Bellagio to Venice

We will be in Bellagio in mid-September; from Bellagio we will go on to Venice. I am wondering if there is an alternative way to go from Bellagio to Venice other than the train route that goes from Como to Milan to Venice? Are there suitable buses or car services (not car rentals)?

Thanks to all to any who consider this question.

There's a bus from Bellagio to Como but not from there to Venice. As an alternative to starting from Como, you can take the train from Varenna, but either way you have to change in Milan. You CAN take a bus from Milan to Padova and from there to Venice, but I think it takes about 5 hours so it would be much better by train. There are plenty of chauffeur-driven car services, ask for a quote from,, (or ask for local advice, someone in your hotel may know someone...).

I suggest train.
The area around Milan is the most chaotic that you can find in Italy.
Jam traffic is killing everybody.
Consider that Venice train station is a perfect location to reach easely dowtown:
from the train you take the "vaporetto" boat and go directly to "Piazza San Marco" by "Canal Grande".
it is very comfortable, you have only to be careful to the pickpockets that are waiting for the tourists :)
