Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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, 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 the 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 coach journey from Milan, start your tour of Como with a look inside two of its historical attractions: the Basilica of Sant’Abbondio. 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 a scenic 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.
Stop At:  
Cathedral of Como (Duomo)
After your 1-hour coach journey from Milan, start your tour of Como visiting the historic center and enjoy some free time to get to know the town and shop in the many local boutiques.

Traveler Tips

  • "Don’t ask for any assistance such as directions, taxis, etc." See review
  • "Be aware: the tour leaves Milan at 8.30am and doesn't arrive in Bellagio (which is where lunch is suggested) until after 2pm so to make the most of your visit to Bellagio buy something to eat on the boat." See review
  • "The lack of public conveniences in this part of Italy was inconvenient, and given their was no toilet on the coach, it would be useful if the guides had pointed out that facilities are provided on the ferries." See review

Como fab, tour not worth it
, Jan 2022
Firstly, I must stress that Como is beautiful. Everyone should go - must go - if near Milan. It's a little piece of heaven. This tour, sadly, is simply not worth it. Turns out it's very easy to visit Como yourself from Milan. Direct train and no wasting if time. -Staff at agency rude -Tour guide only ok but driver friendly -boat cruise is just regular local ferry. We simply stayed in it and did a loop without getting off. -the furnicular you do yourself (thankfully) and are just given the ticket -a lot of time wasted in Como in the morning, slow walking, pointless explanations, etc. Save time and do it yourself, esp if time is limited -bus is quick though. As this trip basically just brings you to Como town it kind of makes little sense to do it as a tour package
Fantastic experience! Highly suggest!!!

Great way to experience Lake Como. The town is historic and adorable with multiple shops and places to eat. Seeing the lake from the boat was a highlight. We are excited to return again. Great and informative guide as well.
Tranquil and beautiful scenery

Beautiful scenery and great information about the area from our tour guide. Relaxing and tranquil. Lots of free time to explore independently. We did the hike to the lighthouse which has stunning views. Boat ride was relaxing and enjoyable. Would highly recommend this tour!!

Tour guide was informative. Was a great tour, not too long of a day and many beautiful sites. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Beautiful lake! Poor tour operators...
, Nov 2021
I wish I could rate the scenery and the tour operators separately, so I will explain our experience. The trip was great and the scenery beautiful. If you want to see beautiful villages, mountains, tge lake,I recommend it. The tour operators were not so great. Our guide seemed exhausted so not very enthusiastic when sharing facts and talking to us. That's understandable, he sees these places all the time. He was thorough just not enthusiastic. The tour office was the Worst! We paid over 400€ for our family of 5 and when we asked to borrow the restroom for our daughter, they said no..What?! any coffee shop will let you use the bathroom if you buy a coffee,but they wouldn't even for child. I think that insensitive, rude, and if I could,I would avoid those people. Hope this helps guide you.

Great experience
, Nov 2021
The trip was well organized and the guide was knowledgeable and nice. We learned a lot about the area and enjoyed the tour.
Amazing experience, thank you!!
, Nov 2021
We had the best time ever. Everything was taken care of, very clear instructions from the guide and loads of interesting information. The guide gives a short tour in every location and you have free time yourself after. We wandered off the guided tours as we wanted to explore ourselves and having that option was great. We had plenty of free time to explore, walk around, shop, eat, take pictures. We were there on a cloudy day and it was so beautiful, I can’t even imagine what it’s like on a sunny day. Now I am keen to go back again! Thank you for this amazing trip, we loved it!
Awesome tour

Giudy (I think I spelled the guide’s name right) was very experienced and the tour was well planned. There was a good amount of free time for us to walk around the beautiful town of Como and Bellagio!
