Milan Malpensa Airport to Lake Como (Mandello Del Lario???

Hi I am travelling to Madello Del Lario in August with my partner for 4 days. We fly to Milan Malpensa and wondered the best way to get to this destination?

We would prefer a train but would be happy to rent a car if it makes it easier. We also wanted to visit Verona for the day.

Are the train links straight forward?

Any help and tips on this will be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance :)

Although I just looked on website trentitalia for trains and there seems to be alot of changes. Especially from mandello del lario to Verona (about 4/5 changes) and a duration of 3-4 hours plus! Is this correct? Perhaps renting a car is a better choice?

Thanks

I don't know how you're seeing four or five changes. www.trenitalia.com shows either two or three changes between Mendello del Lario and Verona Porta Nuova (Verona's main station), and many connections under three hours (though not much under). Just choose one of the connections with two changes, at Lecco and Milano Centrale

Or choose the one daily connection with only one change, the 06.59 departure, at a cost of only €12.05 taking three hours.

If you rent a car, you'll have to rent it in Lecco. It'll probably take at least 30 minutes to pick up the car, then it's a 2.5 hour drive costing around €25 in fuel and tolls, plus the rental charge. Typical train times from Lecco to Verona are around 2.5 hours.

However if you already had a car in Mandello del Lariio, going to Verona by car would be easier.
