Lake Como beckons to visitors with supreme beauty captured in the reflective waters and soaring snow-capped peaks along the edges of the Italian Alps. Small, historical towns form pockets along the lakeshores nestled between the rippling waters and ascending foothills blanketed with pine forest. Your private transfer greets you at Malpensa International Airport in Milan before escorting you into the mountains to the town of Lecco on the eastern shores of Lake Como. Villas more than two hundred years old line the cobbled lanes with the rugged mountain summits in the background.
The aroma of fresh espresso drifts out of the cafes whose tables and chairs spill out on the piazzas for views over the water. You are immersed in the fairytale ambiance of the Resegone crest and Grigne Mountain Group that have inspired artists such as Italian poet, Alessandro Manzoni and French writer, Stendhal. Restaurants provide delectable local favorites shaped by the features of the meadows and terraces, from polenta with goat cheese to indulgent steaks and stews. The bell tower casts a shadow over the waterfront along the edges of Piazza XX Settembre, leading you on a welcoming stroll along the narrow lanes to find the 14th-century Visconti Bridge, one of the oldest monuments in town.
