This is a great opportunity to see three of the most beautiful lakes in two countries! To the north of Lake Maggiore you will pass the mystical floating castles of Cannero whilst travelling towards the snow-capped peaks of the Swiss Alps and across to Lake Lugano. Lugano city nestles between the peaks of San Salvatore and Monte Bré and looks out over the celestial blue waters of the Lake. You’ll head for the Palazzo Civico to feel the hustle and bustle of the city centre - this area is brimming with restaurants and boutiques.
Lake Como has to be one of the most spectacular lakes in Italy with its sparkling waters surrounded by dramatic mountains. Here, you’ll have the option to visit Villa Carlotta where every ceiling is a masterpiece of frescoes the gardens house over 500 species from giant sequoia to camellias. Como itself is a modern city steeped in history. See the 14th century Cathedral or hunt out for some bargains in the vast array of silk shops.
