Day 2: Lake Como
Meet your local guide for a half-day private boat cruise on Lake Como, Europe’s deepest lake. Stop in the delightful village of Bellagio, an old retreat for the nobility of Lombardy, and visit the elegant Villa Carlotta at Tremezzo with its beautiful gardens. The gardens of Villa Carlotta are worth a visit any time of the year. They feature old varieties of camellias, century-old cedars and sequoias, the rock garden and the ferns valley, the rhododendrons wood and the bamboos garden. All offer wonderful views of the lake.
Day 3: Lake Como/Milan/Lake Como
Drive to Milan, where you meet your local guide for a day in the city. View da Vinci's newly restored Last Supper in the refectory of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Visit the flamboyant, colossal Gothic Cathedral and the Brera Gallery. Housed in a 17th-century palace, the Brera Gallery was built for the Jesuits and is considered Milan’s most formidable art museum. You do not want to miss the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and La Scala Opera House. Take a break from your sightseeing and join your guide for coffee and pastries at a historic pasticceria. The Caffe Cova is located in the city’s most elegant districts, and oozes old world charm and sophistication—and has been doing so for nearly 200 years.
