Italy's Beautiful Lake Como and Swiss Highlight

Wordsworth described Lake Como as ‘a treasure which the earth keeps to itself’. It is not simply the natural beauty of the mountain framed waters of Como that is so attractive; it is the sophisticated ambience of the towns and villages that hug its shores… and its proximity to Lake Lugano that makes it a fabulous touring base. No wonder Mr & Mrs George Clooney choose to live here!

 

Italy's Beautiful Lake Como and Swiss Highlight

After an early start we travel to dover for an early afternoon crossing. We continue our journey in Europe to

our overnight hotel in time for a three course dinner. Following a good night’s rest, we head on through France and Switzerland to Italy where we check into our hotel for the next five nights.

Villa Balbianello and Bellagio

This morning, we will visit Villa Balbianello in Tremezzino with its amazing history and stunning location jutting out into the lake. You may choose to take a water bus from the jetty to the village of Lenno.

Tremezzo

Enjoy a day at leisure to relax in our stunning resort or you may also like to take the local ferry to Varenna. The fairly sedate, attractive lakeside village in the central part of Lake Como is traditionally a fishing village and has colourful houses and villas built close to each. The historical centre of Varenna is nicely cozy and has bars with terraces and a pedestrian walk along the lake shore.

Lugano, Switzerland

Today, we will cross the Swiss border (remembering to bring our passports!) and visit the stylish city of Lugano situated on the shores of lake Lugano with its grand promenade, chic shops and cafés and amazing yachts.

Villa Carlotta and Menaggio

We spend a morning at the magnificent neo classical Villa Carlotta & Gardens, covering over 70,000 square meters with its beautiful art collections and splendid botanical gardens.  Later this afternoon we enjoy some free time in Menaggio which offers a variety of bars, shops & restaurants set on a beautiful lakeside location.
