About
This full-day tour will start at 10:30 a.m. in Como city. We will show you the most important attractions of Como like the Cathedral, the San Fedele Church, the Roman city walls and towers and will bring you in the particular atmosphere of the charming Como lake town. After a short lunch break we will take a speed boat to Lenno (about 40 minutes), where the villa Balbianello is located. After the visit to the villa Balbianello and its garden, where the famous scenes from Star Wars and James Bond Casino Royal were filmed, we will visit the San Stefano Church with the 11th century's crypt. We will return with the normal boat (this trip takes 1,5h), to have a possibility to show you the most beautiful villas on the lake during the trip. We will finish our tour in the Como city at 18 p.m. Group type: private tour

My mother and I enjoyed Como and Villa Balbianello with this tour, especially thanks to our wonderful guide Violetta. She took us all essential places to visit and told a lot of interesting things about Como. Not only about Como but also she advised me where to visit and do in Milan from her many experience and it was so helpful. I strongly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to go around efficiently and get to know well about this beautiful city! It’s definitely worth paying money for it.

母と2人で参加し、素敵なガイドViolettaさんの案内でコモの街を堪能しました。主要な観光名所をすべておさえ、また街に関する興味深い話をたくさんして下さいました。コモだけでなく、ミラノ観光についても豊富な経験からアドバイスしてくださり、大変ありがたかったです。コモを効率よく回りたい方、よく知りたい方におすすめします。価格に見合うツアーです。
