Lakeside dining, guided walks and Switzerland’s world-famous mountain train, escorted tours are wonderful ways to explore the Italian Lakes
It’s all about the lakeside living in this part of Italy, where days are spent drinking crisp white wine by the water, strolling the gardens of famous villas, and exploring fisherman’s houses, charming cafés, Michelin-starred restaurants and family-run gelaterias before retiring to the hotel as the sun sets over the lake. With so much history, beauty and culture to behold, a guided tour of the most beautiful and famous lakes of the north, including Lake Como and Lake Lugano, is the best way to make the most of your time here. You’ll be shown the sights by a knowledgeable guide and there will be a full day where you get to do your own thing, giving you the freedom to explore the area at your own pace. For those who like the scenic route, a highlight is the trip on the Bernina Express, one of Switzerland’s world-famous mountain trains.
