Lake Como

Described by poet William Wordsworth as a “treasure whom the earth keeps to herself,” Lake Como is the center of a region that’s both wild and civilized, decadent and low-key, enormous and intimate.

    5 Days: Essential Lake Como

    Life on Lake Como is all about indulgence. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.

    • Day 1

      After settling into your hotel, acclimate to the leisurely pace at Lake Como. Indagare can arrange can’t-miss excursions like a private boat tour on an antique power boat, which is an enjoyable introduction to the lake and is best followed by aperitivo at your hotel and an alfresco dinner.

    • Day 2

      Depart your hotel for a guided visit to the lake’s most beautiful gardens and villas (including the esteemed Villa Balbianello and boat drive-by’s of the homes of George Clooney and Richard Branson). Have a long lunch at one of Indagare’s favorite waterside restaurants before returning to your hotel for an afternoon at leisure.

    • Days 3-5

      Lake Como is primarily a relaxation destination, so Indagare would suggest a five-day trip, with two days of free time built in. This time can be spent hiking, enjoying watersports, exploring the region’s charming waterfront towns or just unwinding at your hotel.

Indagare’s Emma Pierce
“Cocktail hour is a daily ritual at Villa d’Este. Sitting outdoors at the white tablecloth–topped tables, watching the hotel guests mingle and the sunset light shimmer on the lake became an occasion my family and I looked forward to each evening.”
