Italy and Switzerland in One Day: Lake Como and Lugano from Milan

Select Date and Travelers
From
US$114.00
Date
2 travelers
Overview
Discover what makes the Italian Alps a favorite vacation destination for the rich and famous. Just an hour outside Milan, stunning lakes, fabulous villas and charming Alpine towns await – and you can experience them all in one blissful day. Cruise beautiful Lake Como in comfort. Enjoy free time in Bellagio, the “pearl of Lake Como”. Then cross the border to visit Lugano, “the Monte Carlo of Switzerland”.
Highlights
  • Visit Como, Italy, and Lugano, Switzerland, in one day
  • Get out of the lakeside towns and onto the water on a Lake Como cruise
  • Have enough time to explore Bellagio and Lugano independently
  • Hassle-free, round-trip transportation from Milan 
What to Expect
Your morning starts with pickup from central Milan by air-conditioned coach. After the drive to Como, board a boat for a lake cruise. Take advantage of the two hours spent cruising the water by snapping photos of glamorous villas and listening to guide commentary about the Como area.
Next, enjoy free time and lunch (at own expense) in Bellagio, a pretty waterfront town of stone staircases and cobbled lanes also known as “the pearl of Lake Como.” Afterward, reboard the coach for the roughly 40-minute journey across the Swiss border to Lugano, a picturesque small city on the northern shore of a glacial lake. Explore independently: choosing to browse Swiss chocolate and luxury goods shops, walk along the waterfront, or visit religious sites like the Chiesa di Santa Maria degli Angioli.
Your day ends with drop-off at the original departure point in the late afternoon.
