Porta Garibaldi, Milano MI, Italy

Departure Time

8:30 AM
Depart from central Milan and journey toward the Italian Alps by coach. After a relaxing drive, arrive in Lake Como for your cruise.

Marvel at the luxury real estate while you glide along the water, passing glamorous, celebrity-owned villas. Learn about some of the famous properties from your guide, and hear about the area’s history. Return to land to purchase lunch and discover the picturesque town of Bellagio on your own.

Afterward, reunite with your driver and continue over the Swiss border to the Italian-speaking town of Lugano. Soak up additional time here to explore independently, browsing the local shops for Swiss chocolate, fine luxury goods, and clothes, or checking out the scene by the lake. For a little art and culture, admire Bernardino Luini’s Renaissance masterpiece, 'Passion and Crucifixion,' with a visit to the Chiesa di Santa Maria degli Angioli.

After a full day of sightseeing, return to Milan with your guide in the late afternoon.

Thank you Katerina and Simone such a great day visiting all the sites . The meeting point was central and easy to get to . Loved the fact we had free time to explore on our own and the restaurant recommendation in Bellagio was excellent. The food was amazing and so was the service. Highly recommend this tour you will not be disappointed.

We had a tour person that tried really hard to speak English. It was still difficult to understand her. The other tour person that was on the bus with us was great!!! She had a great personality and excellent knowledge of the area. I would recommend this tour to others.

Our day started well when we arrived at the meeting point to see a number of City Wonders employees efficiently sorting everyone into different groups for this tour. It felt very organised, and this is how it would feel for the rest of the day. Katerina is a very friendly guide, and her lunch recommendation was top notch, as was her recommendation for buying chocolate at Lugano (Switzerland). The locations we visited were stunning. Some might argue that the cruise on Lake Como itself wasn't necessary; however it depends on whether or not you're interested in knowing which celebrities own which lakeside houses.
