Itinerary

  • Day 1 UK to Milan
  • You’ll fly to Milan today and transfer to the picturesque resort of Tremezzo on the shores of Lake Como.

    
Lake Como is renowned throughout the world for its natural beauty and inspiring mountain scenery. Boasting affluent towns and exquisite villas, this exceptional area in the north of Italy is also noted for its relaxed atmosphere and is a favoured retreat of the rich and famous. After time to settle in at the hotel, we’ll get to know one another better this evening over a welcome drink and dinner.

  • Day 2 Bellagio
  • Today we include a visit by ferry boat to Villa Melzi Gardens in Bellagio. Set directly on the shores of the lake, the gardens are a delight to explore. Lush trees and softly scented borders are decorated with elegant sculptures and connected by meandering paths. As we explore, we’ll also be treated to fantastic views of the lake’s calm waters and the majestic mountains that encircle it. Later, you’ll have some free time to explore Bellagio with your travelling companions, before returning to the hotel by ferry boat.
  • Day 3 Lake Maggiore, Villa Taranto and the Borromean Islands
  • We’ll discover more of the region’s incredible highlights on today’s full-day tour. We’ll soak up the stunning scenery of Lake Maggiore, then continue on to the famous Botanical Gardens of the Villa Taranto at Pallanza. Featuring more than 20,000 different species of plants from all over the world, they are a true gardeners’ paradise. A short boat trip across the lake takes us to tiny Isola Bella – one of the Borromean Islands within the lake. Boasting a magnificent 17th century palace and impressive terraced gardens, it has long been used as an idyllic sanctuary.
  • Day 4 Como Town
  • Como Town is located at the southern tip of the lake and today we include a visit here. After time to explore the ancient walls, historic architecture and lively square with your Tour Manager, we’ll sail across the lake back to Tremezzo.
  • Day 5 Tremezzo
  • Today has been left free for you explore at leisure. The village is just a short stroll away from your hotel and you may choose to visit the 18th century Villa Carlotta with its fine artworks and exquisite gardens. Alternatively, you could venture out on one of the excellent hiking paths or simply laze by the pool and soak up the sunshine, either independently or in the company of your travelling companions.
  • Day 6 Villa Monastero, Varenna
  • You can spend another relaxing day in Tremezzo, or maybe you’ll choose to join our optional excursion to the elegant Villa Monastero in Varenna. Sitting on the eastern shores of Lake Como, the villa boasts a beautiful garden which stretches along the water’s edge.

  • An optional excursion today will take you to the exclusive Swiss resort of St Moritz. We’ll step aboard the Bernina Express and enjoy a scenic train journey to the elegant town located by a sparkling mountain lake.
