Hi Sumatik and welcome to MySwissAlps!

For a day trip from Como to Lugano you'd be looking at trains from Italy: aintickets/italy

The Arcobaleno card is for local travel in Ticino, which would probably make it easier for your parents once they are there: iglietti/carta-giornaliera

However it does not fully cover boats so if they're planning that, a return ticket from the link above plus a boat ticket might be best :)

Hope this helps!

I haven’t compared it to the boat price list but the Saver Day Pass ( verdaypass and will cover just about all travel in Ticino including the Lugano boats.
