Getting There & Away
Laveno is located along the SP69 near the lake's midpoint. It's a 20km drive south to Angera, and 24km southeast to Varese. Trains run every hour or so from Milan's Porta Garibaldi to Laveno-Mombello Nord station (one way €6.70, 90 minutes) – an easy stroll to the centre.
Frequent vehicle ferries connect Laveno with Intra across the lake (one way €3.40, 20 minutes). Laveno isn't on the main north-south ferry run, meaning you'll have to cross to Intra first, then catch an onward boat.
