By Air

The nearest major Air Terminal for Argegno is Milano Malpensa International Airport and more recently Bergamo Airport. To arrive from Malpensa or Bergamo you should ideally hire a car or alternatively take the airport shuttle bus to Milan and then a train to Argegno itself. Driving from Malpensa or Bergamo to Argegno should take around 1 hour depending on the traffic. Air travel can be quite inexpensive these days and its will pay to check out the cheap carriers for special deals. For UK flights, Stansted, Bristol, Glasgow can provide cheap and convenient flights for that special break.

By Road

From Malpensa take the A336 to the A8, take the Milan direction then head off on the A9 toward Como and Switzerland. Take the Lomazzo exit and head toward Lecco on the SS35 and then the SS36. Turn off this autostrada to Argegno and Mandello. Distance is approximately 107Km.

From Linate, take the A1 toward Monza, then the A4, West, then join the A9 North toward Switzerland and Como. Follow the same directions as above, but distance is approx. 80km.

From Bergamo, take the SS342, North West toward Lecco, then join the SS36 and turn off this autostrada to Argegno and Mandello. Distance is approximately 55Km.

Three times a day there is a direct bus from Malpensa airport to Como:
Dep 8:30 & Arrive 9:42
Dep 13:00 & Arrive 14:12
Dep 19:30 & Arrive 20:42

Lake Como can also be approached from Switzerland through San Bernadino or Splugenplass and then along the lake roads, or can be approached through Chiasso, after going through the San Gotthard tunnel. This Swiss border is only a couple of miles from Como city.
We suggest you study the map carefully, the route is very simple and Como city is just before the Swiss border. There are tolls however and a few Euros may be necessary to navigate them. Italian drivers are famous for their casual approach, this combined with the narrow dual carriageways and link roads means care needs taking at all times.

Getting Around Lake Como
Steamers, boats and buses all serve the lake with good connections to towns and villages all over Lake Como. A frequent boat service. The frequency of the services increases in peak season i.e. from May to September but also operates in the winter months. A less frequent but faster boat travels the full length of the lake from Como (with stops at most of the above). Buses run approximately hourly all the way up the west coast from Como round to Colico at the north-east point. Argegno is very fortunate in that it has both passenger and Car ferry available. You may also want to hire your own boat and sail around the lake. Try this link for boats which can be hired from Pianello del Lario
Walking

This is by far the best way to see Argegno and Lake Como. Roam the old streets, do some serious shopping, hike up the local hills and you can relax in the cafes or dine in a traditional Italian restaurant with local wines and produce. Take the Ferry!!
