Get to the heart of Lake Como with private excursions and knowledgeable guides as they show you a deeper side to this immaculate pocket of north Italy
On the face of it, holidays in Lake Como are all about classic cars racing along peachy-coloured roads, Italianate gardens that look like they’ve ripped from the pages of a magazine, and the jet set bronzing themselves on yachts. But with the help of a local guide our escorted group tours can also give you the chance to really get to the heart of this sun-kissed playground for the rich and famous, and you can look forward to private guided tours of two of Lake Como’s most famous towns, Bellagio and Varenna; visiting grand villas and their manicured gardens; and stopping by the Italian city of Chiavenna for wine tastings in a cellar. You’ll travel by boat and road as well by train on one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys – the Bernina Express, one of Switzerland’s world-famous mountain trains.
