Rail from Luzern to Lake Como or Bellagio, Italy

Jump to last reply

We will be spending 6 days in Switzerland in September - Luzern & Interlaken area- and we depart 4 days later from Malpensa Airport, Milan. We would like to see some of Itay's Lake area.

We have only used point to point rail tickets in the past so consider us as novice rail travellers. We are planning to buy a Swiss Pass. We are trying to determine our rail path on Day 6 as we leave central Switzerland and what Lake areas we should spend our last 3 days - Lugano, Lake Como, Menaggio or Bellagio. The connections to get to Bellagio, Italy and then to Malpensa Airport are not clear to us which makes Menaggio or Como seem the easier area to visit.. Day trips from Lugano is another option. We have an early morning departure flight on Day 10 and so we want to stay near the Malpensa Airport the evening before.

Are there any suggestions on how best to spend 3 days in the Lugano or the Italian Lake area?
