Discover Lake Como in Italy's beautiful Lake District, just a short distance from Milan. Nestled between the huge snow-capped Alps that rise up from Italy's shores, you will find the fashionable lakeside town, Como. Lake Como is the third largest lake in Europe and is surrounded by stunning alpine scenery and beautiful villages famed for their high-quality silk production.
After your 1-hour coach journey from Milan, start your tour of Como visiting the Basilica of Sant’Abbondio. Continue into Como’s historic center and enjoy some free time to get to know the town and shop in the many local boutiques.
The tour continues with a 2-hours cruise on the lake to the enchanting village of Bellagio. On your cruise, admire the lakeside villas and keep an eye out for Villa d'Este at Cernobbio, a luxurious hotel set in tropical gardens. The mild Mediterranean climate ensures an abundance of exotic and rare plants thrive year round.
Docking at the town of Bellagio, one of the most famous towns on the lake, you can follow the steep alleys running up from the lake and stop for a coffee or gelato at one of the lively cafes housed in grand historic buildings. In the afternoon, spend some time at your leisure here before cruise to Cadenabbia and return to your coach for the journey back to Milan.
