Full description
Take a day trip out of Milan and cruise across Lake Como, one of the largest lakes in Italy. Feast your eyes on the beauty of the Alps, which are reflected in the lake’s crystal waters for an enchanting view. During the bus ride out from Milan, your tour leader will give you informative commentary on the historical landmarks and the spectacular landscape along the way. Once off the bus, you will reach the city center, the very heart of the lakeshore city of Como. While walking through the streets of Como, you will stop at the gothic cathedral before reaching the dock.
 
Then, take the scenic route by jumping on a ferry and admire the nature and charming city of Como from yet another different perspective. During the cruise, take your time to look around and see the harmony of the local nature and architecture. Your tour leader will carefully point all the villas with their pretty gardens amongst wild nature. Enjoy all the different shades of colors, starting from the blue of the water and the green of the mountains and ending with the spectrum of vibrant flowers.

After the cruise, disembark in Bellagio, known as the Pearl of Lake Como. Allow yourself to be charmed by the elegant village on the lake, which captured the hearts of many Hollywood stars and now plays host to their holiday homes. On your way back you will stop in Magreglio to visit the chapel of Madonna del Ghisallo, today is known as the most iconic place for all cyclists.
