When visiting northern Italy, there’s really no need to choose between Lake Como, Bellagio and Lugano. You can see these spectacular settings all in one day with this Milan gift experience, with convenient, comfortable travel from the city centre. Accompanied by a local guide, you’ll begin with the essential boat cruise on Lake Como, surely one of Europe’s most beautiful bodies of water. You’ll see stunning villas owned by the rich and the famous, including Hollywood stars such as George Clooney - if you see him sunbathing, be sure and give him a wave. Some of these villas have also been used as film locations for hit movies.
After a two-hour cruise, disembark and head for the charming town of Bellagio, known as the ‘Pearl of Lake Como’ and the perfect place to find a restaurant for lunch. Afterwards, you’ll continue on to Lugano, in southern Switzerland, crossing the border at the foot of the Alps. Enjoy scenic walks, shopping for luxury goods, and the opportunity to taste some delectable Swiss chocolate of course, in a city they call the ‘Swiss Monte Carlo’ because of the clientele it attracts. Expect to be wowed. Then you’ll return to Milan in time for dinner, with plenty to talk about!
