Getting Around

Thanks to its central position, its main ferry links and bus connections, Menaggio is well connected with public transport.

By Bus

The public bus service is managed by the ASF bus company. All buses stop and depart from Piazza Roma where there is the bus depot. Bus tickets must be bought before boarding the bus either at the bus depot in Piazza Roma (there is also a ticket machine) or at the newsagent’s in Via Calvi.

The C10 bus line of the ASF bus company connects Menaggio with all the towns on the west side of the lake.
From Menaggio departs the C12 bus line to Porlezza on lake Lugano and to the town Lugano in Switzerland, just 27 km from Menaggio.
The C13 bus line connects Menaggio with Plesio and Breglia, a great starting point for mountain hikes.

At the bus depot you can buy a day ticket for 10 euro that allows you to travel all day on the extra-urban bus lines excluding the stretch Oria – Lugano.
There is also a day ticket for the stretch between Menaggio and Argegno at a cost of 6 euro.

By Boat

From Menaggio the historic boats leave for a pleasant cruise over the lake to the famous towns of the lake. There is also a car ferry service that connects Menaggio with Varenna and Bellagio. Attention! The pier of the carferry service at Bellagio due to works remains closed until March 2024. Who wants to move quickly can use the hydrofoils that stop at the main towns around the lake. We recommend the day tickets that allow you to use boats as well as the ferries and visit more than one town with the same ticket. You may travel on the hydrofoils with this type of ticket but this implies paying a supplement. The central lake ticket for example includes Menaggio, Varenna, Bellagio, Cadenabbia, Tremezzo and Lenno. You can buy tickets at the Navigazioni Lago di Como ticket offices at the local boat landings.

Menaggio is not connected to the railway line – the closest station is at Varenna that is situated on the other side of the lake exactly opposite from Menaggio. For times see Ferrovie Trenord. At Como there is the FS station San Giovanni or the Como Lago Nord station.
