About
See two of Europe’s most picturesque lakes—Como in Italy and Lugano in Switzerland—on one day trip from Milan. Cruise Lake Como, and have free time to explore pretty lakeside towns on either side of the Swiss-Italian border. Travel by bus and ferry along the way instead of stressing about driving and navigation. Hear commentary about Como, learning more about the area than you would on your own.

Highlights
  • Visit Como, Italy, and Lugano, Switzerland, in one day
  • Get out of the lakeside towns and onto the water on a Lake Como cruise
  • Have enough time to explore Bellagio and Lugano independently
  • Hassle-free, round-trip transportation from Milan 
What to expect
  • Your morning starts with pickup from central Milan by air-conditioned coach. After the drive to Como, board a boat for a lake cruise. Take advantage of the time spent cruising the water by snapping photos of glamorous villas and listening to guide commentary about the Como area. Next, enjoy free time and lunch (at own expense) in Bellagio, a pretty waterfront town of stone staircases and cobbled lanes also known as “the pearl of Lake Como.” Afterward, reboard the coach for the journey across the Swiss border to Lugano, a picturesque small city on the northern shore of a glacial lake. Explore independently: choosing to browse Swiss chocolate and luxury goods shops, walk along the waterfront, or visit religious sites like the Chiesa di Santa Maria degli Angioli. Your day ends with drop-off at the original departure point in the late afternoon.

Extreme tour and guide
Oct 2021 • Family
Book the tour from City Wonders in Viator. Abit of hiccups as I forgot to bring my passport. Took a taxi to get it from my hotel. Was travelling with elderly mum. She is very patient and always make sure everyone was here before leaving each place.I have encountered guides leaving behind without counting!

The guide was Katerina. She is extreme patient and was friendly. Very clear explanation of Lake Como, Bellagio and Luganio and gave tips of what food to try and local specialties. Ask for Katerina. She is the best. I enjoyed every bit of this tour.

Dear lauracC9930MX, Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback. First and foremost, I would like to express how sorry I am to hear that you missed your Como Lake with Bellagio and Lugano day trip from Milan. Double checking in our system, there was a total amount of 30 clients that joined this tour successfully yesterday. We understand that finding locations in a new city can be difficult. However, it is responsibility of each client to be at the meeting point 15 min before the departure for the check-in. I'm afraid we cannot accommodate late arrivals in order to follow the timing of our tours and to respect all group's scheduling. We thank you for your understanding and wish you a lovely day. Best regards, Simona City Wonders

Good…not great
Oct 2021 • Friends
We were really looking forward to the trip but it was disappointing. We were waiting around for 45 minutes after departure time before leaving. We were stuck in traffic on the way to Lugano from Milan which is understandable but had we left on time we probably would have had more time in Lugano instead of only 35 minutes. This was such a shame as it was a lovely city and it would have been nice to spend more time there.

We had 2hrs 20mins in Bellagio which was far too long as there’s not much to see or do. The cruise after this was 2 hours and again far too long - we fell asleep half way through.

Kind regards, Federica City Wonders

Fantastic, so glad we booked this tour! Beautiful
Our tour and guide was amazing. We traveled from Rome, Florence, Montalcino and then to Milan. We made a last minute decision to go on this tour due to the increased amount of free time to explore on our own. The guide interesting tidbits of history and pop culture along the way but wasn’t in your face the whole time like some tour guides. This is one of the highlights of our entire trip!

A beautiful day trip
This tour was an excellent way to spend the day. Valentina was a great tour guide, full of fun facts and very energetic. My favorite kind of tour is where the guide gives you time to wander and experience the town on your own. The bus was very comfortable, as well. We left the train station promptly and the entire itinerary was very much on time. In Lugano there is enough time to grab a snack and walk around after Valentina gives the details of which shops are good to visit. In Bellagio there is more time, so you can get lunch and walk and shop before meeting up with the group again. Valentina also gave recommendations of restaurants and shops before sending us on our way. The 2 hr boat ride is nice and you get beautiful views of the towns around the lakes and all the nice villas while Valentina shares more fun facts. After that, you get back in the bus for about an hour and can take a nice nap after a long day. Take your passport because you are crossing the border into Switzerland (Lugano), so you can't get on the tour bus without it!!!
