Malpensa to Como by Train

Jump to last reply

Why pay a fortune to travel by taxi from Malpensa Airport to Lake Como when there is daily train service every 30 minutes? Here's how it works:

At the Malpensa Train Station, board the Malpensa Express Train (which goes all the way to Milano Cadorna Station), but get off at SARONNO Station. Departures every 30 minutes, 20 minutes travel time and ticket costs 5.00 Euros.

At the SARONNO Station, transfer to the Ferrovie Nord regional train direct to Como Nord Laghi (last stop). Departures every 30-60 minutes, 40 minutes travel time and ticket costs 1.95 Euros in second class or 2.95 Euros in first class. You purchase TWO tickets at Malpensa Airport.

At the Como Nord Laghi Train Station, walk across the square to the SPT Como Bus Terminal, where there are hourly busses to both Menaggio on the western shore, and Bellagio in the center promontory.

Alternatively, you can also walk to the boat dock, and take a hydrofoil or ferry to many points on the Lake. However, the busses are more frequent and much cheaper.

Thus, Malpensa to Como City is a mere 6.95 Euros by train, a mere fraction of the cost of a taxi.

SPT Como also has a direct airporter bus to Como City from Malpensa, but departures are only at 8:30, 13:30 and 18:30 daily. A one way ticket is 13 Euros. At Como City, you can connect to the local busses up the Lake.
