Great trip
Start point easy to find
Walking in Como and shopping were great
The boat is not for tour only but is actually public transportation however stopping at different villages for pickup and off load offers a great opportunity for pictures
Lunch in Belliago at the Hotel Florence overlooking the lake was outstanding

What a wonderful day! The time spent in Como and Bellagio was wonderful! Our tour guide was friendly and interesting.

Bring sunscreen if you plan to ride on the top deck of the ferry for the whole two-hour boat ride to Bellagio - you'll want to, the views are spectacular!
