You can drive, take a train or bus, or fly to Baveno (or even come by boat down Lago Maggiore from Switzerland for something a little different!)
FLY TO MILAN MALPENSA AIRPORT
If you are flying in we strongly recommend that you fly into Milan Malpensa (MXP) airport. Malpensa is much closer to Baveno than any other Milan airport, and takes <1 hour on public transport. Milan Linate Airport or Milan Orio al Serio Airport are much further away and the travel connections may take you several hours to negotiate.
MILAN MALPENSA AIRPORT (MXP) is strongly recommended to you. It is about 35 km from Baveno, and has very wide connections within Europe and to the rest of the world flight connections can be found here.
BUS FROM MILAN MAPENSA TO BAVENO
The regular SAF bus to Baveno is the cheapest option.
The service takes 1 hour to Baveno and will drop you within a few hundred yards of the Grand Hotel Dino.
Departs from: Terminal 1 Exit 2/3 stop 6
For more details, see this website or telephone SAF +39.0323.552172. This service can be booked by telephone or the form on the website by 11.00 am the day before the departure.

TRAIN AND TAXI FROM MILAN MALPENSA TO BAVENO
HIRE A PRIVATE CAR
Alternatively, if you like to arrange a private car/group van (with driver) we suggest to use the following service at Lagomaggiore Transfer
From here you can either:
- travel to Malpensa airport by bus (>1 hour) and take the bus from there to Baveno (as above under MXP airport)
- Or a taxi (10 minutes) or a bus to Milan Central train station (see here for details) and from there the best 2 options are the following: 1) take the Malpensa Express train to Malpensa airport (about 1 hour): timetable at Malpensa Express (you could buy the ticket online ahead of time) and take the bus from there to Baveno (as above for the MXP airport); or 2) take a train to Stresa (about 1 hour, search here for the train timetable, you could buy the ticket online ahead of time) and then a taxi to Baveno (around 5 minutes).
MILAN ORIO AL SERIO/BERGAMO AIRPORT (BGY) is about 130 Km far away from Baveno but on the opposite side of Milan.
From there you could take directly a bus (you could buy the ticket directly on the buses and there are several options just outside of the Arrival, with RyanAir you could by the ticket also on the plane or at the starting airport) to Milan Central train station (> 1 hour) and from there the best 2 options are the following:
