Start the day with a guided tour of Varenna, a quaint lakeside town with beautiful alleys and winding streets. From here, board a charming Venetian-style boat for a leisurely boat tour that passes some of Lake Como's most picturesque and interesting sites including Villa Carlotta, Villa Balbianello, Villa La Cassinella, Villa Balbiano, and Isola Comacina. Enjoy a refreshing glass of Prosecco in front of Villa Balbianello's famous terraced gardens.
