Milan/Varenna/Bellagio/Como/Milan? Or the other way around?

Hmmm... after reading TA about this, from Milan - would a first stop to Varenna be easier for a DAY trip? I am reading that the slow ferry boat from Bellagio TO Como is better?

Hi

For a day trip I would definitely get the fast train from Milano Centrale to Como San Giovanni, and walk down to the port from the station, taking in Piazza Volta and Piazza Duomo. Then take the slow boat up as far as Bellagio. From Bellagio you can take the boat over to Varenna, but you may feel that you are happy just relaxing for a while in Bellagio instead (and Bellagio also gets plenty of sun in the afternoon). From Bellagio you can get the bus back to Como, which is quicker and cheaper than the boat. You could have an early dinner in Como and get the train back to Milan - a really good day out!

From Bellagio, continue onward to Varenna and return to Milano via Varenna.

Yes, I would do it the other way around and return by train to Milano from Varenna.
