    Pick-up will be at your hotel in Milan, Lake Maggiore or other destinations.

    Our aim for the day is let you experience the best of Lake Como: a mix of beauty and scenic views. We will for sure include a private cruise by watertaxi and a stop at one of the beautiful villas enriched by their botanical gardens. Some time to wander round Bellagio, Varenna or Como or all of these.

    This day can be customised based on your choice.

    Here are 2 options which we suggest considering:


    A full day on a watertaxi to experience the very best of Lake Como while cruising. Suggested transfer from your hotel to Como to start the day by watertaxi. At the end of the 7 hours tour on the lake, we strongly suggest you stop in Como for some free time, to relax enjoying an aperitivo or even an early dinner before our driver takes you back to your hotel.


    A tour which concentrates on the mid lake area, with some nice and local food experience in Varenna in the morning before enjoying cruising and visiting Villa del Balbianello and Bellagio by watertaxi. Our driver will transfer you to Varenna to start the tour in the morning. The tour will end in Bellagio where we strongly suggest you stop for some free time, to relax enjoying an aperitivo or even an early dinner before our driver takes you back to your hotel. This tour is also reachable by train from Milan.

    These options are further customisable based on your needs. Just Ask!
