Boat cruise around the Lake Como and the stop over at Belligao.

The tour director made the trip very interesting and fun fact based. When I visit Milan again, I will definitely take this tour excursion again.

Wonderful day to Lake Como

This was a great day out from Milan especially as we got sunny weather to enjoy the amazing views! A comfortable ItalyXP coach left on time and our very pleasant and patient guide called Beatrice was informative and a great communicator (in both English and Spanish). After just one hour drive we reached Como where we had one hour to explore the town. Then it was onto a 2-hour ferry boat on Lake Como where the scenery is never boring, in fact it is breathtakingly lovely. We enjoyed shopping and dining in Bellagio, the jewel of Lake Como, where we had a two-hour stopover. Then after a 15-minute crossing by boat, we were whisked back to Milan again on our coach. We considered the experience to be great value for money. It just couldn't have been any better.
