What You Can Expect

Italy and Switzerland in One Day: Lake Como and Lugano from Milan

Take a relaxing walk through the town of Lugano

Depart from central Milan and journey toward the Italian Alps by coach. After a relaxing drive, arrive in Lake Como for your cruise.

Marvel at the luxury real estate while you glide along the water, passing glamorous, celebrity-owned villas. Learn about some of the famous properties from your guide, and hear about the area’s history. After two hours, return to land to purchase lunch and discover the picturesque town of Bellagio on your own.

Afterward, reunite with your driver and continue over the Swiss border to the Italian-speaking town of Lugano. Soak up additional time here to explore independently, browsing the local shops for Swiss chocolate, fine luxury goods and clothes, or checking out the scene by the lake. For a little art and culture, admire Bernardino Luini’s Renaissance masterpiece, Passion and Crucifixion, with a visit to the Chiesa di Santa Maria degli Angioli.

After a full day of sightseeing, return to Milan with your guide in the late afternoon.

This trip was fabulous from start to finish despite the fact that the weather was against us. The guides were knowledgable about the areas and more than willing to share that knowledge.
It was a memorable experience and one that I would recommend
