SATURDAY DAY 1:    MILAN

Welcome to Milan, the global capital of fashion and design but also Roman remains, Medieval piazzas and Neoclassical palaces. Check in to our accommodation and meet your IOAB tour leader and the other travellers at 3:00pm.  Head down to the historical centre passing by the spectacular Duomo, Vittorio Emanuele II's gallery, the world famous La Scala opera house, the medieval Castello Sforzesco to conclude in the Navigli, a popular area in Milan where you will enjoy the city aperitivo time, something of an institution in Milan. 

 

SUNDAY DAY 2:   LAKE COMO, BELLAGIO, VARENNO & COMO

In the morning we will travel to Como by local train . After a 1h30 minutes ride, arrive to Como, situated on the banks of the lake, encircled by enchanting hills and famours for being the birthplace of many historically notable figures including the scientist Alessandro Volta. Here you will have free time to check out the many interesting sites whilst meandering through the streets of Como, visit the historical monuments, beautiful villas and breath-taking sights. 

We will then take a ferry across the lake Como towards Bellagio, a small village at the top of a long hilly promontory between the two southern branches of Lake Como. This elegant but tiny town is an excellent place to relax and enjoy the lovely views, classy boutiques, two gardens to visit, picturesque lanes, a choice of restaurants and bars. After Bellagio catch a ferry to Varenna, an attractive village on the eastern shore of Lake Como with the picturesque lanes and old fishermen's houses for a perfect gelato or cold drink with amazing views. Back to Milan in the evening.
