How to get to this self catering, Lake Como villa.

Fly & Drive.

The easiest way to reach Villa Rustica is to fly to one of the three Milan airports (Malpensa - MXP, Linate - LIN, Bergamo - BGY) and hire a car.  Depending on traffic, the three airports are between a 1 ½ hr and 2 hr drive from the villa, Bergamo usually being the quickest. 

Bringing or hiring a Sat Nav is a good idea if you’d like to take a slower but more scenic route up the west side of the lake from Malpensa or a faster route from all airports up the east side of the lake.  You can stock up on supplies on the way at the Iperal supermarket in Piantedo.

Link: Malpensa T1/T2 & Linate Airport

Link: Bergamo (Orio al Serio) Airport

Link: iperal Fuentes (Piantedo) supermarket

Plane & Train.

Due to the location of this Lake Como villa, we do recommend a car, if only to venture out to do some shopping.  If you don’t have a car, then you can take a bus from each of the airports to Milan Central Station and then take a direct train to Colico which is a 15 minute drive from the house.  The direct train takes an hour and a half.  Door to door it takes about four hours from Malpensa Airport to the house if you take a bus and then the train to Colico.  Alternative train routes are available from Malpensa.

Link: Trenitalia (Italian railway)

Plane, Train & Ferry.

If you would like to see Lake Como on your way, then you can take a train from Milan Central or from Malpensa Airport to Como Nord Lago with a change at Saronno.  Then take the hydrofoil ferry to Colico.  This picturesque route takes about four hours from Malpensa Airport, but you are a little more restricted by the ferry times.
