Day 1: Arrive in Milan

Welcome to Milan! After your arrival at the airport, make your own way to your hotel for check-in and then enjoy the remainder of the day to relax and start exploring this cosmopolitan city.

Day 2: Como & Bellagio

Following breakfast at your hotel, make your way to the meeting point at Largo Cairoli corner Via Cusani to join the group for the full-day excursion to Como and Bellagio. Nestled between the huge snow-capped Alps that rise up from its shores is the fashionable lakeside town of Como. After spending time shopping and dining, you will take a two-hour panoramic cruise on Lake Como. Lake Como is the third largest lake in Europe and is surrounded by stunning alpine scenery and beautiful villages famed for their high-quality silk production. During your cruise, admire the lakeside villas and keep an eye out for Villa d'Este at Cernobbio, a luxurious hotel set in tropical gardens. The mild Mediterranean climate ensures an abundance of exotic and rare plants that thrive year-round. Docking at the town of Bellagio, one of the most famous towns on the lake, you can follow the steep alleys running up from the lake and stop for a coffee or gelato at one of the lively cafes housed in grand historic buildings. Spend some time at your leisure here before cruising back to Como. In the afternoon, return to Milan for a well-deserved rest at your hotel. (B)

Day 3: Milan

Enjoy breakfast and a morning at leisure to spend as you please. At 2.30 pm reach the meeting point at Largo Cairoli corner Via Cusani for the regular afternoon half-day city tour of Milan. Take a look at the medieval Sforza Castle, one of the most impressive urban castles in Europe. The Sforzesco was once the residence of the ruling family of Milan and now hosts several of the city's museums and art collections. Visit the splendid Duomo Cathedral, a striking example of Gothic art and the largest church in Italy. Try to count the statues crammed onto its roof and façade, there are more than 3.200 of them, before following your guide on the visit to the interior. Exiting the Duomo, walk through Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping gallery, a 19th-century glass vaulted shopping arcade. Brimming with fashionable shops and cafes, it used to be the connecting path between the Cathedral and the La Scala Opera House, so the ladies could stay dry on their way to the theatre in case of rain. At the end of the Galleria, you arrive at Milan’s most famous Opera House: the fabulous La Scala theatre. Founded in 1778 and still in use, some of the world’s greatest musicians and opera singers have performed here including Pavarotti, Maria Callas and Giuseppe Verdi. (B)
