Bellagio to Sorrento

Jump to last reply

Hi All.

Now that I have finalised my itinerary, I have a few specific questions. Firstly, we (DH, me and 6 yr old child) are travelling from Bellagio to Sorrento ... and I am considering the best way.

Option A - Flight
- Easyjet fly from Malpensa - Naples on the day we require.
flight is at 11.40 - arrives 13.05, and the cost is around €150
- Getting from Bellagio to Malpensa is fairly difficult, so the best for us is either
fly-to-lake shuttle at €105 or a taxi at €130 - takes roughly 2 hrs.
- from Naples, the Curreri bus goes from the airport to Sorrento for €30.

Cost - roughly €310 door to door
time - (allowing wait at airport) - roughly 8 hrs

Option B - train
- timing
ferry to Varenna (30 mins), train to Milano Centrale (1 hr), train to Naples (4hrs 20 mins), then Circumsuviana to Sorrento (45 mins) .... plus transfer times. Will make it roughly 8 hrs still

- cost
train (mini fare) is roughly the same as flying, but no expensive taxi from Bellagio as getting to Milano Centrale is much easier than Malpensa ..... BUT I am a bit unsure about getting the Circumsuviana to Sorrento with luggage and 6 yr old in tow ... so may need expensive taxi/transfer to Sorrento.

so - timing roughly the same. Costs probably roughly the same as well

What would you do?
Any other options I havent thought of?
