Or you can get to Como by train from Milan or from Switzerland and then take a bus or a boat to the Lake Como Greenway.
A great way to explore the lake area is by boat.
There are three types of boats: slow boat (battello), great for leisurely travellers and for taking photos from the outside deck; rapid-service by hydrofoil (aliscafo); and car ferry (traghetto) service in the central lake area, which also takes pedestrian passengers.
