Day 1

Arrival in Como with your own transportation. From here we continue along the shore to a farmhouse near Val d'Intelvi in the Lario valley. A true oasis of peace where you can walk at your leisure and enjoy the unspoilt nature. Dinner at the farmhouse and overnight.

Day 2

After breakfast, meet with your naturalistic guide for a half-day hike on the Greenway path around Lake Como. We will cover a distance of 10 km through Lario municipalities, passing historical villages, rural landscapes and characteristic buildings and gardens.  About halfway into the trek, stop for lunch to rejuvenate and taste local fare. For the fittest walkers it is possible to return along a more challenging inland path over the hillsides. Before returning to the farmhouse, we recommend visiting Villa Balbianello and its lush gardens. Dinner and overnight in the farmhouse.

Day 3

After breakfast, spend a half day visiting Como's historical centre surrounded by medieval walls, and walk along the gorgeous lake streets from Villa Olmo to Villa Geno. For an exhilarating view, head to the village of Brunate situated 700 m above sea level and take the panoramic funicular railway up the mountain. Upon arrival, follow the path to the Lighthouse of San Maurizio where the vista extends over Lake Como all the way to the Madonnina (statue of the Virgin Mary) atop the Cathedral of Milan. Back in Como, board the train for a quick trip to Milan where you will check in at your B&B for the next two nights.

Day 4

After an early breakfast, your guide awaits you for an unusual visit to Milan's artistic and historical quarters, and a delightful walk along the city's charming Navigli canals. Lunch where you choose and time for shopping at the end of your tour! Milano lights up in the evening with an endless variety of options to choose from: nightclubs, pubs, museums, squares, trendy restaurants and even trams that serve dinner while moving around the city streets. Enjoy the nightlife as you please and then return to the B&B for a good night's rest.

Day 5

After breakfast, free time to visit the most important quarters of Milan: Brera, Sant'Ambrogio, the Montenapoleone fashion district, the Sforza-family Castle... and more! With so many temptations, you might consider staying just a bit longer!
