Explore scenic Lake Como, just 1-hour from Milan, on comfortable coaches, a funicular railway and relaxing boat cruise. One of Italy's most spectacular lakes, you will enjoy top-notch shopping, as well as the breathtaking backdrop of the snowy Alps.
What to Expect
Home to Hollywood celebrities, such as George Clooney, Lake Como is one of the jewels in Italy's Lake District.
On this 9-hour winter tour from Milan, you will get to explore the lake and its villages by bus, boat and on foot. You will depart from Milan at 09:00 for a 1-hour journey in air-conditioned coaches. With time to relax and enjoy the landscape, you will soon be ascending the hills at Brunate via a fun funicular railway.
Rewarded with breathtaking views of the lake and the mountains, there will be time for a leisurely lunch, and the chance to stroll round the town itself.
You will then head back to the glassy waters for a panoramic boat trip around the lake. Home to noble villas and lavish summer homes, Lake Como’s exquisite combination of Mediterranean flair and Alpine drama will be a feast for your eyes. The snow-capped mountains of the Alps are your constant backdrop as you gently cruise across the lower lake and back to Como.
Keep an eye out for the luxurious Villa d’Este hotel, nestled in tropical gardens, and for the abundance of rare and exotic plants that thrive in the mild Como climate year round.
Back in Como town center you will get the chance to do some shopping in the fashionable stores, or If retail therapy is not your thing, opt to visit the Romanesque Sant’ Abbondio church, or wander round the stunning Villa Olmo.
Then it is back to Milan for a convenient drop-off, giving you plenty of time to return to your hotel and prepare for your own dinner arrangements in the cosmopolitan city.
