Live the experience of a day excursion on Lake Como, Italy's most popular lake and also its deepest; shaped like an inverted Y giving it a long perimeter, it is always considered one of the most beautiful Italian landscapes, surrounded by mountains and hills and enhanced with beautiful villas and typical villages, which alternate on the banks with the incredible panorama of the Alps in the distance.

Itinerary

10.00 a.m.
Head towards the pier and ready to embark on a private water taxi. There is no better opportunity to admire the beauty of the area and surrender from the tale of the guide, while the view extends from the shore, where there are monuments, churches and sumptuous villas, to the slopes, on which climb ancient countries and chapels, and to the tops of the mountains, on which open pastures with shelters. From board you will see Villa La Rotonda, Villa Gallia, Villa Parravicini, Villa Mondolfo and Villa Olmo, Villa Geno, Villa Belvedere, Villa D'Este, Villa Pizzo, Villa Versace, Villa Balbianello...all wonderful.
11.30 a.m.
You will arrive in the center lake in Tremezzo to visit Villa Carlotta, now a museum, and its lovely botanical garden, famous for its spring flowering camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas, and praised by famous writers, makes us understand the importance of Lake Como in the past.
12:30 p.m.
Again on board of your private water taxi, you will be ready for the return to Como along the east coast of the lake and the main villas that adorn this side.
Once in Como, possible guided walking tour of the city for about 60 mins, during which will be given special attention to the medieval part and you will enter the court Bazzi house, the oldest house in Como.

Notes:
If you are looking for a full day experience, after Villa Carlotta, we suggest to get to Bellagio, the so called pearl of the lake, a village characterized by century-old buildings, stone lanes and picturesque cobbled stairways filled with shops showcasing the finest Italian wares. Lunch on your own with our best suggestions as needed.
After lunch, guided tour of Bellagio, walking on the typical stairways lined with elegant shops up to the Roman Basilica of St. James, then along the lake reaching the extraordinary romantic park of Villa Melzi d'Eril. At the end enjoy free time for shopping, photographs ...
