Welcome to John's
 Swiss and Italian paddle steamer Timetables 
This is an unofficial site
(Always check locally before booking for any future sailing)



A correction..........

The engine controls looking immaculate     photo: Markus Graf
        Earlier in the week,  this website
incorrectly stated "PS La Suisse" had
broken down
- this was based on information
received from a usually very reliable source

    I am happy to report that Markus
Graf (Chief steam mechanic CGN
Lausanne) has confirmed that was
NOT the case --- in fact it was just a routine mid-season service for the ship
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    With the very busy "Fête des
Vignerons" period about to start..........
.........this was a very sensible precaution to take

Tuesday and Wednesday 16th and 17th July 2019

PS Concordia  (Lake Como)

It is understood the paddle steamer had to be summoned
from the dock to cover a Como-Colico and return working
on both days vice a broken down motor vessel

Can you confirm (or advise oltherwise) which sailings
she opereted and which motor vessel had broken down ?
Any photos would be welcome to add to this website

 (much later than usual)
She is now expecteed to continue these sailings for the remainder
of the Peak Summer period

A motor vessel was observed departing Limone on the first sailing 51 of the day
- which suggests the MPV actually commenced service from Brenzone at 0950
Can you confirm or advise otherwise ?
