The Lake Como day trip departs daily at 8.30 am from April to October and most days at 9 am from November to March.
What It Is
Only 1 hour from the busy cosmopolitan city of Milan is the natural gem, Lake Como. Framed by the snow-capped peaks of the Italian Alps but benefiting from a pleasant Mediterranean climate, it's really no wonder that people are drawn to the picturesque towns which occupy its banks.
This full day tour from Milan will show you the highlights of the region; meeting in the city centre you'll travel by coach to the lakeside city of Como where your tour guide can show you to the impressive gothic style Cathedral, St Abbondio. You'll have time to visit one of the city's museums, enjoy fresh fish in a local restaurant or shop for silk souvenirs.
During the summer months your day tour will include a 2-hour boat cruise on Lake Como and stop at Bellagio Island. In the winter you will instead cruise for 1 hour, return to Como to board the funicular railway to the town of Brunate.
