Itinerary

Day 1, Lake Como
Arrive in your base, a charming town on the shores of the lake. Fast ferries run regularly from Como city and take approximately 1 hour.

Day 2, Lake Como
This morning, you'll take a lakeside walk heading north along the western shore towards Switzerland. Starting with a steep climb up to the town's ruined castle, the path levels out, passing through forests and villages, following a stone medieval path that winds above the lake with breathtaking views over the lake and the mountains on the eastern shore. The walk finishes in a pretty lake side town, where you'll be able to have lunch and get either a train or ferry back to your base. (B)

Day 3, Lake Como
Today, you will be provided with details (opening information, ferry timetables etc) to visit two of the finest villas and gardens on the lake that can be easily reached by beautiful short ferry rides (25 minutes). The first villa was built in the 17th century and hosted Napoleon but is most famous for its spectacular lawns and rhododendron gardens. The second (2 ferry stops further on) is on the tip of forested promontory surrounded by English gardens and enormous views up and down the lake - it was built around a 14th century abbey and is famous for the extraordinary collections of its last owner, a man of great wealth who was also the first Italian to climb Mt Everest. It is a very pleasant 45-minute ferry ride back to your base from here. (B)

Day 4, Lake Como
Today's walk is a loop walk up into the mountains on the eastern of the lake. This spectacular walk follows old smugglers paths and takes you up into oak forests that open on to farmlands and orchards filled with grazing cows with bells, with breath-taking views across Lake Lugano. You take an ancient cobbled path back down to the lake where you started from.

Day 5, Lake Como
Today, transfer to Bellagio, a 10-minute ferry ride across the lake (your bags will be privately delivered to the second hotel), your base for the next two nights. In the afternoon you can do an interesting walk takes you around the Bellagio promontory visiting the two branches of the lake, passing through fishing villages and past handsome 8th and 19th century villas before returning to Bellagio, finishing at the beautiful gardens of Villa Melzi that graces the edge of the town.
