Visit Lake Como in October
Home to dramatic scenery, magnificent villas and plenty of sports cars, it’s no surprise that Italy’s most elite lake took centre stage in the final scene of ‘Casino Royale’ (2006), and October is proving a more and more popular time of year to visit Lake Como; enjoy the incredible scenery and breathtaking landscape of steep, pine-swathed mountains as autumn fully arrives in Italy, with added solo appeal.
Follow in 007’s footsteps and choose from two tours, both departing 16 October 2021 with No Single Supplement and staying at the 4-star historic Grand Hotel Menaggio right on the lakefront - you can’t help but notice the hotel from the water, its old-world charm really stands out!
Included is a lake cruise to one of the most famous and stunningly located 18th-century Villa del Balbianello, once a home of the Visconti family and the Italian mountaineer Guido Monzino, and now the setting for celebrity weddings and films such as ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Casino Royale’. Enjoy an additional cruise to elegant Villa Carlotta on Grand Hotel on Lake Como.
