Guided day tour from Milan to Lake Como (with visits to Como, Brunate and Basilica San Abbondio)

Lake Como is one of the three main lakes in the Italian Lake District, with the others being Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore. While the latter are more grand, Lake Como is a peaceful lake with a woodland backdrop that creates a sense of peace and tranquility that has been known to attract famous faces, including George Clooney and Madonna.

Popular destinations surrounding the lake are Colico, Como, Lecco, Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna, which have many villas and palaces, such as Villa Olmo, Villa Serbelloni and Villa Carlotta, to enjoy. This tour gives you a chance to visit the city of Como and take a breath-taking boat trip on Lake Como whilst admiring the beautiful villas. We highly recommend adding it your Milan package booked through us if you are eager to explore the diversity of Italian culture and landscape.
