    Itinerary

    Pick up will be at your Lake Como hotel by a private driver; your tour guide will also meet you there. Once in Lugano, take a stroll in the old town with its elegant boutiques, visit the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli with Luini’s fresco and enter a local well known shop of Maitre Chocolatiers for a small tasting and, why not, delicious shopping. Walk along the waterfront and the lush public gardens of Parco Ciani.

    Before lunch take the funicular up to Monte Bre, an altitude of about 900 metres will give you the chance for a superb view of the Lake and of the Alps. Here we shall book you à la carte lunch at Ristorante Vetta (not included).

    Later in the afternoon your private driver and tour guide will lead you back to Lake Como to relax at your hotel.

     

    Important info: We cross the Swiss border- you will need your passport!
