What is the frequency of ferries betw Varenna and Bellagio?

<<Apologies if I have doubled up with this posting but I had no response when I tacked it on to the end of someone else's post>>

We will be coming from Verona to Bellagio (mid June). Doing a dummy booking on Trenitalia it seems there are trains that go from Verona to Varenna (with a change in Milan Central). The train gets into Varenna at either 11.23AM or 1.23 PM. How frequently do the ferries from Varenna to Bellagio go? I am finding it difficult to interpret the ferry timetable, and the latest one goes only as far as March 2012. Just an indication of frequency of the ferries would be helpful, at this stage.

The .pdf timetable looks self-explanatory: www.navlaghi.it/c_download/NLC_Traghetto.pdf

Summer timetables will be uploaded in due course, and departures should be more frequent (although according to the local press, public transport cuts could affect also this service, so I wouldn't rule out at this stage that services remain more or less as they are now).

It has been a while, but we were in Varenna in October, a few years ago. We used the ferries several times. In mid-day I recall that the ferries were pretty regular, I think perhaps hourly or so.

Ferries run each day from early morning till late evening, about each 30 minutes.

It takes about 10 minutes to cross the lake.

When you'll be in Varenna, you need reach the fery dock (10 minutes by foot) and take the first course to Bellagio

Thank you all for these comments. As we have to change trains in Milan anyway, (as we are coming from Verona) would it be more time-effective to get a train to Como and then take the hydrofoil? I appreciate the answers, thanks.

Also, thank you for the link to the timetable - I was looking at another document which was very hard to understand. The link FF sent is much easier to work from.
