How to get from Bellagio to Como San Giovanni Station early

Help on how to get to Como San Giovanni for a 7.53am train on the 13th October from Bellagio. I am reading there is a bus but its an hour journey or the hydrofoil. Does the hydrofoil go early enough in the morning to get us there?

Would love some advice. Also has anyone done the trip to St. Moritz from Bellagio on the Bernina Express. I have had a quote and its large but happy to do it if I know we can get to Vareena by 9.50am in the morning ? Not sure how to get there. Was thinkin we will look at going on the 11th October.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Winter timetables for the C30 bus to Como S. Giovanni are not yet available, but you'd have no problems on the summer timetable https:/… - the Hydrofoil journey would take a similar time and be more complicated, as with luggage you would need a taxi to get you from the boat to the station to be sure of making your train in time.

Getting to Varenna for 9.50 will be no problem, as the car ferries (take 15 minutes) start much earlier, though the October times are not yet online.

Don't know why you've got a large quote to get from Varenna to St Moritz. The train fares are fixed price - €7.30 each way to Tirano http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom-en then 16 CHF each way to St Moritz https://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html second class. Reservation neither necessary nor possible unless you want a seat on one of the limited number of trains with panoramic cars, in which case see https:/…bernina-express

1. Bus takes approximately 1 hr 10 mins

Timetable here - bus C30

https:/…orari-rete-extraurbana

Whether it is a bus or hydrofoil, please be aware that current timetable is only to mid Sept

www.navigazionelaghi.it/risultati.aspx…

So, do check again when it has been updated

2. Assuming this trip to Bernina express is by a travel agent? Otherwise the route is: Varenna - Tirano, Tirano - St.Moritz by different trains. And you do not have to be at Varenna by a certain time, construct your own timetable from:

www.trenitalia.com

www.sbb.ch

The trick is, there is no need for the Special tourist coaches, get a regular train (same track, same scenery)
