    Itinerary

    Enjoy a special night!

    What is more romantic than an aperitivo on board of a private Venetian watertaxi while cruising the coasts of Lake Como? Well… disembarking at a gourmet lakefront restaurant in Varenna where you will be served a delicious dinner!

    You will meet your taxi boat captain in Varenna at 6.30 pm.

    During the cruise on board our open top Venetian watertaxi, while enjoying some Prosecco, you will admire the spectacular mountains and the stunning villas, from Villa Carlotta, to Villa Melzi in Bellagio to Villa del Balbianello. Some description and information will be provided in English by the captain.

    At the end of the cruise the motorboat will leave you in Varenna at the dock leading directly to the gourmet restaurant, where you will be served a full dinner, including an appetizer, one first course, one second course and dessert, based on the restaurant’s Tasting Menu designed by the chef.

    The price will include water and one glass of wine. Any further drink or anything not included in the menu will need to be paid as an extra to the restaurant.

     

    As this is a private tour, please let us know which is your hotel in the central part of the lake: we will be glad to pick you up at the hotel dock!
