    The beauty of Lake Como lies not only in the water and mountains scenery, but also in its small waterfront towns: decades of towns some of which definitely off the crowd. With this half-day tour, we’ll explore a bit further than the Bellagio area, leaving you time to get back to your hotel and linger by the pool.

    We will hop on a Venetian watertaxi because you’ll agree this is by any means the most elegant, relaxing and most of the times fastest way to explore the area. And of course there will be an expert tour guide with you: they will add a lot of info and enrich your experience with local tips which you will love to hear!

    You will meet our tour guide and private watertaxi at the pier nearest to you: we will be able to pick you up in Bellagio, Varenna, Tremezzo, Menaggio and other towns in the central lake area.

    Enjoy a cruise in front of the fascinating town of Varenna: the ideal location to take beautiful pictures.

    Cruise north along the shore to reach Bellano, a small town well-known to locals: walk along its narrow streets and stop to visit its natural gorge, called Orrido in Italian. Believe us, it will be amazing!

    Our watertaxi will cruise you in the waters in front of Bellano, showing you Villa La Gaeta, known for having been the set for Casino Royale and then will reach Menaggio, one of the pearls of Lake Como. This beautiful town is one of our favorites, not only for the beautiful view you get of both Varenna and Bellagio but also for its history and its slow paced center.

    Whatever you prefer doing, our guide will be there to suggest the best place to relax and eat gelato or sip a Spritz or a glass of local wine.

    Our watertaxi will then transfer you back to departure location
