Murren to Varenna by train logistics

Jump to last reply

I can't decide which routing offers the best scenery from the train: the route via Lucerne to Lugano (5:41 hrs) and then taxi to the Lugano bus station for the bus to Menaggio and ferry to Varenna OR the more direct , train-only route via Brig /Domodossola to Milan and on to Varenna. My gut tells me the Lugano route is much more scenic but high on the hassle factor of trains, taxi to bus bus to ferry versus all train on a much less scenic route via Brig and Milan direct to Varenna.

Anyone out there with thoughts? Our day of travel will be on Sunday, Sept 8th. Likely on a 7 am departure train from Murren regardless of route choice.

Thanks
