About the Italy lake region walking stay
Your walking holiday in the Italy lake region: The romantic landscape of Lake Como has seduced artists and travellers for many years. The lake is known worldwide for its magnificent villas and sumptuous gardens, its wonderful microclimate and stunning panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.
During this Italy walking trip, you will stay in one of the prettiest Italian villages, Bellagio, known affectionately as "the pearl of the Lario". This former fishing village - perched on a hill - is very popular with the Milanese people: picture postcard pretty with its alleyways and streets, red roof houses, terrace cafés and camelia and rhododendron gardens.
You follow panoramic walking paths lined with olive trees and palm trees and subtrobical vegetation. You walk past pretty churches and chapels and picture postcard stone house hamlets as well as visiting the gardens of the Villa Carlotta, Villa Balbianello and Villa Melzi.
An ideal stay that combines a gentle way of life with hiking between the lake and the mountains: the real dolce vita!
Your boat pass will allow you to plan your days as you wish, choosing which villas to visit on which days, in your own time. Why not treat yourself to a Spritz cocktail in Varenna, or stroll along Varenna's lido!
