What you can expect

Hi, I am Tanja and I come from the lake Como area - a real local. Let me take you on a discovery tour that you won't forget!

I will welcome you at the train station Como Nord Lago. Getting there is easy: you can catch the train from Milano Nord Cadorna Station departing 9:00 am and arrive at 9:55 am in Como.

Ready to kick off? We'll start the day with an Italian Espresso while admiring one of the key landmarks of the city: the Como Cathedral. Explore some hidden gems of the city, walk along cobblestone streets with beautifully decorated buildings and learn more about the Italian culture. You can ask me any questions you want!

Let's move on to the main attraction! We'll discover the beauty of Lake Como and its highlights on a 30 minutes ferry ride. While floating on the dark blue waters, you'll admire its winding shorelines dotted with ancient fishermen villages, beautiful villas, fountains and luxury hotels.

Arriving in Torno, we'll stroll down the little alleys of the picturesque little village and truly enjoy the Lake Como of the past. To replenish our energy, we'll stop for a lunch break with the view on the romantic pier and enjoy a tasting of local cured hams and cheese produced in the mountains nearby.

Relax during a wine tasting in a beautiful and renovated wine bar carved in the rock before going back to Como. Ending our trip on Como Promenade, we can enjoy a last scenic view of the lake while approaching the city center with the ferry.

I can 100% tailor this tour to your wishes, just let me know.
See you soon in Como!
