How to get there
Arriving in Style
For first timers to Casa Matra Ponto we recommend taking a taxi from Como San Giovanni Station (or Como a Lago) depending on your train from Milan or Bergamo.
if you fly into Linate take a local airport taxi directly to Milan Centrale Station (about €20), (or Pullman coach, about €6 per person), (or to your hotel in Milan if stopping over).
If you fly into Maplensa use the airport Pullman bus service to Milan Centrale (about €6 pp, taxi about €100).
Take the train from Bergamo Orio Al Serio to Como S. Giovanni Station (approx 1.5 - 2.5 hrs - with a change at Milano Centrale or a regional station such as Monza or Seregno).
TAXI FROM COMO TO SALA COMACINA
To be greeted upon your arrival in Como we always recommend booking a taxi with Lake Como Taxis in advance. Naturally, Gianluigi (Gigi) is also pleased to arrange airport pickup and transfer for you and your group.
To reach Sala Comacina by taxi from Como Gigi will gladly drive you along the lakeshore road (buses generally travel via the high road) if time permits. May we suggest that you request a running commentary en route (in English) pointing out the villas as you pass each along the lake: the ex-Versace Villa, Villa L’Oleandra (where George lives), Sting’s Villa, Villa Balbiano, and many others – well worth the experience if you’re on your first visit to Lake Como. The taxi journey costs about €70.
When booking a taxi please inform Gigi about your party and luggage to ensure he brings the appropriate vehicle for your group (a Mercedes mini-bus or estate-wagon for example). Gigi's e-mail responses in English are quick and efficient.
Please also advise your ETA in Milan, which you can update by mobile (handy-phone) once you actually arrive at Milan Centrale Station and again once your train departs for Como to finalise your meet and greet infront of the station. The train journey from Milan to Como takes approximately 35 minutes.
Both stations in Como have taxi ranks, but the chance of getting an English-speaking driver is rather slim, hence the suggestion to pre-book.
