San Giulio Orta

Looking to travel from San Giulio Orta to Lacarno. Which is the best way? Is the rail more picturesque and faster then a hydrofoil up Lake Maggiore from Stresa.

They're scenic in different ways.

But the train will be probably be easier, as it has only one change using the best route which has a change of train in Domodossola and a total journey time of around four hours at the best departure times from Orta-Miasino station. From Domodossola, this route takes you on a spectacular mountain railway over the Alps http://www.centovalli.ch/?lang=EN

To get the boat you have to get to Stresa which requires a change of train from Orta-Miasino and a journey time of nearly two hours. Boat times are here http://www.navlaghi.it/eng/m_orari.asp

Thank you for your reply to my post. Does a bus travel along the lake road to Logarno from either Stresa or San Giulio area, and would this be much easier.
