The tour will begin with your private driver collecting you from your hotel in Milan (or another custom location the area) with a luxury sedan or minivan. Within an hour, you will reach Lake Como and continue driving along the panoramic lake road SS340 until your first tour stop: Villa Balbianello. You will start a guided visit of the one-of-a-kind Villa facing on the beautiful coast of the Lake.

The property was lastly owned by the Italian explorer and philanthropist Guido Monzino, who donated the building and gardens to the FAI (National Trust of Italy).The Villa now hosts an extremely beautiful, rich and complete museum of Monzino’s expeditions and also includes many art masterpieces of his collection. More recently the property was used as movie-set for James Bond: Casino Royale and StarWars: II Episode films.

You will then proceed with a car-ferry ride that arrives to the famous town of Bellagio. After that, you can enjoy some free lunch-time in town with a stunning panorama, shop at world-class stores and admire the centuries-old architecture.

Yesterday we had an incredible day on Lake Como, too bad we have to fly back home! Everything was great, our driver Giuseppe was very nice and gave us a lot of information during the drive.
