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

It's a fun way of getting along the lake side, a lot easier than walking, especially as there is no footpath at times and though very "touristy", it is an interesting trip. Costs are reasonable, 8 euros for a return trip.

A good way to see Lenno and Menaggio a round trip costs 8euros. The two towns are very pretty so well worth the trip ,however, the seats are wooden and quite uncomfortable the Trombetta on Bellagio has cushion seating far more comfortable.

We used it as a great way to get to Lenno - and it proved useful as the wind on the Lake made boat transport impossible. Great views and I'm amazed at how they drive these things on narrow Italian roads.

The train runs from Lenno to Menagghio. The map is on all the stops which are fairly frequent.
