How to get there
Casa Blevio is located in the tranquil village of Blevio, which is part of the Province of Como in the Italian region of Lombardy.
From Como, Blevio is best reached by car (a four-minute journey), taxi or bus (from the main bus station in Como).
Our agent is often able to provide transport from and to the main train stations in Como, allowing you to rely on public transport for the duration of your stay. This can be a good option if you are not a confident driver. Alternatively, if you are keen to explore the Lake fully, and perhaps have more than a few days in Blevio, we would recommend that you consider hiring a car during your time. You can park on the street near the property without charge.
In terms of public transport options, the main bus-stop is just a few minutes' walk from Casa Blevio, and many of our guests have recommended a weekly bus ticket as the most cost-effective way of getting around. There are also a boat service which departs three times daily from Blevio, or a more regular service from Torno (a 25 minute walk). There is also the more expensive option of taxis.
HOW TO GET TO COMO
The nearest airports to Como are: Milan Malpensa (the nearest), Milan Linate, and Bergamo's Orio al Serio. British airways, Alitalia and Easyjet fly to Milan Malpensa and Linate airports. Ryanair flies to Orio al Serio.
From Milan Malpensa:
By car: a 40-60 minute drive. Take the A336 to the A8, following directions for Milan before taking the A9 towards Como and Switzerland. Exit at Como.
By public transport:
Take the Malpensa Express train straight from the airport to Saronno and change for Como.
Follow the signs for the Malpena Express, which is located in Terminal 1. You need the train that stops in Saronno (this should be the first stop, but they will announce it). At Saronno, you should get out, and then change onto a train for Como. If you need to ask anyone, the easiest way is to just say: "per Saronno?" and "per Como", which is like saying "how do I get to ...?"
The Malpensa Express train timetable is here:
(the trains that stop at Saronno leave at 53 minutes past every hour). This journey will only take 9 minutes.
The trains from Saronno to Como run every 30-60 minutes. Your stop will be "Como Lago", which is the last stop. There should be a couple of other stops in Como ("Como Camerlata", "Como Borghi") before, but just stay on the train until the end of the line. The journey should take 40 minutes. The timetable for Saronno-Como is here:
To come back, trains depart the same "Como Lago" station. Again, you get out at Saronno after 40 minutes. Trains leave Saronno for Malpensa at 16 and 46 minutes past the hour, and take you to Malpensa Terminal 1.
From the station, you can to the centre of Como.
Alternatively there is a coach service that departs three times daily from Terminals 1 and 2, or you can negotiate with private coach companies outside the airport.
From Milan Linate
By car: a 1 hour drive. Take the A1 towards Monza, then the A4 (West), then join the A9 (North) towards Switzerland and Como
By public transport: There is a bus service to Milan from the aiport. The bus arrives at San Babila tube station. From there you can go to either Stazione Centrale or Stazione Cadorna by tube and then take a train for Como. A taxi from the airport to Milan centre costs Euro12-18.
From Bergamo Orio al Serio
By car: A 1-1.5 hour drive. There is a toll road which takes you to Como from Bergamo.
