We were staying in Cadennabia, so the train was an ideal way to get to all the attractions between Lenno and Menaggio. We spent a full day visiting all of the villages, with a longer stop for lunch in Mennagio. A whole day ticket gave...More

The ride itself is ok comfortable and fun. However, we were left stranded around 5 km from our hotel at night, simply because it had slightly rained for 10 min few hours prior. We had bought return tickets (8 euro/person) from Gabenabbia to Menaggio and...More
