Guided Tour Details
There will be bus transfer from the hotel to the pier in Cernobbio. The 6-hour tour consist of stops to:
  • Villa Carlotta where the group visits the 17th century Villa and the gardens of the Clerici family who were successful silk merchants for more than 200 years before Anton Clerici blew the family fortune.
  • The 1500 year-old municipality of Varenna where the group will be able to purchase something quick to eat from local stands or restaurants or sit and relax and have a glass of wine. While in Varenna, the Tour will also visit Villa Monastero. The unusual Villa dates to the 1200’s and served as a convent before being renovated in a Nordic style.
  • The Pearl of Lake Como, the municipality of Bellagio where the group will have free time for shopping and touring.
