Day 3

Breathtaking Como.

A splendid day touring Lake Como, one of prettiest of the Italian Lakes, with breathtaking mountains towering above the glistening blue waters.

There are several picturesque lakeside towns to explore. We travel to nearby Menaggio for a morning ‘cappuccino break’.

We enjoy a boat trip across the lake to the pretty town of Bellagio for a lunch break. In a wonderful position on a small promontory, backed by mountains, the old town is connected to the lakeside by a series of steep narrow cobbled alleyways.

In the afternoon, we take the boat back to Tremezzo, where we visit the beautiful gardens at Villa Carlotta. These formal gardens, which were laid out in the 19th century are beautiful, with pretty fountains and impressive sculptures.

Day 4

At leisure

Day 5

Magnificent Maggiore.

Day excursion to majestic Lake Maggiore. This large lake is majestic, with the Alps rising in the north and dotted with pretty little islands.

We visit Stresa, which has an elegant promenade and many bars and cafes, ideal for watching the world go by!

Day 6

Lovely Lugano.

We travel to nearby Lugano. This impressive resort has a unique character and although in Switzerland, the feel is distinctively Italian.

In the afternoon, we take a funicular railway ride up Mount Bre, for spectacular views over the town and lake. The line which dates from 1912 ascends steeply to the summit of what is reputedly the sunniest peak in Switzerland!
