You cannot leave Lake Como without having visited its “pearl” and its “diamond”: Bellagio and Varenna. Bellagio is a one-of-a-kind location, also thanks to its position: from there, one can embrace the horizon almost completely! After visiting it, you will do a fantastic boat tour on the centre of the lake, where the views will leave you breathless. You will reach Varenna, a suggestive fishing hamlet to visit slow, walking romantically along the lakeside. Our driver will takes you to the Castle of Vezio, situated on top of the hill behind the village. This Castle will take you back in time with its unique atmosphere. Cross the old drawbridge and be ready for a medieval adventure! You may also climb up the tower to enjoy a 360-degrees view, one of the best panoramas of Lake Como. In the middle of the beautiful olive garden of the Castle or on the beautiful terrace overlooking the lake, you will have a rich aperitif with local products.

Stop At: Bellagio

You will have free time to spend in the beautiful town of Bellagio. Bellagio is the perfect mix of photogenic streets, small shops, wonderful restaurants, and gorgeous views across Lake Como. Bellagio is small and compact. Many of the roads are pedestrian only, perfect for strolling and exploring. From the waterfront, narrow, cobblestoned streets and walking paths lead uphill through town. From the tops of these streets you get picture-perfect views over the rooftops to Lake Como. Since the town is so small, you can explore Bellagio in an hour.

Heading up the sloping alleys from the lake you'll come to the town's main piazza and the lake-shore road. The square is dominated by Varenna's principal church, the fourteenth-century Chiesa di San Giorgio, which features frescoes both inside and out - a large image of St. Christopher is painted on the facade.
