Day 1: Arrival in Como / Lugano
Today, your will arrive at the first hotel in the surroundings of Lake Como and Lugano. Here you will spend the first 2 nights.
Day 2: Como lake and surroundings /Lugano
For today we recommend visiting the Lake of Lugano and the city with the same name. You can visit this lake, which is more than two thirds in Switzerland and is no less than 288 m deep. After a walk through Lugano continue driving along the lake over the border to the quaint village of Valsolda. Then to the Val d’Intelvi, which together with the side-valley connects Lake Lugano and Lake Como.
We recommend a nice trip through the Borromean Gulf from Stresa to Vernabia. In the Middle Ages there were military garrisons on the Borromean Islands and monasteries, but that was changed by the renowned Milanese Borromeo family in the 18th century. They made a palace island of Isola Bella, a natural island of Isola Madre and a garden island of Isola Pescatori. How about a boat trip to the most famous of the three islands, Isola Bella? Here you will find the impressive Palazzo Borromeo and a magnificent baroque garden.
You can also choose today to go shopping in the elegant city of Como and then the panorama route will take you to the kindest Cadenabbia. Along the west side of Lake Como is the famous Villa Carlotta with its beautiful gardens. From Cadenabbia you may want to take a boat to the elegant resort of Bellagio. Plenty of opportunities for a wonderful holiday! A gothic cathedral, the Duomo Square, the Brera district with its many design and fashion shops, the old neighbourhood of Navigli, art galleries … what a diverse city!
Day 3: Lake Como, Lake Garda / Verona (ca. 110 mi/ 180 km)
You can drive from Lake Como, possibly with a visit to Milan to Lake Garda. There are many possibilities, such as a scenic route along the western side of the lake, past picturesque villages like Sirmione, Desenzano, Salo and the beautiful Limone. Each of these is a break in itself. Or take a scenic tour to the rugged Dolomites to Lake Molveno. If you like walking, then this natural environment gives the ideal backdrop for a solid ride. After the walk you can have a nice rest on a terrace in Molveno.
Day 4: Lake Garda / Veronagarda and surroundings
Tip for today: a visit to Verona, a city with a rich history. Things worth seeing include the balcony of Romeo and Juliet, the Scaligerbrug, the 12th-century cathedral, the Roman Arena where the summer opera performances are staged and the San Zeno Maggiore, the centre piece decorated church of northern Italy.
