Visit two of Lake Como's most renouned and beautiful villas
This tour was specially designed for those who want to enjoy the magic of Lake Como along with a guided tour of two of its extraordinary Villas: Villa del Balbianello and Villa Melzi. Villa del Balbiannello, one of the most spectacular villas of the entire lake, stands at the end of a green promontory that stretches towards the center of the lake. You will reach the villa on foot after about 30 minutes along a pleasant path that winds through the Mediterranean vegetation of the promontory. The Villa, which can only be visited on specific occasions, offers views of unique landscapes and magnificent architecture. You will learn about the people and the stories behind this artistic asset protected by the Italian Environment Fund.
After the visit, you'll go from Lenno to Bellagio for a relaxing lunch break. In the afternoon, after a pleasant short walk along the lake, you will reach Villa Melzi, whose gardens will make you fall in love with this enchanting lake even more. The gardens that surround the villa are in fact among the most renowned in the area, and boast numerous azaleas and gigantic rhododendrons, enclosing small spaces such as the hidden cave or the artificial pond in Japanese style. The Villa Melzi gardens also have many exotic and rare plants which alternate with secular trees, big camellia hedges, and many other species of plants. Return to Milan is scheduled in late afternoon.
