card on our return home even though we had not had an accident and noone had bothered to take us to our car on either arrival or departure. I have tried arguing with them but you know what these companies are like - you are on a hiding to nothing.
so at a serious risk off cutting my nose off to spite my face should I tell Hertz to naff off this time or just give them more of my cash for SCDW. (mmmm. a company rips you off - what do you do? give them more money!)
We are 2 nights at Bellagio, 2 nights at Como and 3 nights at Stresa (well Isloa Pescatore)
I have been on Trenitalia and I can see that Bergamo to como is about 1 hours 30 mins on train. Is it then easy enough to get from train station to the ferry station to get to Bellagio?
Como to Stresa is about 2hours 20 and then Stresa to Bergamo is about 2hours 40. Both these journeys change at Milano Centrale - has anyone ever done this? is is stressful?
It certainly seems an option worth considering, Having read about what the lake roads are like, how extortionate Parking fees are at hotels (when did this tax become legal by the way?),plus savings on tolls and petrol. But would we then spend half our holiday waiting for trains and ferries?
Hope you can help. You have a week to get your answers in! Thanks
