My wife has managed to get five days off work and will join me in Italy. I have her flying out of Malpensa in mid-September, and before that I'd like to spend a couple of romantic days on Lake Como. I see that the city of Como is the closest to Malpensa, but the reviews say that it does not have the best views or accommodations. I'm thinking of staying up the lake a bit on the west side, at Argegno or Nesso, where the nightly rates are about an eighth to a quarter of those in Bellagio. Her flight goes out at 11:20 am. I'm wondering what the best way to get to the airport is, and how much time to allow. Should I get her a car straight from the hotel, but I'm sure that will be $$$? Or take a fast ferry (if there is one) to Como and get a taxi from there. I've never been to Como, so any suggestions welcome, along with advice on transport.
