help - Milan to Como/Bellagio?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are flying to Milan from the US, then taking the train to Nice for 5 nights Friday-Wednesday (july 17-22). We plan to return to Milan by train Wednesday late afternoon/early evening, and then have our flights back to the US on Friday morning July 24, 7am.

The (ambitious) thought was to try to rent a car in Milan near the train, then to drive & visit/stay in Como/bellagio from Wednesday evening, having the entire day Thursday, then leaving extremely early Friday (3/4 am) to make it back to Malpensa for our 7am flights.

* Is it possible to rent a car near the train station in Milan, and return it to the airport when we drive back Friday early am without extremely high extra fees? Which rental car companies should we try?

* What time should we aim to return to Malpensa for our return flights (international) - is 5am ok? What time would this mean to leave Como/bellagio? About one hour for the drive?

Other creative ideas for the time after Nice, if this is too crazy an adventure?...

thanks,

Stephen
