Lake Como remains the most elegant of the Italian lakes. Its golden age came in the 19th century when its romantic scenery and equitable climate attracted the likes of Queen Victoria, Flaubert, Tennyson and Liszt, but centuries earlier it was favoured by Julius Caesar and both Pliny’s were born here. Today, George Clooney and Donatella Versace are amongst the celebrities who own secluded villas here, whilst the lakeside towns with their pastel houses of pink and yellow, set against a backdrop of the southern Alps make the area a highly sought after film location.
For many years, travellers to Europe have benefitted financially by booking late, but this trend has now been reversed and to avoid supplements on the air fare, early booking is recommended.
*Optional excursions may take more than 30 people.
