Varenna – Bellagio – Lierna
Lake Como is worldwide well-known for its timeless beauty, the enchanting Villas, the lovely hamlets overlooking the lake water and all its fairy-tale landscapes nestled in the mountains. This wonderful experience will let you discover the famous hamlet of Bellagio and walk along the romantic alleys in Varenna…and much more…in the night, you’ll enjoy e special dinner at a very special location overlooking the lake!
The first leg of our tour will be Bellagio: we’ll visit the gorgeous gardens in Villa Melzi, an Italian family-owned heritage house now National Monument. You’ll walk through rare and exotic plants, colored flowers, centuries-old trees, valuable sculptures and monuments. Then you’ll have time to visit the historic centre, walking along its typical streets, admiring its suggestive antique houses and colorful shops. Bellagio is truly a one-of-a-kind location, also thanks to its position: from here one can embrace the horizon almost completely…just be careful…you’ll probably fall in love with this place!
Now it’s time to board the ferryboat towards the enchanting fascinating romantic Varenna, one of the Pearls of the Lake. This is an old fishing hamlet to visit slow, enjoying every single detail it has to offer. Walking through the historic centre of the town you’ll find a succession of narrow alleys, long staircases and old stone houses covered by vines. Touring the main square, the renowned Piazza San Giorgio, you’ll probably come across some local markets…but don’t forget to visit the wonderful Church of San Giorgio overlooking the square: a great example of Lombardy Architecture enriched by notable frescoes and murbles.
And now…what about the best way ever to end your tour in style?! We’ll move to Lierna for our special dinner at Sottovento Restaurant! The owner will delight us with some really tasty delicacies: from lake fish typical dishes to Valtellina local meat products, the choice it’s on you! A full belly, a great day behind and lot of memories to keep in minds…what more could one ask for?
