City of Como

A dedicated guide will lead you among historical monuments, like the city’s cathedral with its Lombard-Gothic facade, the Broletto palace, the Municipal Tower and Piazza Verdi with its elegant theatre.

City of Bellagio

From Como the small group will then head toward North, along the picturesque western banks of the lake (Statale Regina), stopping at some beautiful observation point for a glass of prosecco wine or a soft drink. Once in Lenno the trip will continue by boat. First stop over is Bellagio, the “Pearl of the Lake” because of its great position on top the ridge separating the two branches of the lake. The town will surprise you with the great and aristocratic atmosphere and is famous “Climbs”, charming staircases with lovely silk workshops.

City of Varenna

After a break for lunch and some free time that you can spend for shopping or just for relaxing on a bench facing the lake, you will be guided to the lovely town of Varenna, on the east bank of the lake, a place that boasts a wide and rich architectural heritage and a beautiful natural surrounding.
You will return back to Milan with all the magic of an unforgettable day at the heart of Como Lake.

Famous travelers and their quotations

This lake exceeds anything I ever beheld in beauty […] It is long and narrow, and has the appearance of a mighty river winding among the mountains and the forests

English poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, who stayed here in the 1820s

when every thing seems to slumber, and the music of the vesper bells comes stealing over the water, one almost believes that nowhere else can there be found such a paradise of tranquil repose.

American writer Mark Twain, ‘The Innocents Abroad‘,1867

[…] je reviendrais souvent sur ce lac sublime ; rien d’aussi beau ne peut se voir au monde, du moins pour mon cœur. A quoi bon aller si loin chercher le bonheur […]

French writer Stendhal, ‘La Chartreuse de Parme’, 1812

When you write the story of two happy lovers, set it on the banks of Lake Como. I do not know of any place which is more demonstrably blessed by heaven

Hungarian pianist and composer Franz Listz, who lived in Bellagio in the late 1830s
