Detailed Description

Italy’s Lake Como is synonymous with luxury, beauty, relaxation, and is the ideal destination for a couple’s trip. Your luxurious, 7-day journey will begin the moment that you land at Malpensa Airport in Milan. A one night stay in the intriguing city of Milan will be the perfect way to start your trip, and your visit will be highlighted with a private tour of the world-famous La Scala Opera House. While you traverse the main stage of the auditorium, you will admire the lavish decor and furnishings. There will be time to seek out your first delicious dinner after the tour concludes, and then you will return to the opera house for an unforgettable opera performance. The following day, it will be time to set your sights on Lake Como for the balance of your vacation. A private transfer will escort you to the first lakeside destination of the city of Como, and an exclusive tour of the city that is complete with a romantic, lakeside dinner will immerse you in the lifestyle of the area. On day three, you will journey to the nearby town of Cernobbio, where you will explore its gorgeous villas and marvel at its spectacular views of the lake.

After breakfast, on the morning of day four, you will depart Como in luxurious boat and cruise across Lake Como toward your next destination of Argegno. Along the way, you will stop in Nesso for a private tour, and as you stroll around the cobblestoned roads of the charming village, you will come upon the scenic Nesso Gorge, which is a true marvel of nature. The sight of the gorge, along with Nesso’s awe-inspiring waterfall and picturesque stone bridge, will make your visit to the village special and memorable. Once your tour concludes, you will return to the boat to continue your journey to Argegno. Argegno is another scenic lakeside village, which will provide more impressive views of Lake Como in addition to many amazing experiences. On the morning of day five, you will explore the village on a private tour, during which, you will witness an ancient church with beautiful mosaic details and the age-old Roman Bridge. You will also be provided with the exclusive opportunity to ride a cable car from Argegno to the village of Pigra, where you will be treated to breathtaking views of the surrounding area. After this delightful visit, you will return to the private boat to set off across the lake to your final Lake Como destination of Bellagio.

In the afternoon of day five, you will arrive in the breathtaking village of Bellagio, and your first evening in this famous and sought after destination will be at your leisure. You can begin to discover Bellagio hand-in-hand as you dine on a delicious dinner and discover some of the town’s exquisite landscape. The following day you will be further immersed in the culture of Bellagio on a guided tour that will have you visiting the different neighborhoods of the village and journeying around its scenic roads. From the fishing area of Pescallo to the ancient fishing boats that are on display in Loppia, you will indulge in all that Bellagio has to offer. Later in the day, you will transfer to one of Bellagio’s top-rated restaurants for an exclusive and private wine tasting. The restaurant’s executive chef and sommelier will lead you on a tour of the cellar before allowing you to sample multiple tasty blends. After the last sip of wine and bite of sharp Italian cheese, you will return to the hotel, where you can enjoy the balance of your final evening in Bellagio together. On the morning of day seven, a private transfer will lead you back to Milan’s Malpensa Airport for your return flight. You will leave Italy enchanted by the beauty of Lake Como, knowing that everything about your trip was imbued with lifelong memories.
