Lake Como and its villas tour

The soothing and elegant atmosphere of Lake Como is inimitable. Since the Roman age, it has been a leisure location for aristocrats and still, due to the quite impervious configuration, it has not been reached by the mass tourism. From the Renaissance to the Napoleonic age, wealthy families, clergymen and politicians have built here their summer residences. This exclusive guided tour will take you along the lakeside, to discover some of these art treasures: Villa del Balbianello, Villa Erba, Villa Carlotta and Villa Melzi d'Eril, also famous for its garden. You will be astonished by their beauty and by the harmony between architecture and landscape. After just one day, a light will be shining forever in your eyes and your soul.
