I am staying in Milan, one block from Lambrate train station, which is one train stop or 4 metro stops from Milano-Centrale.
I would like to take a day trip to Lugano. However, the both Trenitalia and SBB websites keep malfunctioning when I try to buy a Milan-Lugano train ticket.
At Milano-Centrale, do I buy the ticket to Lugano from the Trenitalia ticket machine, or is there an SBB ticket machine or counter there?
Alternatively, would it be better to take a bus to Lugano?
