Day trip on the lake

Day trip on the lake: discovering the villas and the Castle of Vezio


Lake Como is famous all over the world for its enchanting Villas and Castles: architectural jewels with breath-taking gardens. In this daily tour, we will treat you to the most beautiful. Our first visit will be the magnificent Castle of Vezio, situated on top of the hill behind the town of Varenna, with a spectacular view on the lake. This Castle will take you back in time with its unique atmosphere. Cross the old drawbridge and get ready to enjoy this medieval adventure! You may also climb up the tower with its typical square crenulation reminding the Castle of Cly’s one.
In Varenna we will also visit the botanical garden of Villa Monastero, full of rare botanic species. This is a true explosion of colours, shapes and perfumes. In late morning, we will move to Bellagio and after some free time to explore the town, we will visit another fabulous garden, the one of Villa Melzi. We will walk through exotic plants and flowers, centuries-old trees and valuable sculptures and monuments. The last treasure that we will visit in our tour is Villa Carlotta, the queen of the villas. Surrounded by a majestic garden, Villa Carlotta is today a museum, whose art collection includes works by Canova, Thorvaldsen, Migliara and Hayez in addition to pieces of furniture from the time of the various owners. It is not easy to explain with world the beauty of this place, you will see with your eyes! At the end of the day, we will leave for Lecco, driving along the scenic road on the lake. Once arrived, a tasty happy hour with cocktail and appetizer wait for us at “Imbarcadero” Cocktail Bar.
