Day 1 | Arrival
Day 2 | Lake Maggiore & Borromean Islands
Experience the breath-taking beauty of Lake Maggiore and its Borromean Islands. Start in Stresa, located on the eastern shores. Stroll along the promenade, admiring the marvellous Belle-èpoque architecture, blossoming flowers and lake views. Then take a private boat to Isola Bella, which will impress you with Baroque palace and lush gardens. The boat will then take you to the neighbouring sliver of an island, Isola dei Pescatori, which proudly displays its humble fishing village beginnings. After some time to enjoy the historic town, return by boat to Stresa..
Day 3 | Boat ride on Lake Como to Tremezzo and Bellagio
The town of Como, centre of an ancient silk industry and built on the shores of the lake is the first port of call on today’s programme. It's renowned for its lush gardens ablaze with flowers. But, to fully enjoy the lake, make sure you explore by boat – most of the sights are best seen from the water. With a relaxing boat ride on Lake Como to Tremezzo and Bellagio, you will experience the breath-taking scenery of the attractive villas that have been built there since Roman times and villas of the rich and famous who have homes in this areas.
Day 4 | Picturesque boat ride on Lake Orta to San Giulio
Lake Orta is considered an insider tip, the smallest pre-Alpine lake. The picturesque hilly landscape, in which small villages are embedded, radiates peace and quiet and enchants with its Mediterranean flair. In the village of Orta, located on the shores of the lake, you will wind across the old market square and through the narrow, medieval alleyways and along the way see romantic, secluded gardens. You will reach the island of San Giulio by boat, there you can visit the oldest church of this region. In the interior you will find precious frescoes dating back to the Renaissance.
