What to expect

Take time out from ogling the luxury villas around Lake Como and treat yourself to a morning of regional food tasting and city sights instead.
In a small group, you’ll discover the best locally loved eateries around the city and you'll have the chance to try traditional products and wine that you won’t commonly find in tourist restaurants. Also, you'll get to learn about the city and its landmarks as you explore and soak up the amazing views of the lake from the Lungolago promenade.
After a short walk through the city center, your guide will walk you in Villa Geno, located in the heart of Como and next to the famous fountain with a 30-meter high water jet, immersed in a unique naturalistic complex. Upon returning from Viale Geno, you'll be taken to the Brunate funicular that will lift you to the top: here, you can enjoy an enchanting view of the lake and the Alps and, inside a local restaurant, you'll taste a number the ancient recipes of Como such as Cutizza and Polenta Taragna.
