www.ryanair.com fly Manchester to Bergamo*

You can take a Bergamo airport shuttle bus to Milan Central station, or a Bergamo airport shuttle bus to Bergamo train station.

Trains from Bergamo and Milan to Como San Giovanni, or Varenna Lake Como, and to Stresa Lake Maggiore

www.trenitalia.com Click on the UK flag for current train times.

* Flying Ryanair check in online and note the luggage restrictions.

Como - Orio al Seria (Bergamo)

Maggiore - Malpensa (Milan)

Both - Linate (Milan) is a possibility also.

Hi, Linate is probably the best airport because it's nearer Central milan where you can get a train to any of the areas.

I agree that Linate is probably best. Another thing to take into consideration is the timing of the flights. I've booked flights for the same as last year - that is a morning flight to Linate and an evening one from Malpensa.

Unfortunately the flights to Linate appear to be only from London airports. From the north of England Flybe have flights from Manchester to Malpensa or Ryanair fly to Milan Bergamo from Manchester and Leeds/Bradford and also from Birmingham and East Midlands.
