How to get there
It is important to note that access to the house by car is limited to four wheel drive vehicles (4WD) only due to the steep track and there is parking for up to 3 vehicles at the house free of charge. Parking is also available free of charge a 2 minute walk from the house and on arrival and departure your luggage will be transported to and from the house for you. For more information visit Villa Rustica Lake Como.
Fly & Drive:
The easiest way to reach Villa Rustica is to fly to one of the three Milan airports (Malpensa - MXP, Linate - LIN, Bergamo - BGY) and hire a car. Depending on traffic, the three airports are between a 1 ½ hr and 2 hr drive from the villa, Bergamo usually being the quickest. Bringing or hiring a Sat Nav is a good idea if you'd like to take a slower but more scenic route up the west side of the lake from Malpensa or a faster route from all airports up the east side of the lake. You can stock up on supplies on the way at the Iperal supermarket in Piantedo.
Plane & Train:
Due to the location of this Lake Como villa, we do recommend a car, if only to venture out to do some shopping. If you don't have a car, then you can take a bus from each of the airports to Milan Central Station and then take a direct train to Colico which is a 15 minute drive from the house. The direct train takes an hour and a half. Door to door it takes about four hours from Malpensa Airport to the house if you take a bus and then the train to Colico. Alternative train routes are available from Malpensa.
Plane, Train & Ferry.
If you would like to see Lake Como on your way, then you can take a train from Milan Central or from Malpensa Airport to Como Nord Lago with a change at Saronno. Then take the hydrofoil ferry to Colico. This picturesque route takes about four hours from Malpensa Airport, but you are a little more restricted by the ferry times.
