Lake Como to Bologna

We are staying in Pognana Lario for a week at the end of May and want to head to Bologna for a few days afterwards. Is it possible to take a ferry to Varenna and then a train to Bologna from Varenna?

The simpler thing to do would be to go south to the town of Como, and from there take a train to Milano Centrale, where you switch to one for Bologna. I am uncertain whether it is best to take a bus, a ferry or a taxi from Pognana Lario to the town of Como, but if you have lodgings lined up, the owners should be able to tell you.

It might be possible that you can take a ferry to Varenna if you would prefer the long ride on the lake, and wouldn't mind carrying your luggage uphill from the ferry docks to the train station. Plus, you would have a much longer train ride to Milano Centrale, where you need to go to catch a train to Bologna. Again, I would think the owners of your lodgings would be able to direct you to your public transportations options from Pognana Lario to Varenna if this is what you want to do.
