What to expect

Enjoy a full day guided tour discovering the pearls of the mid-lake area, all accompanied with tasting of delicious local products.

The tour starts with the sampling of olive oil at an original mill, with tastings of local cheese, cold cuts and wine, after which you will explore Varenna, a 45 minutes walking tour followed by lunch in a top quality slow food lakefront restaurant.

After lunch, you will relax on a private motorboat cruise, admiring the spectacular mountains and the stunning villas and stop for a guided tour at Villa del Balbianello, a real gem not to be missed.

Afterwards, our motorboat will bring you to Bellagio, where you shall be guided through the wonderful Villa Melzi gardens, followed by a stroll along the lakeside.

The tour will end at approximately 5:30 pm in this world-renowned village, where you are highly recommended to stop for a romantic happy hour or dinner. Our tour guide will suggest the best restaurants and cafes in the area.
