Getting to Lake Como from Geneva

Can anyone advise the best way to get from Geneva to Lake Como (We are staying in Blevio). I would like to go via train. Need to know what the closest station is and best route. Thanks.

From CH-Geneve train to Milano Centrale and then train to Como San Giovanni (line Como-Chiasso-Lugano)

The same from I-Genoa (=Genova).

However you cannot buy tickets for this particular journey online from Trenitalia, as if you do they must be collected from ticket machines in Italian train stations.

Buy from http://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html as their tickets can be collected in Swiss train stations. Simply enter Geneva and Como S. Giovanni into the website.

Thank you all for your responses. Does anyone know the approximate amount of time the journey takes and how many train changes it requires?

Why not just click http://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html and find out yourself in a few moments? The precise time will depend on your departure time.

The minimum number of changes is one.
