Escape the hustle and bustle of Milan for a relaxing tour of the countryside of northern Italy and southern Switzerland, traveling in air-conditioned comfort in groups of no more than 25 people. Relax as you take in Alpine views, and see stunning lakes and villas.
The first destination on your great escape is Como, where you will board a boat for a 2-hour cruise along the Lake. This is a unique opportunity to admire the breathtaking landscapes, and see villas of the rich and famous all around the lake. Lake Como is a famous holiday destination for stars and celebrities, and during the cruise your guide will point out George Clooney’s and Richard Branson’s villas, plus villas that once hosted Star Wars and James Bond movie sets.
Next, you will reach the famous city of Bellagio, "The Pearl of Lake Como”. Once in Bellagio you will have free time to enjoy the town and do some shopping, or just relax and eat some local food in the most nostalgic bars and restaurants of the city. Once you have had a chance to take some photos and enjoy the town’s charming atmosphere, you will board a motor coach to continue your journey to Lugano.
In less than an hour, you will pass the Italian boarder and arrive in Switzerland. Take a scenic drive to the foot of the Alps and the “Monte Carlo of Switzerland”. Featuring breathtaking panoramas and excellent shopping opportunities, it is a destination you do not want to miss. If you are craving artistic culture, take a relaxing walk through town to Santa Maria degli Angioli. For a spot of retail therapy, make your way over to the beautiful downtown shopping area, brimming with inviting shops, rich Swiss chocolate, and fine luxury goods. The choice is yours. After that, the bus will take you back to Milan’s city center in time for dinner.
