Either before or after seeing The Last Supper, you'll make the 90 minute ride to world-famous Lake Como and the charming town of Bellagio.
Surrounded by the majestic limestone and granite foothills of the Alps, romantic Lake Como is known for its beautiful and dramatic landscapes. A boat ride on the lake will provide a spectacular view of the entire area, including the town of Bellagio, rising from the Lake's rocky shores. Bellagio is known as the "Pearl of Lake Como" for its lavish villas and fabulous gardens and is one of the most beloved landscapes in all of Italy.
Disembarking from the boat, you'll climb the stone stairways and find yourself on Bellagio's main street, paved with cobblestones and filled with shops offering Italy's finest wares. Your guide will be happy to make some recommendations for lunch, perhaps at a cafe with a view of Lake Como.
After lunch, you may choose to browse the shops and streets of Bellagio or see the Villa Melzi d' Eril along the shores of Lake Como. This wonderful example of Neo-classical architecture is now a museum with magnificent gardens reaching Lake Como's shore.
You might also wish to take a 10 minute ferry ride to Tremezzo to see the Villa Carlotta. A sprawling 17th century estate, Villa Carlotta is overflowing with artistic masterpieces, intricate wrought iron, fountains and stunning manicured gardens.
