- Explore scenic Lake Como in Italy's beautiful Lake District on a day trip from Milan. The fashionable lakeside town of Como is just a short drive from Milan, surrounded by snowcapped mountains. After spending time shopping and dining in Como, you'll take a two-hour panoramic cruise on Lake Como to the enchanting village of Bellagio.
Lake Como is the third largest lake in Italy, after Lake Garda and Lake Verbano, and is ringed with scenic towns. On your cruise, admire the splendid lakeside villas and keep an eye out for Villa d'Este at Cernobbio, a luxurious hotel complete with tropical gardens. The mild Mediterranean climate ensures an abundance of exotic and rare plants thrive year round.
Docking at the delightful town of Bellagio, you can follow the steep lanes running up from the lake and stop at boutiques and cafes housed in historic buildings. Before returning to Milan by coach you'll enjoy an afternoon break at La Tessitura, a concept store designed by Mantero Seta featuring a tribute to silk production.
Please note: This tour has year-round departures. The above itinerary applies during summer months (1 April - 31 October). At all other times you will enjoy a one-hour boat cruise on the lakes followed by a cable car up to the village of Brunate to see the stunning views of the city.
