Lake Como Cruise and Brunate Panoramic View (Nov - March)
Departing from central Milan in the morning, take a 1-hour drive up to Como, arriving around 10am. Take a guided tour of the city and then ride the funicular up to the town of Brunate, one of the best places to soak up a sweeping panorama of the city and the lake. You'll then have free time for lunch (own expense) in Brunate before the highlight of your afternoon: a Lake Como cruise.

Board the boat at the Como city center and then sit back and relax on a 1-hour cruise around the breathtaking lake. Admire the splendid lakeside villas and keep an eye out for Villa d'Este at Cernobbio, a luxurious hotel with tropical gardens.

After your Lake Como cruise, you'll have free time to shop, sightsee and grab some coffee if you wish before heading back to Milan around 4:30pm. On the way back, you'll stop to visit the Basilica of Sant'Abbondio, a notable church built in the 11th century in Romanesque style. You'll arrive in Milan in the evening.

Lake Como Cruise and Bellagio Visit (April - Oct)
Board the coach in central Milan in the morning and relax on the 1-hour drive to Como. Start with a visit to Basilica of Sant'Abbondio and Villa Olmo, a neoclassical lakeside villa that's one of Como's most celebrated historic homes.

Take a tour of the city and enjoy free time to shop at local boutiques for fine Italian goods. Then, board a boat at the Como city center for your extended 2-hour cruise on Lake Como.

Soak up picturesque views as you make your way to Bellagio, one of the many scenic villages surrounding the lake. You'll have free time to explore this delightful town on your own and have lunch (own expense). Back on board, savor the last views of Lake Como as you cruise to Cadenabbia, where you'll hop on the coach and head back to Milan, arriving around 6:30pm.

This was the fourth tour I took with the company and I was glad I saved it for last. Apparently the tour fills up every day with about 55 people on the bus, so reserve as soon as you know your date. With our radio receivers we were able to hear the guide very well and was able to "straggle behind" the group while listening to her commentary. It was a nice mixture of a tour of the old town and then the 2.5 hour pleasant boat ride to Bellagio and then a return by bus. One of the most gorgeous sites in Europe and certainly not to be missed. Definitely bring a good camera to take photos of memorable scenes and scenic Bellagio. I am one who usually likes to do things on one's own, and this tour is very doable that way if you plan carefully ahead. But we saw a lot in one day (we left at 8:30 am) and there was sufficient free time in most cases to wander off before regrouping, so I think the tour was well worth it.
