Luxury Gourmet Experience on Italy's Lakes

Discover the stunning Lakes region in northern Italy with this tour of Lake Como and Lake Maggiore.

The Lakes region has a bit of celebrity status. Situated in the north of Italy, it’s frequented by the likes of George Clooney and Richard Branson. But they were far from the first; the lush picturesque area has been a favorite vacation destination by Italians and Europeans for centuries. With its wonderful micro-climate — due to the green valleys and snow-capped mountain peaks of the Alps — as well as abundance of flora and fauna, it’s picturesque and relaxing in every way. The mythic region is made even more magical by the old villas and plethora of gardens. Pair this beauty with a hearty cuisine and gastronomy — with dishes like risotto, pasta, stracotto, and ossobucco — and the region has the makings of an unbelievable trip, particularly in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.

This exclusive trip starts in the medieval town of Menaggio and Lake Como, one of the best known lakes of the area and one of the most romantic cities in the region, Bellagio. The foodie tour continues in Stresa on the shores of Lake Maggiore, which stretches from Switzerland down into Italy. With stunning panoramic views, travelers will also get a chance to see the island jewels, the scenic Borromean Islands, among the lake’s dazzling blue waters and visit the island’s palaces and gardens. The tour concludes in the famous city of Milan, home to chic boutiques and fashion designers, as well as an array of art, including the famous Last Supper fresco.
