Bellagio to Venice by train

Jump to last reply

I'd appreciate advice on how to get from Bellagio to Venice by train. Would it be better to go from Bellagio - Varenna - Milan Centrale - Venice, OR, Bellagio - Como - Milan Centrale - Venice. I will be travelling at the end of June 2012 and would like the most hassle free way of travel (2 adults and 1 child). I try to enter ''Varenna to Venice'' on the trenitalia website as well as trenord.it website, but somehow they don't even have Varenna as one of the station choices - so I'm wondering if it's perhaps such a small station, that only slow trains travel to and from it, therefore, does not allow pre-booking? The Como to Venice route sounds ok, but I understand from reading past threads that the ferry ride from Bellagio to Como is a long one (about an hour?), whereas to go from Bellagio to Varenna, it is only about 15 mins? I plan to travel on a Wednesday, hoping to get to Venice by early afternoon.
Also, is it worth booking the tickets for this whole trip, or is it something that I can just stroll up to the train station on the day and ask for a ticket to Venice? Appreciate any advice regarding this. Thanks in advance!
