Three nights in Venice plus three nights at Lake Como, in Bellagio. We suggest starting this plan at Lake Como, but we can do it either way, with a flight into Milan or a flight into Venice.
If you haven’t been to Lake Como, this is the perfect way to see it, from the grand hotel with the best location on the lake, the Villa Serbelloni. Bellagio itself is the most popular destination on the lake, and you’ll have plenty of time to explore it. But you can also take boats to nearby attractions including Varenna, our favorite village on the lake, Villa Carlotta, and Villa Balbianello. There is also the beautiful Tremezzo Palace located in Tremezzo, right across from Bellagio.
To get between Lake Como and Venice, you get a private driver, who picks you up in Bellagio or Tremezzo and drives you across northern Italy all the way to Venice, dropping you at Piazzale Roma. Once you arrive, just grab a water taxi to your hotel.
On your second day in Venice, there’s a half-day walking tour with private guide.
If you prefer, we can arrange to use the trains between Como and Venice, instead of a private driver. Doing that would save money. You would still get private transfers between the hotels and the train stations. Let us know if you wish to substitute trains for the private driver.
