What You Can Expect

Lake Como Day Trip from Milan

Explore the picturesque town of Bellagio on your Lake Como Day Trip!

One of the largest bodies of water in Italy, Lake Como's best sights vary with the time of year you visit. On this tour, you’ll travel with a guide to discover the highlights of the area around the lake with an itinerary tailored to the season. Food and drinks are at your own expense throughout the day.

Winter Tour: (November to March)
Relax on your 1-hour morning journey from Milan to Lake Como. Hop out to stretch your legs on a tour of Como, the lake’s main town, and learn about its key sights around the historic center. From town, take the gondola to the village of Brunate, a serene spot in the hills above Como.

Gaze down at the lake, flanked by the Rhaetian Alps, and then make the most of some free time for lunch. Return to Como by gondola before the highlight of your day: a Lake Como boat tour. The water offers the best vantage point to see the lake and shorelines; keep an eye out for chic villas and luxury hotels as you cruise. Cernobbio’s opulent Villa d'Este hotel is one such sight with its grandiose façade and tropical gardens. 

After your return to shore, enjoy some free time to see the sights at your own pace, shop or perhaps sip a coffee. Then, finish your time in Como with a visit to the Basilica of Sant’Abbondio, a Romanesque-style 11th-century church, before your return to Milan. 

Summer Tour: (April to October)
After your 1-hour coach journey from Milan, start your tour of Como with a look inside two of its historical attractions: the Basilica of Sant’Abbondio and the neoclassical Villa Olmo on the lake. Continue into Como’s historic center, and use your free time to get to know the town at your own pace with some sightseeing or shopping for Lake Como keepsakes.

Meet back with your guide for an extended 2-hour cruise around Lake Como, admiring the hillside villas and hotels, and pose for photos against the backdrop of the alps.

Return to dry land in time for your trip to the colorful seaside town of Bellagio, which many pinpoint as a highlight of the lake. Spend some time at your leisure here to explore and perhaps savor lunch. Later, cruise to Cadenabbia, then return to your coach for the journey back to Milan.

Tour was very well run and great to see so many places around and in Lake Como. The audio guide was a nice touch on the 2 hour boat ride to Bellagio. Coach was good, group was normal size, a little on the larger side 45ish. The only item I would change if possible is to add a bathroom on the coach to/from Bellagio/Como. Ample time everywhere. HIGHLY recommend,

This is a great choice for anyone wanting to take a day trip to Lake Como. The bus was excellent, the guide was very helpful, the receivers we wore made it much easier to hear the guide, we had enough free time in Como and Bellagio to see some of the sights, the bus was comfortable, the driver was great, and the price for all of this was very reasonable.

This trip was well worth it. It was a beautiful day on the lake. We saw and did so many activities, but it was relaxing as well. This was a wonderful tour. Well planned and thought out. The boat rides were my favorite and you couldn't ask for better views.
