Lake Como – by Hilary

Lake Como, Italy in July is wonderful!  And even better when flying from Southampton! So easy!

The drive from Milan airport is straightforward and after about half an hour you arrive at Como.  The scenery is just non stop!

Lake Como itself is full of beautiful villas on the lakes edge that you can visit.  The ferries run daily and it’s so easy to buy a daily ticket. You can  hop on an off at your leisure.

We also made a visit to Milan  – the shopping capital of Italy, where the shopping is to ‘die for’!  The dramatic Gothic Cathedral is so interesting, along with La Scala Opera House and the Duke’s Palace.

We took a great excursion on the Bernina Express to the ski resort of St Moritz.  It’s not only the destination, but the journey that is memorable.  Have your camera ready as the little red train snakes up the mountains on it’s breath taking journey through unspoilt Swiss Alps, past magnificent glaciers and black and white lakes.

We visited Bergamo – the ‘Miniature Florence of the North’.  One of the oldest towns in Italy. Your guide will enchant you with tales of time long ago. Bergamo is full of unique churches and here you can discover the past in old architecture and intricate artwork.

Lake Como is such a great place to relax, but at the same time there is so much to see and do.  A real memorable destination!
