Taking a coach tour  to Lake Como might just be the ideal way to travel.  Similar to that of rail travel but this time, you don’t even have to think about doing anything at all, not even changing buses. Many coach tours will  have a planned itinerary and some such as Shearings Coach company offer all inclusive holidays staying at the Hotel Britannia Excelsior in Cadenabbia in Lake Como. There are often very good deals on these combined coach/accommodation tours sometimes with prices starting from around £250.  It will maybe take longer to reach your destination, but just think of all the places you will have visited in just one trip! Nowadays coaches are well equipped with just about every possible amenity; dvd and cd players, air-conditioning, toilets, microwave and many buses have seats that can extend into the isle giving you more leg room. However if you just want a relaxing way to travel, but want to get their fast without as many stops have a look at the Nationalexpress website.  It may be the case that you have to combine coach and rail.
