DAY 1: Grand Tour of Milan
Discover Milan, the city that will host the Olympic village in 2026. For this first part of the day, we have designed an eco-friendly tour on board a panoramic double-decker bus. Let yourself be captivated by the efficiency and modernity of the city, get off when you want and take time to stroll along the Navigli, in fact, throughout the day you can get on and off the bus as many times as you like. Bad weather? We've thought of that too: you can enjoy the tour regardless of the weather. For lunch we recommend tasting the typical Milanese risotto or ossobuco in some restaurant with a view of the Duomo Terrace.
In the afternoon we will meet near Piazza del Duomo for a guided tour of the historic centre: we will enter the Duomo and admire its façade, walk through the fascinating Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with its 19th-century crystal vaults, and visit the Scala Theatre and Museum. We will see the Castello Sforzesco and last but not least, you will have guaranteed, queue-free access to the Last Supper, Leonardo da Vinci's UNESCO-listed masterpiece.
After a fine feast of art, it's time for free time to do some shopping on Milan's fashion streets or a stroll through the tree-lined avenues of city life.
Lunch and dinner free, overnight stay on request.
DAY 2: Day at Lake Como and Bellagio in private group
Discover Lake Como in the beautiful Lake District, a short distance from Milan. Nestled between the immense snow-capped Alps, it is here that the town of Como rises above the lake. The tour continues with a 2-hour lake cruise. Admire the lakeside villas and keep an eye on Villa d'Este in Cernobbio, a luxurious hotel set in tropical gardens. During the tour you can dock at the town of Bellagio, one of the most famous towns on the lake, follow the steep alleys up from the lake and stop for a coffee or ice cream in one of the lively cafés stop for a coffee or an ice cream in one of the lively cafés housed in large historic buildings. Spend some time at ease here before a cruise to Cadenabbia and return to your coach for the journey back to Milan.
