We are confused with the train schedule. We are going to leave Zurich and go to Stresa - the schedule shows we get to Stresa and then go on to Stresa NLM. What is the difference? Are there 2 towns? We are actually going to Isola Pescatori so we know we will have to take a boat from Stresa but didnt understand the 2 stops. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
Stresa NLM is the boat landing pier, a good 10 mins walk from the station. For schedules, go to
and just indicate Stresa as final destination. You will get at least two trains each hour with change in Brig, average travel time a little more than 3 hrs.
Yep, sounds right. NLM means "Navigazione Lago Maggiore", the transport company for boats on Lago Maggiore, Como, and Garda. And, yes, on the map, the dock appears to be a one kilometer walk on foot from the station...
