Varenna – Bellagio – Como
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 tour will treat you to Lake Como’s most famous locations: Varenna, Bellagio and Como. Starting from Varenna, the Pearl of the Lake, a suggestive fishing hamlet to visit slow, walking romantically along the lakeside. The town centre has so much atmosphere: a succession of narrow alleys, long staircases and old historic stone houses covered by vines. Then we board the Ferry-boat towards Bellagio…what a chance to fully enjoy the lake and its typical breeze! 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 it’ll be time for lunch. We kindly suggest you two excellent restaurants in town: Ristorante Silvio and FarOut Restaurant. In both of them you may taste local products, typical fish dishes and much more…enjoy your meal in one of this fairy location! By early afternoon, we’ll leave for Como driving almost 30 mins along the scenic road, so you’ll have all the time you need to take some photos and to admire the beauty of our wonderful Lake. Once in Como, visit the majestic Duomo right in the heart of the city, walk along the Medieval walls, discover the historical monuments as Tempio Voltiano, named after Alessandro Volta, Villa Olmo, the Church of ant’Abbondio and the Broletto.
At the end of the day, we’ll come back home with a lot of great memories!
