What to expect

Two of the area's most enchanting cities will be discovered on this full day tour. You'll spend the morning exploring the historic centre of Como, then cross the border into Switzerland where Lugano will charm with its lakeside setting. A boat trip along the lake back to Italy will round off the tour.

Bursting with grand architecture, artwork and gardens, the two cities make for a fascinating day out. You'll head to Como first and your guide will introduce you to the city on a short guided walk starting in Piazza Cavour, which overlooks the lake, to Piazza Duomo, flanked by the Torre del Comune. Enjoy strolling around its quaint streets and soaking up its grand ambience.

For the second part of your day, you'll visit the elegant Swiss lakeside city of Lugano. You'll amble down promenades decorated with flowers, sculptures and fountains. Then complete the experience with an hour-long scenic cruise along Lake Lugano back to Porlezza in Italy.
