  • Milan, Italy

    Leave central Milan by air-conditioned coach, and travel away from the city toward the snowcapped Italian Alps and Swiss border. Relax on the scenic journey and get ready for your 2-hour cruise!

    Board on the boat to cruise past luxury real estate along the shoreline. You quickly realize how Lake Como has become one of Italy’s most exclusive residential areas. Plush villas belonging to the likes of Sir Richard Branson and George Clooney are common sights around the glamorous lake.

    Hear about the mansion-size villas and their celebrity owners from your onboard guide, and look out for some of Como’s historical landmarks, too. After returning to dry land, explore the beautiful town of Bellagio, the 'pearl of Lake Como'. Make the most of your free time here to get to know the town. For lunch, stop at one of Bellagio’s cafes (own expense).

    After your break, leave the lakeside area and travel over the border to Lugano, aka the Monte Carlo of Switzerland. Located on a lake of the same name, Lugano is an Italian-speaking Swiss town and favorite vacation spot for affluent Europeans. How you spend your time in the chic city is up to you. Pay homage to Lugano’s cultural scene with a visit to Chiesa di Santa Maria degli Angioli to see Bernardino Luini’s Renaissance masterpiece titled Passion and Crucifixion; hit the downtown shops and scout out Swiss chocolate, fine luxury goods and clothes; or simply soak up the lakeside sights.

    Meet back up with your guide in the late afternoon, and finish your day trip by traveling back to the start point in central Milan.

    We had a wonderful tour guide, Myriam who cheerfully showed us picture opportunities and gave great descriptions of the various sights. She was a lot of fun to to be with. Even when we got caught in a downpour with hail at the end of the day on the way to the bus, she made sure we were all safe and comfortable and joked to make us laugh at the situation. Overall, she helped us have a great experience!

    The trip was amazingly the best in my Italy tour. I enjoyed the tour to Lake Lugano, Bellagio and Lake Como. If I ever I have to return to Italy, I would love to do it again. Our tour guide Eddie was superb. Thumbs up.

    Amazing views! We had 2 guides, Valentina and Simone, who entertained and led us through the day. We were in Valentinas group and she provided great information even during the public ferry portion of the day. This is along day but worth it! Valentina recommended a silk shop in Bellagio where I was able to purchase 2 scarves and a mens tie for less than 90 euro. There was time to buy chocolate in Lugano after we visited the historic church and had a coffee.

    We are so happy we took this tour! Our tour guide Sylva is pleasant and informative! The sights are beautiful and it was so relaxing to be able to ride the bus and ferry and not have to drive! We didn't feel rushed; plenty of time to eat and shop between seeing the sights. We highly recommend this!

    The tour was excellent. We had a beautiful, sunny day. The tour guides were excellent with their communication and provided information during the entire excursion. The tour was organized and on time, so we didn't feel rushed at all. We had plenty of time to shop, eat and explore. The boat ride was excellent and provided great views for picture-taking. Lugano was fun. The ride to Lugano was just as interesting as Lugano itself. We enjoyed chocolate from Switzerland--wish I would have bought more.

    This tour was amazing! The tour guide Laura was absolutely fantastic...one of the best tour guides I've ever had in the past decade of visiting various countries. She was attentive, knowledgeable, gave great advice, had an amazing sense of humour and had a perfect balance of organization along with a leisurely attitude. Lugano was amazing, very relaxed and sophisticated. Very scenic with the water. Bellagio was really spectacular as well. Great food and shops with narrow paths. The boat ride was lengthy and the guide did a great job explaining highlights on the boat of celebrity villas and other historical notes. Great day trip, very smooth and enjoyable!
