Lake Como toward the Mountains - Day Trip Driver? Train?

Jump to last reply

Our original plan was to spend a few nights in the Dolomiti but plans changed and more days were added to Tuscany. Can't get it out of our heads though and am wondering if there is any way at all to get to a worthy destination further in the mountains on a DAY trip from Lake Como. I'm ever the optimist, but I find that there are many reasons why I don't think this work:
1) We're staying on the west side of the lake in Menaggio, making it even farther.
2) We'll have no rental car until a few days after. We were willing to rent the car around Lake Como but the only rentals appear to be south in Como itself. Don't really want to backtrack.
3) I can find no information on any tours or drivers that go east from LC.
4) Using Google's "Orange Man Walking" makes it quite clear why it's over four hours on the "straight" shot east from Varenna to Bolzano.
5) Trains appear to run North / South only.

Any thoughts? And if trying to get anywhere near the Dolomites is impossible in a day, are there other recommendations for a train/bus/driver day trip? Need to keep it to the east or the northeast as we're coming from ZRH through Lugano and headed south after Lake Como. For instance, is St Moritz worth seeing to three 50 year old ladies in September and on a budget? Many thanks for any ideas.
