Please note: This tour starts from the meeting point. Most guests will not need a visa to enter. However, a passport is mandatory to enter Switzerland. Please make sure you check your visa requirements. It is the responsibility of all visitors to ensure they check the official travel advice on the government websites. The duration of the boat ride may vary in summer season and winter season.
This tour involves a fair amount of walking; comfortable shoes are recommended. Not suitable for guests with reduced mobility.
No strollers or baby carriages are allowed. Entrance into religious sites requires a strict dress code: knees and shoulders must be covered for both men and women. The tour operator cannot be held responsible for refused entry due to improper dress. Photography is generally permitted throughout the tour, although it is restricted in some churches. Please be advised that in the case of events beyond control, the local tour operator may need to adjust the itinerary to ensure the safety, quality, and satisfaction of your travel experience. On Sundays this day trip takes you to Varenna instead of Lugano. Lugano's shops and restaurants are typically closed on Sundays, so this change to the itinerary ensures you enjoy an equally delightful experience.

The first destination on your great escape is Como, where we will board a boat for a 2-hour cruise along the lake. This is a unique opportunity to admire the breathtaking landscapes and see villas of the rich and famous all around the lake. Lake Como is a famous holiday destination for stars and celebrities, and during the cruise, your guide will point out former George Clooneys villa, plus villas that once hosted Star Wars and James Bond movie sets.

During this relaxing cruise, you will have time to enjoy a drink or a snack at the bar and restaurant on the boat.

Next, we reach the famous city of Bellagio, the 'pearl of Lake Como'. Once in Bellagio you will have free time to enjoy the town and do some shopping. Then, you will get on the coach to continue your journey to Lugano.

In less than an hour, we will pass the Italian border and arrive in Switzerland. We will take a scenic drive to the foot of the Alps and the 'Monte Carlo of Switzerland'. The spectacular Lugano is located on the beautiful lake of the same name. This Italian-speaking town is one of Switzerlands top tourist destinations and favorite playgrounds for celebrities, athletes, and entertainers. If you crave artistic culture, take a relaxing walk through town to Santa Maria degli Angioli Church. It is here where Bernardino Luini, whose works were often mistaken for Leonardo Da Vincis, painted his Passion and Crucifixion, largely considered to be Switzerlands most important Renaissance painting.

Would you rather explore the elegant city center? No problem! Make your way over to the beautiful downtown shopping area, brimming with inviting shops, rich Swiss chocolate, and fine luxury goods. The choice is yours.

After that, the bus will take you back to Milans city center in time for dinner. Experience the highlights of Northern Italy and Switzerland on this flexible and relaxing Lake Como and Bellagio Day Trip from Milan, including Lugano.
