Travel from Varenna to Orta San Giulio

We will be visiting the Italian lakes in early June for 4-6 days and need advice on where best to stay. We are considering both Varenna on Lake Como and Orta San Giulio.

If we stay in Varenna, how much time will it take to travel to Orta San Giulio for the day by public transport? We will not have a car.

Thank you

The nearest train station to Orta San Giulio is called Orta-Miasino.

On the Trenitalia website, enter Varenna-Esino to Orta-Miasino and your 'hour' of departure, e.g. '8' for 08.00, and you will see that a day trip from Varenna is impractical because of the journey time.
