Highlight of Extensive Italian Tour
J3GP
, Jun 2019
We traveled for 3 weeks in Italy, from Amalfi to Milan. It was memorable in so many different ways. Lake Como...We anticipated a special treat but never did we expect such an area of overwhelming Beauty! From the Lake itself, to the Mansions and small villages that dot the coastline with their local artists and quaint, manicured streets adorned with flowers and then to its restaurants with regional cuisine we were left in awe. Truly a marvel. If the Beauty isn't enough to satisfy then add a well educated tour guide, Renzo, who is local to the area with an extensive knowledge and appreciation of all that the Lake has to offer. We enjoyed The Villa Carlotta and its history, Bellagio and Varenna as well as boating across this unique lake with its special micro-climate. We also enjoyed shopping for silk, as Lake Como is world renowned for silk production! Highly Recommend!!!

It was a really (and great) full day trip as it mention. We met Renzo at 08:00 a.m. at Milan central train station and took the train to Varenna (a great way to get know to the public transportation in Italy). At Varenna we had a break for coffee and travel a little in her main street. Than, we took the ferry to Vila Carlotta in Tremezzo and walked in and around her beautiful gardens. The third stop was in Bellagio of course where we had some time for shopping and a good lunch with the best tiramisu we ever ate!!! Must mention the beautiful view we had while eating at this restaurant. In addition to all of those places, colors and view, there was RENZO of course. polite, kind, smart and a pleasant person to talk to. Now, when we are at home, I can say that it was our best day in north Italy and it is all because of HIM!!!

In varenna we had a break for coffee and a little walk at the main street.Then took the ferry to Tremezzo and visit Vila Carlotta and the beautiful gardens. The third stop was at Bellagio of course where we had some time for shopping and enjoy an excellent restaurant with the best Tiramisu we ever ate and a view that we can only imagine! Actually,I must say that the day was in accordance with the description in Viator but it was so successful because of Renzo itself who lead the tour (our tour guide). Besides the beautiful views, colors and places we have been, he was patient and attentive to all our wishes. A pleasant person that it was no matter where we go, his company make the difference from other tours.

Tour of Lake Como and Villa Carlotta

My husband and I had a wonderful time on our trip from Milan with our tour guide, Renzo Durini , from Your Travel Diary. We were happy that even though it was just the two of us that our tour was not cancelled like our Tivoli Day Trip from Rome with Rome Your Way Tour Company. Renzo met us at the train station in Milan and we traveled by train to Varenna. He was quite knowledgeable about the area. Lake Como is beautiful and the boat ride around the lake was wonderful. It was a delight to see the towns of Varenna, Bellagio, and Tremezzo. I loved the Villa Carlotta and the gardens were beautiful. However, when we were there on June 11 the flowers, such as the azaleas and roses, were no longer in bloom. I really enjoyed our tour with Renzo and would like to return to Lake Como to see some of the other Villas located around the lake. I would recommend this tour to everyone and even told my travel agent to recommend this tour to their clients.

Hello, thank you very much for your nice review. Our min of passengers is 2 people and we usually have a very small group as we like to make it special anytime. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour with us and the Villa Carlotta which is just stunning every season you visit it. Best regards and Happy Travels.

My husband and I were the only ones who showed up, but the tour went anyway. That was great. Our guide Renzo Durini was very knowledgeable. We arrived in Varenna before the stores were open, so I would have skipped that. I was not interested in the architecture of the several churches in Varenna. Time would have been better spent getting on the boat on Lake Maggiore to Villa Carlotta. Interesting Villa and Renzo had a lot of info about the background. Had enough time to visit the Villa but not the extensive gardens. Next back on boat to Bellagio- I loved Bellagio as I am a shopper. Good recommendation for lunch in Bellagio. Time to shop in Bellagio and back on boat to Varenna to get train to Milan. My changes would be skip Varenna. Go straight to Bellagio- it was better. Eat a snack or lunch at 5 star Grand hotel in Tremezzo after Villa Carlotta. Then I would do boat to Como and either stay overnight there or get train/bus back to Milan. Not sure if all that fits into a day, but I missed not seeing anything of Como environs. I would have been ok getting back to Milan later in the evening if I could see some of Como. I also like to visit 5 star hotels and get a glass of wine there or a pastry. I do appreciate Renzo giving me enough time to shop in Bellagio.

This full day 10 hours or more round trip is well worth it. The lake is beautiful and the towns are charming. Our guide, Renzo Durini, was born in Como and now lives in Milan and knows the area and its history extremely well. He is also knowledgeable about Italian history and politics generally, so the hour train trip back and forth from Milan was also well spent. Renzo caters the trip to the tastes of the customers. We were able to spend more time enjoying the art and gardens of the Villa Carlotti in Tremezzo, but, if we had preferred, we could have spent more time shopping in Bellagio. Renzo knows a lot about both places--where to eat, where to shop, what is notable about the works of art. We could have made the train trip by ourselves, but would have missed half of what was notable about the area without Renzo's guidance. If you have time only for a day trip to Lake Como, this tour is definitely worth it.
