8.30 departure, 95 bus, Metro to Cadorna. Train to Lake Como about 65 minutes. 3 things planned, Cathredral, Finicular up the side of Como and Ferry to Bellagio. 2 out of three isn't bad considering it turned out to be a 12 day and nearly overnighting somewhere on the lake. Had a good plan - round trip ferry ticket Como to Bellagio to Lecco then bus from Lecco to Como.
2+ hour ferry from Como to Bellagio. Told to switch ferries. Ferry from Como arrives late. Ok 2.5 hours to poke around the very lovely Bellagio (George Clooney's place) and then ferry to Lecco. There are two Gerry stations 5 minute walk between. We were sent back and forth several times between the two and eventually departed. However the ferry went back to Como not to Lecco. Fortunately arrived just in time to catch a late train to Milano.
We were on a three course lunch time cruise with tablecloths etc. actually very good and reasonably priced. You can hear the chatter of diners in the background of the movies.
