The tour is accompanied by an English-speaking guide, you will be taken on a coach tour to Lake Como. With a surface of 146 square metres, Lake Como is the third largest lake in Italy, after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore. Its peculiar shape, an upturned Y, is due to its three branches: Colico, the northern branch, Lecco, the south east branch and Como, the south west branch.

Summer Itinerary:
Take a tour of the Como city centre and admire its beautiful old villas and learn about the history of Lombardy. The sites worth visiting are: silk museum, civic museum and Alessandro Volta museum.

Take a boat cruise on Lake Como (approximately 2 hours) to Bellagio, a commune in the province of Como. Perched at the tip of the peninsula separating the lake’s two southern arms, it is possible to get a view of the Alps across the lake. Here you will have free time to enjoy lunch. Transfer by boat from Bellagio to Cadenabbia.

From Como, you will be transferred back to Milan.

Winter Itinerary:
Take a tour of the Como city centre and admire its beautiful old villas and learn about the history of Lombardy. The sites worth visiting are: silk museum, civic museum and Alessandro Volta museum. Here, visit the historic city centre and take a cable car ride to Brunate. Here you can enjoy lunch with a million dollar view.

After lunch, return to Como and on your cruise, admire the lakeside villas. Keep an eye out for Villa d'Este at Cernobbio, a luxurious hotel set amidst tropical gardens. The mild Mediterranean climate ensures that an abundance of exotic and rare plants thrive all year round.

Once back in Como, visit the Romanesque Sant'Abbondio church and Villa Olmo or enjoy free time shopping in many of the fashionable stores.

From Como, you will be transferred back in a coach to Milan.

Mrs Eilwyn K Curtis

This was an excellent experience and certainly lived up to my expectations. It was a truly magical day tour with a good balance of seeing a lot of Lake Como from the ferry and then to have the opportunity of a return trip from Bellagio by coach. Both Como and Bellagio were fantastic and the guide enhanced the day with his great organization and the valuable information that he was able to impart.

Teresa Gonzalez

This was one of the best tours we took in Italy. The tour was well organized...not too large either. Lake Como is breathtaking. We stopped for lunch and enjoyed the people and views. Our tour director was awesome giving details on everything we saw. I would highly recommend Zani Viaggi and the Lake Como tour.

Miss S R Downing

Our tour guide was fantastic, keeping us fully informed from start to finish, a brilliantly organised tour well worth the money We had time to look around Como & plenty of time in Bellagio, which is by far the most stunning place I have ever visited. The ferry on lake Como was a lovely leisurely pace, giving us time to soak in scenery. I would definitely go back here in a heartbeat

Ann Andreson

A pleasurable experience from the safe and reliable bus driver to the delightful and informative tour guide. My daughter and I were on a trip of a lifetime through Europe and our tour of Lake Como was definitely one of the highlights. The ferry boat ride offered incredible views of the emerald green lake, and the colorful lakeside homes enveloped by the surrounding highlands. Enjoyed the quality artisan shops along the cobblestone pathways of the beautiful town of Bellagio.
