Tour Details

Lake Como, north of Milan, was named the most beautiful lake in the world by the prestigious Huffington Post thanks to its ancient villages, breathtaking views, and secluded shores.

Its pearl, beautiful Varenna, is the starting point of your day: from here you can see the exact point where the lake divides into two branches and take unique photos.

Your private guide will take you to discover the small village and its architectural wonders: Villa Monastero and its botanical garden, the Hotel Royal Victoria, once a spinning mill, which hosted many famous people including Queen Victoria of England, and the small church of San Giovanni Battista, one of the oldest on the lake.

Reach Lenno by ferry, which is located on the opposite shore of the lake: the charming village is famous worldwide thanks to Villa Oleandra, which George Clooney has chosen as his home for his summer vacations (and not only...).

After a walk on the lakefront, it’s time to visit the beautiful Villa del Balbianello: chosen in the past as the set for an episode of Star Wars and for "007 - Casino Royale", the Villa is one of the most scenic homes of the lake.

This romantic mansion of the eighteenth century houses maps, antique books, precious furniture and collections of ancient art objects, and is surrounded by a dream garden, all to be discovered.
