Chic Lake Como

Inc. boats to Varenna and Villa Balbianello, guided tour of Villa and Gardens.

Wordsworth described Lake Como as “a treasure which the earth keeps to itself”. It is not simply the natural beauty of the mountain-framed waters of Como that is so attractive; it is the sophisticated ambience of the towns and villages that hug its shores. No wonder Mr and Mrs Clooney choose to live here! We catch ferries across the lakes on two of the days and on another we visit Lake Lugano in Switzerland. This   tour operated for the first time in 2017 and was a huge success.

Tours whilst at resort
