Full description

Have the best of both worlds on this full-day tour of Switzerland and Italy. Departing from Como, travel in a comfortable coach to the Swiss town of Lugano where you will have some free time to visit the picturesque city center, taste some Swiss Chocolate and have lunch. After lunch, head to the small village of Cadenabbia, where both Queen Victoria of England and Zar Nicholas of Russia were frequent visitors.

From there, take a panoramic cruise to reach Bellagio, also known as the “Pearl of Lake Como”. Disembarking in Bellagio, enjoy some free time to soak up the laid-back atmosphere of this idyllic and relaxing place. Later, board a ferry boat and get the opportunity to see the incredible Lake Como from a different perspective. During the cruise, take your time to look around and see the harmony between nature and architecture as you drift past villas with their beauteous gardens amongst untouched nature.

Good activity, we took it from Como, we went to Lugano in a comfortable bus. Sample guide Simona was very friendly with fluency in both Spanish and English. Then we went to Bellagio by ferry (you have to obey the guide on the schedules at the access points and we almost missed the transport). Time in Bellagio is very short. We had to choose between having lunch and getting to know the town and that there are long lines everywhere. The guided part should be Bellagio and not the return by ferry to Como, since the villas on the lake do not require further explanation beyond the gossip of knowing who they are. On the other hand, it may be interesting to have more in-depth information about Bellagio or even about Lugano.

This trip was a brilliant way to spend a day and see the most beautiful scenery possible within a short period of time. Andrea, the guide for the day, was extremely knowledgeable and got to know each person on the tour individually in order to direct his explanations and knowledge towards your interests or background etc. He even went out of his way to make sure I practiced my Italian with him and provided recommendations in the local area for places to eat on my partner's birthday. A superb guide. Despite having an unfortunate day where it rained in mid-August (take an umbrella just in case, the weather can change quickly), we thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip and there was sufficient free time in both Lugano and Bellagio. Both the coach journey and boat trips provide for some stunning scenery. A highly recommended trip if you are looking to maximise your experience over a short period in this beautiful part of the world.

Excellent day spent visiting Lugano, Bellagio and boat tour around Lac Como . Andrea was a wonderful guide. He was extremely knowledgeable , funny and answered all our questions. He made a point to connect with all of us and offered other activities to try while in the area. What a fun way to spend a day in Lac Como. Well worth it.
