Day at leisure

After a leisurely breakfast overlooking the lake, the day is ours to explore further. Our hotel is centrally located and the towns of Bellagio, Varenna and Menagio are all easily reached by local bus or ferry from the hotel.

Or if preferred, we can take advantage of the hotels facilities and spend the day sitting out overlooking the beautiful lake sipping a coffee or cocktail!

The choice is yours!

Visit Milan

After breakfast we board our coach to Milan. We meet our walking guide who will show us around this relatively small city centre, making it perfect to see by foot. Milan is known as a financial capital, a fashion powerhouse and a city that offers beautiful architecture. We will take in the highlights as part of our tour including the impressive Milan Cathedral, one of the largest churches in the world. We will also visit the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which is Italy’s oldest active shopping gallery and a major landmark of Milan, Italy.

Our afternoon is at leisure to perhaps do a spot of shopping or if shopping is not for you then you can visit Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
