Mennagio to Lugano (3 questions)?

We're staying at the Grand Hotel Mennagio in July and would like to visit Lugano.

1. Is it easier to take the train then to drive?
2. How long is the ride?
3. Are most of the sights for a day visit within walking distance?

55 minutes by bus from Menaggio to Lugano (bring your passport!).

www.sptlinea.it, click on Orari and Linnee Extraurbanee. Line C12.

There is no direct rail service between these two towns.

If you have a car then the drive is simple--about an hour. The bus is the only other option. Yes, it is worth your time. I love Lugano ! You can also drive as far as Porlezza and take the local ferry boat into Lugano, stopping at all of the villages on the Lake. Do not miss the funicular up to the top of Mt. Bre for great vistas.

I took the SPT bus from Lugano to Menaggio. It's a very nice, comfortable and inexpensive ride which takes about one hour. The bus takes you to the main square in Menaggio, a five minute walk from the Grand Hotel Menaggio. Check schedules at sptcomo.it, since departures are not quite hourly (with fewer on Sundays), at irregular times.
