Information and reservations for this day long excursion to Como and Bellagio, with boat trip on Lake Como.

Whatever the reasons for finding yourselves in Milan (fashion, passion, the Last Supper, football, flights or opera), it's easy to forget that some of Italy's most striking scenery and splendour is on your doorstep. Pretty high up any list is Lake Como, and here we offer a full-day excursion from Milan, with guided visits to Bellagio and Como, as well as an unforgettable boat trip on Lake Como itself, admiring some of the finest villas and gardens in Italy.

The tour heads off from Milan every day between April and October, and on Wednesday and Saturday only from November to March, leaving at 9 o clock in the morning and returning at around 6 o clock in the evening. From 1st of April it starts at 8.30 AM. You'll arrive (private coach) in the town of Como at around ten in the morning, where you'll have a guided visit to the town centre, after which it's on to the lake itself for your panoramic cruise by boat to Bellagio. You'll pass by some wonderful villas and gardens, including the well known villa (now luxury hotel), Villa Este at Cernobbio. Please note that during the winter the tour is slightly shorter, excluding the visit to Bellagio and starts at 9 o clock.

At roughly 4 o clock it's back to Como where the coach will take you up to the Basilica S. Abbondio, a fine Romanesque church, with splendid frescoes, located a kilometre or so outside the town walls. After a coffee break at a local silk store, it's back on the coach to the return trip to Milan. You can pass the hour wondering if George Clooney saw you sail by.


To reserve your tickets for the Lake Como tour, just fill out the booking form, supply us with credit card details, and we'll do the rest. There will be no charge whatsoever until we confirm your reservation. We'll then point you to our secure page, where you can print out your voucher. Print it out, take it with you and present it at the pre-arranged meeting point. As simple as that!

Should you be at the planning stages of your trip, allow us to point you to Milan hotels, all with instant online availability and reservation.

Loved this. Unfortunately with Easter being so early this year we missed out on going to Bellagio which we would have loved to seen. And there was no coffee break at a local silk store on the way back - which was very disappointing. I would have like to have got some silk.

We enjoyed the day (although we wish it hadn't been raining). Lake Como is beautiful. The fact that our guide was from Como made her commentary more personal and informative. You could sense her love for the area. We had a delightful time.

A good day trip with a variety of stops and transport (shame it rained the whole time we were on the boat!) Guide was good but the audio system did not work on the boat (maybe because we were all inside?) so we missed lots of the information
