We'll visit Bellagio in Mid-September, arriving on a Wednesday afternoon by train to Como S. Giovanni station (from Switzerland). Then return on a Saturday morning (very early) for our train connection back to Zurich.
I know that our options are the C30 bus or fast ferry. I'm leaning toward the bus option because it seems easier, cheaper, and just about the same amount of time.
When arriving into Como S. Giovanni train station, where do we buy tickets for the bus and where do we catch the bus? Do you bring luggage onto the bus with you (we'll be carrying hiker style backpacks)?
On the return, the C30 line lists two Como Stations (and a 3rd listed right after Bellagio titled S. Giovanni...to keep things confusing). I assume we'll disembark at the last Como Station, labled Stazione FS for the Como S. Giovanni train station.
If we decide to take the fast ferry back to Como, how reliable is it timing wise? We're trying to catch the earliest connection (7:36) into Zurich so we have as much time in the city that night before flying home in the morning.
