Location

Lombardi, Italy

Lake Como, in Northern Italy’s Lombardy region, is an upscale resort area known for its dramatic scenery, set against the foothills of the Alps. The lake is shaped like an upside-down Y, with three slender branches that meet at the resort town of Bellagio. At the bottom of the southwest branch lies the city of Como, home to Renaissance architecture and a funicular that travels up to the mountain town of Brunate.


The main access to the lake is from Milan and Bergamo. It is also possible to cross the border from Lugano (Switzerland), and arriving at the lake at Menaggio. In the North, the lake can be accessed through the Splügen pass (closed from end of autumn to the beginning of spring), or from St. Moritz, both entering from Switzerland.

Food

A delicious and hearty breakfast is included daily at the location. Fresh fruits and juices, coffee, pastries and savory items. Italian breakfasts are simply the best. Four special dinners are included on your holiday.

Get ready to enjoy the local specialties of fresh fish, risotto, polenta, meats and heavenly cheeses.
