LAKE COMO, BELLAGIO AND VARENNA
Board a luxury motor coach and head for the town of Como. After a one-hour driving, the first stop is in Como town. Follow your guide on a walking tour within the “walled town”, visiting Duomo square where in only a single block, the Duomo (the last of the Gothic cathedrals built in Lombardy), the Broletto and the city tower are located and S. Fedele square: place of the ancient roman forum.
After free time, you will board on your coach to enjoy a 45 minutes panoramic drive along the Western coast of the lake to reach Tremezzo. Stop on the way to visit Villa Olmo with its beautiful Italian gardens.
Once in Tremezzo, get on board of your private boat to enjoy a 60 minute of a panoramic cruise circumnavigating the peninsula of Balbianello Villa and the Comacina island and then disembark to the charming Bellagio. Enjoy your time for lunch and visit.
Get the Ferry to the Eastern coast of the lake, to reach Varenna and discover its hidden beauties having a promenade along the narrow streets of cobblestones of this fisherman village. You will find beautiful glimpses of the lake for memorable photos and selfies!
Finish your trip with a drive back to Milan. You’ll be dropped off back at your departure point in town at the end of the day.

This trip was a perfect end to 20 days in Italy traveling the entire country. Very relaxing. Did not have to see anything or could see everything! We chose to relax at every stop and eat/drink and people watch.
The trip is definatelly worth a lot, but we had to wait everytime for the spanish translation and Franco our guide sometimes went on and on about minor things while he ommited important information. After Como he was interested in talking all the time to the bus driver alone than talking to us. When they left us on free time in every place Franco made no suggestions about what we could visit and in Bellagio I saw wonderfull things simply by accident. In overcrowded Varenna we were given only 20 minutes which were sufficient only for a very hasty walk-if one could because of the crowd. We were told nothing about Mlan during the way, nothing about the countless towns and villages we crossed on our way, nor about the history of the place, ecxept for some very general and boring things that Franco told us in Como where he had us standing for half an hour going on and on about things that we really didn;t care too much to listen. I really think that someone should tell this chap how the job is really done!
This went beyond my dreams it was perfect and stunning . The tour in itself is well organized for a large group . Marcella is such a gifted person , spoke so many languages very personable so easy to make a connection . It was a well worth trip Im willing to do all over again
guide andre he was thoughtful and easy to understand-- major issue was the dual language tour we requested english yet we got english and spanish this made listening and engaging very difficult i I lost interest because i had to wait each time for both versions VERY BAD
So gorgeous trip with so friendly guide , really we enjoyed the trip, the trip is exactly as described
The tour was great, our tour guide oleg is very mindful of everyone. He will also recommend where to get good pastries
Highly recomend this trip to anyone in the Milan area. The sights of lake Como are amazing and Bellagio is a quaint, little town, with great restaurants and shops. The tour was well organized and the guide, Oleg shared lots of info. Boat tour and villa Olmo was the highlight and we had excellent weather which allowed us to take beautiful pictures.
Fab day started with smooth and quick journey to Como, an hour there and then a further hour around the lake to meet our private boat for the one hour trip to Bellagio. A generous 2 hours there allowed for lunch and sightseeing. A short public ferry crossing to Verana and 40 minute stay there inc icecreams before the journey back to Milan. Great guide, very informative and fab language skills. Well worth the money
Tour guide was knowledgeable about the area and the history. Went on too long about George Clooney. Tour was conducted in English and Spanish which I found distracting
We waited 10mins early at Duomo pick up point, then we saw a group of people walking away without any signs or instructions. When confirming with the tour office (AUTOSTRADALE VIAGGI SRL), the lady shouted at me and was very rude. We had to take taxi to Central station on our own. The tour guide Oleg was irresponsible, unreliable, and unpleasant. We missed the ferry from Bellagio and was supposed to catch up in Varenna. He said he will wait for us, but there was nobody, no information whatsoever. We took the train back to Milan by ourselves. This is the worst tour I have ever experienced. Very unfortunate because the places we went to were very beautiful.
our tour guide, oleg, hope that is spelled correctly, was very informative and pleasant. everything went without a hitch. great way to see como and surrounding areas. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Did the day trip by bus from Milan.. totally worth it. The guide was great! Next time I would just do Como and Bellagio. Was sort of tired by the time we got to Verenna.
