You can also travel to Zurich, Switzerland from this station or even take a direct train down to Florence in Tuscany.
Outside the front entrance of San Giovanni Train Station, you can find local buses; C10 or C20 , that will take you to the western branch of Lake Como; Argegno, Tremezzo, Cadenabbia, Menaggio and as far round as Colico at the north of the Lake.
The C10 bus mainly follows along the lakeside but at some points it bypasses some of the smaller lakeside villages and climbs uphill onto a main road. This is the recommended bus to take if you are trying to reach any of the lakeside villages between Como and Colico.
The C20 bus takes the more panoramic route and turns off to the left just as it is passing through the town of Argegno and climbs uphill into the Val d’Intelvi.
