I paid 16 Euro for 2 return tickets on this bone shaker, from Menaggio to St Lorrenzo Church. I stated my required destination to the driver. The train failed to stop at the Church and carried on to Lenno, where we made the return journey and this time the train did stop at St Lorrenzo. After visiting the Church, we walked to Villa Calletta and visited the museum and gardens. We returned to the train stop at 5 minutes past the hour, in readiness for the 12 minutes past train to see it passing by. The driver was obviously in a hurry to be back in Menaggio for his lunch, so he could have an extended break. As the train would not be around again for over One and a half hours, we walked the 3 km back to Menaggio in the blistering heat. It could have been OK if the timetable had been observed.

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.

Basically a drive along a road for a short distance to lenno. My daughter loved it. I thought it was expensive for what you get and you only can get off once unless you pay for the more expensive ticket. Our driver was not very helpful and pointed out a few buildings (she obviously didn't want to strain her voice across the tannoy). Not a great tour.
