Northern Italy is one of the prettiest landscapes on the face of this planet. The snowy peaks of the Alps, the fascinating Romanesque and Renaissance architecture, and facades, picture-perfect boulevards and promenades; it's all there for you to experience. But it's not just Northern Italy you get to explore on this tour, you even get to discover Switzerland, more specifically, the quaint city of Lugano.
This tour is one of the most highly requested and in-demand day trips from Milan. It’s not a surprise then, that visitors always need something extra. And this tour does that, by incorporating in it a 2-hour cruise on the Lake Como. You will also be provided with a certified English-speaking guide who will accompany you on the tour and tell you everything there is to know about these fascinating locations.
Around a 12-hour experience, each minute of which is exciting, relaxing and charming, this tour is a must-do activity in Milan. A tour which merges world famous exotic locations and rich cultural heritage, the Lake Como, Bellagio, and Lugano tour is something you do not want to miss out on.
Meet your guide in the morning and hop aboard the A/C private coach for an experience unlike any other! Cruise past the street lights of Milan into the picturesque countryside of Italy and make your way to Como. An alpine destination an hour away from Milan, Como is known for its stunning lakes, fabulous villas, and incredible landscapes. Take in the beauty all around you on a cruise on Lake Como which takes you across the two branches of the lake. Learn about the history of the land, see the former villa of Hollywood legend George Clooney and enjoy a snack aboard the restaurant on the boat; before we make it to the next stop, Bellagio.
Known as ‘The Pearl of Lake Como’, Bellagio is a town famous for its resorts. Explore the city, sample the local food, shop or just stroll through the boulevards, you’re free to have your own adventure in the charming atmosphere. Once you’re done, it’s time to board the coach and head to the border.
An hour away from Bellagio, the cross-country journey to the foothills of the snowy Alps is as scenic as it sounds. Called ‘The Monte Carlo of Switzerland’, Lugano is located on a beautiful lake of the same name. Known for its artistic culture thanks to ‘Passion and Crucifixion’, a painting by Bernardino Luini, housed in the Santa Maria degli Angioli Church, a quick walk away. The painting is of such artistic caliber, it is often compared to Leonardo Da Vinci! Be sure to pick up some rich Swiss chocolates from the beautiful downtown areas before you sit back in the coach and head to Milan. You will be back in time for dinner!
