LIN to Lake como area

It looks like Varenna and Menaggio are great choices, but we want to go directly to our town without going into Milan (which i know would be cheaper), but we will have been traveling for 20 hours or so by then. Any recommendations? or is it just too expensive to do via private transfer?

also, which town/village gives one the best opportunity to have walkable nice, restaurants nearby?

my traveling companion does not walk well on cobblestones, so am worried about varenna. Is it easy to take taxis while there? other choices?

THANKS!

Have a look at www.kiwitaxi.com for transfer to Varenna from Linate Airport. This would be one option directly from the airport.

The other option is to take the airport shuttle bus or taxi to the Milan central train station, then direct train to Varenna.

From the Varenna train station, you can take a taxi to your lodging in Varenna or transfer to ferry for Menaggio.

Menaggio is larger and has a lot of flat walking area near the lake. Both Varenna and Menaggio have nice lodgings near to the ferry(www.booking.com).

Thanks for your help. We wanted to rent an apt. so we can take small suitcases and have a washing machine! Does that change your advice?

ciao, judy
