Discover the Italian Lakes on our self-guided walking holiday on the shores of Lake Como
Glistening waters, colourful villages and manicured vineyards, all wrapped up in a dramatic mountain backdrop. Lake Como is a gem you are sure to fall in love with. Lake Como has been the holiday destination of choice for the rich and famous since Roman times, when aristocrats were seduced by the lavish villas and magnificent gardens. Today it remains a holiday favourite of George Clooney and Richard Branson who are drawn to its beautiful scenery and exquisite location.
Nestled in the Italian Lakes just a couple of hours from Milan, the region offers a fantastic network of trails and ancient mule tracks, leading you from pretty villages to spectacular villas and gardens. We have specially designed this trip with flexibility in mind, providing you with a selection of walks and Villa entrances including Carlotta and Balbaniello which can be under taken in any order; allowing you to make the most of your time in the area. Your walks will take you cruising across the lake; to panoramic views; and meandering through orchards and olive groves all at your own pace. Each night you'll stay in a beautiful lakeshore village on the south west shore of the lake with views you will never want to leave. Life on Lake Como really is ‘la dolce vita’.
